The Flora and Fauna series is a sadly discontinued range of whiskies, each with an illustration of an animal on the bottle. This Inchgower is very rare. It’s also not one that independents see much of, so this is one of your only chances to try the output from this quietly elegant distillery.
The nose is quite light and delicate. There is a zesty tang with notes of sugary citrus, hints of stemmy hay and a gentle breeze pushing barley in a summer field. Tones of blossom and apple peel with cocoa. The palate is fresh with hay and petals, notes of arak and well-balanced tannins. There are some spicy notes with cystallized stem ginger. The finish is of medium length with spice and a tangy citrus note.
