Words from Michael Jackson :
Inchgower lies near the fishing town of Buckle, and its whisky is less of 3 Speyside malt in character than a coastal one.
To the palate expecting a more flowery, elegant Speyside malt, this one can seem assertive, or even astringent, in its saltiness. With familiarity, that can
become addictive. A lovely, sustaining dram after a stroll by the sea or a day's fishing. An earlier 12-year-old was slightly sweeter and fractionally more sherryish than the newer 14 year-old. which has more distillery character. The Inchgower distillery was built in 1871. and expanded in 1966.
House style Dry, salty. Restorative or aperitif.

Inchgower Distillery, Speyside
Inchgower distillery was built in 1871 to replace Tochineal distillery but it was liquidated in 1903. Buckie Council purchased the concern in 1936 and ownership was transferred to Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd in 1938 (now part of Diageo).
The distillery is classified as Speyside, yet it is a long way from the region on the Moray Firth, near the fishing port of Buckie. Stylistically it evokes little of the elegant, fragrant Speyside character, it is rather more like a coastal malt. The single malt displays a salty, assertive flavour uncharacteristic of the region. The body is smooth, sweet and malty and the finish dry, delivering the final saltiness.
Just 1% of the production is sold as single malt, the remaining part being used in the Bell's (mainly), and Johnnie Walker.
