Whisky Reviews for Invergordon 1974 KiW

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.81 points

  1. GJR scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Just in, not available yet (3 weeks before this will hit the stores). Price approx 175 euro for a 43 years old whisky.

    If you like grain this is a no-brainer, although body and finish suffers a tiny bit due to the low abv.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This one has a lot of that glue that I really used to dislike grains for. Even though I don't mind it that much, it doesn't have the greatness of most '73 Invergordons.
    • Nose
      Glue, lime, vanilla and peanut.
    • Taste
      Blood orange, vanilla sugar, glue, almond and caramel.
    • Finish
      Sweet lime, raspberry and caramel

  3. Rowald Sweet Empire scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Contains all the classic old Invergordon notes: toffee, nuts, caramel, vanilla. Yet it lacks the flavoursome power that comes with 46+% abv (I think with drams like this the sweet spot is between 49-54%). It's nice and subtle but a bit too subtle.

  4. Cubey666 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Tasted at the L&B whiskey weekend 20-1-2018, and later on at the Tasting Whisky Festival 13-1-2019.

    nose and taste: Vanilla, butter cake, coconut rasps, bit dusty like and old book, but elegant.
    finish is sweet like sugar together with liquorice root and salmiak
