Whisky Reviews for Invergordon 1987 MM

  1. grinface scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    It didn't turn out that well. I can understand the wish that the finish could make something shine here, but the alcohol is simply not well integrated in many places. Leaving it in the sherry for longer was probably not an option either, as it is already extremely dry. Another Re-Rack would probably have been too expensive. There is no other way I can explain why it was bottled like this.

    In general, not bad, but a lot of grain in the taste, the finish in the sherry did not save, the miracle did not happen, sorry ...
