Whisky Reviews for Inverleven 1985 GM

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Inverleven has also seen the inside of that Lomond still. It shares similarities with Littlemill and Inchmurrin, but the palate of this Inverleven lacked a certain fruitiness, which would've lifted it to another level.
    • Nose
      Starting on whiffs of menthol and mint, accompanied by soft oak, but really needs a few minutes to open up. That's when the tropical fruits start begging for attention—mango, pineapple and whispers of lime zest. The vanilla custard is also undeniable.
    • Taste
      Fairly creamy mouthfeel with hints of cardboard and white chocolate, as well as a touch of ginger and white pepper, and whiffs of banana and vanilla. Finally a subtle oakiness.
    • Finish
      Lingering vanilla and grassiness.
