    [February, 2019] A new very old Invergordon by Dino is certainly interesting - I liked the previous release (WB id 117891) very much despite I am not a great fan of grain whiskies at all...

    ...and this is fine bottling too. The nose is very complex and quite interesting to explore and both taste and finish are flawless. Grain lovers will adore this, for sure - but even to me as a pure malt-head it is very enjoyable. Another great pick by Dino.
    • Nose
      90 90
      The colour is yellow gold and the nose offers a delicate old style grain profile with adorable fruits, manuka honey, autumn floral notes (dry hay stacks) and the obligatory solvent aromas all old grains own (nail varnish remover, aceton). It is very complex and nicely balanced - actually one of the best grain noses I had so far...
    • Taste
      89 89
      The taste is complex on basically the same profile as was the nose with stronger barley sugars and less grainy flavours. Later some spices and a pinch of salt kick in together with herbal and earthy notes. Water releases some shoe polish and chalky-mineral aromas in the nose and grassy-earthy flavours on the palate - but to be honest: I like the neat dram best.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The dram arrives warming and coating on the palate with a minor drying feeling from the taninns which is absolutely okay after 45 years in an oak cask. The finish is long and adds more bitter herbal and tobacco flavours that are a nice counterpoint to the rather sweet taste. Again there is a minor drying moment towards the end but this is not distracting either.
