This Invergordon is incredibly multi-layered and multi-faceted, wonderfully sweet and fruity on the nose, wooden and muted in the taste and aftertaste. A harmonious pleasure experience where I like the nose the best, I could smell for hours on this wonderful nose!
Intense amber with an orange shimmer shines in the Premium Snifter, on the glass wall sticks a variety of small syrupy drops which slowly make their way back into the glass. Sweet and fruity, the first nosing brings together wonderfully harmonious aromas. Vanilla, apricots, caramelised sugar, grated coconut, floral hints, cocoa and milk chocolate compete for the prize. Creamy toffee and old caramel are on display, fruity oranges and tangerines are minimal, hints of Moroccan mint follow. After a few minutes, milk chocolate appears again, hazelnuts join in, associations with soft Toffifee are no longer out of my head. Apricots and pineapples break away from the sweet melange, this Grain looks like a mixture of cognac and rum at the moment. A vanilla pod is scratched out ... Wonderful, I could smell all the time on this wonderful and multi-layered nose.
Lightly burnt sugar and spicy wood tones dominate the first impression. Dark cereal notes mingle with dried oranges, the wooden impact lingers in the background all the time while burnt coconut and creamy hazelnut chocolate show up. Gradually sharpness develops, a pinch of white pepper continues to heat up the wooden sharpness, minimally I perceive echoes of burnt wood and roasted grain, as well as a hint of smoke. Maybe I'm even familiar with the hints of smoke, but at the moment only darker woody notes, roasted aromas and somehow minimally burned wood dominate. Coconut and fresh mint tear me out of my thoughts, baked bananas follow ... A wonderful interplay of flavors.
For a long time, the palate is flooded with chubby warmth and voluminous aromas. Toasted cereals, coconut, sweet vanilla, apricots, oranges, honey and spicy woody notes stick to the palate, the aftertaste gives the appearance as if he never wanted to fade away and fade. Roasted coconut flakes adhere to the tongue, and hints of rum reappear. Creamy and fruity, the partly dark aromas swim under the tongue for a long time, hazelnuts and chocolate slowly fade out the aftertaste. What remains is an oily greasy yet fresh mouthfeel with a touch of exotic fruits and a few drops of rum pot.
