    Invergordon 46 yo 1972/2018 (49.9%, The Finest Malts, City Landmarks, bourbon barrel, cask #32) Four stars and a half
    Are you allowed to call yourself The Finest Malts and then bottle some grain whisky? Well, after all they also call McDonald’s ‘restaurants’… (S., why don’t you just drop your two-pence jokes for good?) Colour: gold. Nose: good, we all know that these really old Invergordons are the best grain whiskies available to man (including bourbon) and this seems to be just another example. Macaroons, olive oil, marzipan, grape pip oil, miso, camphor (touches), old chardonnay, damp magazines, vegetable bouillons… Indeed, we’re almost in malty territories, btw, looks like we haven’t even mentioned vanilla! Mouth: extra-good, just the inherent thinness does prevent it from reaching the heights (which some 1960s ‘gordons may sometimes do). Many cakes and oils, more old white wines, walnuts, perhaps a touch of cardboard… It’s really good that this baby did not go into some pricy blends (and a shame that some others that we just had did not either). Finish: medium, rather sweet and sour, in a good way. Banana wine. Comments: a complex old grain that you could almost drink with food, like a wine. Say with bouillabaisse?
    SGP:651 - 88 points.
