  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Incredibly good price / performance ratio. Matured grain. Extremely tasty.
    • Nose
      Intense sweet and fruity on the nose. Much sugar. Light molasses but not too pushy. Sticky dried dates.
    • Taste
      Alcohol very well integrated. A lot of caramel and sweet milk chocolate. Some plum. Sweet raisins.

      With water, the grain notes stand out more. It gets a bit spicier, shows coffee and malt.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Stay cute. No unpleasant bitterness.

    10 years is actually a pretty young age for single grain bottlings. The finish in a first-fill ex-PX sherry cask, however, charges the whiskey with sweet sherry in such a way that the character of Invergordon is completely covered. A feast for lovers of sherry bombs! Nevertheless, I noticed the smell of glue that is typical for me, which often bothers me a bit with single grain whiskeys.

    • Nose
      The sherry clearly dominates the first impression. This brings an almost overwhelming fruit palette of dark fruits and dried fruits. The undertone is rather sour. I am thinking primarily of (sour) cherries, black currants and raisins. As with many (younger) grain bottlings, I notice a slight smell of glue behind the sherry. Then a slight spiciness from the barrel is noticeable. I find bittersweet, dark chocolate and baking cocoa, as well as sourdough bread and some leather.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is a lot sweeter than in the nose. The sweetness of the PX Sherry builds more and more in the mouth, covering everything else for the moment. I have seldom had such a sweet whiskey in my glass. I now only perceive the fruit as candied fruit. The sweet taste mainly reminds me of brown rock candy.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and the sweetness doesn't retreat a step until the end. Fudge and Butterscotch candies remain. The oak is also completely covered by the sweetness in the finish.

      With water:
      Aroma and mouthfeel hardly change. However, I have the impression that the slight spiciness and the chocolate in the finish come into their own a little more alongside the sweetness.

      The sherry is very dominant at the beginning and the alcohol is also present. After 15 minutes it becomes much more balanced and harmonious. Then comes a PX sweet with a lot of plum jam, some leather and everything is very tasty. Water only makes it milder, but it does not bring anything new (perhaps a minimal spiciness).
      Delicious drink, but a little too pleasant for me.
    • Taste

      Very easy to drink, too, a lot of PX sweetness in the foreground. Alcohol for the age and barrel strength but ok. Milder with water here too, and maybe some spice out the back. Delicious, but one-dimensional.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Also not very short due to the alcohol and remains slightly sweet.
