  1. JoshNRW scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Oh yes, these are the grains that are really fun (over 40+). This even has 56 years under its belt and only 39 percent. I tasted it as the end point of a small Invergordon tasting in which I also had two other 32-year-old Invergordon grains from the rum cask (WB208039 and WB213707).
    As a starter, there was a rather weak 24-year-old Grain from Invergordon (WB197684).

    Without question, this is the best of the four.

      A typical old grain nose with hints of glue, wood glue and a luscious sweetness at the beginning.
      With a 56-year-old whiskey, however, I treat it to another 30 minutes in the blender glass, because up until now it has been a bit one-dimensional.
      It's getting a little nuttier. Now a little fruitier, like dried plums.
      The complexity or rather the interplay is limited, but right from the start there are a lot of flavors that you only find in old grains and I really appreciate that.

      Hmm, I always like that a lot. That sticky sweetness and soft wood on the palate. No surprises here either. You can feel the 56 years and the oak wood most clearly here.
      The 39 percent doesn't seem too thin to me either, because the aromas are still transported sufficiently intensively. I can still find marzipan here.

      The mouthfeel is dry and oily, as you would expect from the key data. Surprisingly low wood and bitterness, but I guess that's due to the low percentage. This is also where the second "weakness" (besides the lack of complexity) becomes apparent, because the finish is just about long: but of course, here one naturally wishes that the whiskey would not disappear from the palate for the next half hour. Still close and complaints on a high level and somehow for me at the same time the best part of the whiskey.

    Although he only has 39% and can only call himself Spirit, he still has enough intensity. To be honest, I don't necessarily miss a few percent more. It's only noticeable on the finish. Otherwise an old grain as you imagine it. Was really tasty.
    • Nose
      Some hairspray. wood stain. furniture polish. Rum and bourbon notes. bitter almond. Sweet popcorn. fudge Brittle. Whiskey ring cake. Coconut. Aromatic, partly ethereal wood tones.
    • Taste
      Sweetened Oat Milk. Molasses. Tipsy honey apple. Rum balls. amaretto Coconut cookies. Then comes beautiful wood spice.
    • Finish
      apricot peel. The sweetness is now decreasing and it is getting drier. The oak tones range from fresh to dusty.

    OK, it's not whiskey, it's spirit. But it's not a new spirit, it's old spirit. There were times when it would have been whiskey (still).

    But let's be honest: Fuck it.

    Forget the price for a moment.

    Judge what you have in the glass. And that is, to put it in the words of the whiskydruid: "great stuff".

    Honey, vanilla, corn flakes, fruit, crunchy country, a little yeast, very light sweet must.

    Not my whiskey, actually. And then another grain. Maybe I've just had too many bad bottlings lately to celebrate this whiskey here. Anyway, delicious is delicious.
