Whisky Reviews for Invergordon 1972 Sb

- Invergordon 1972 - 2012, 40 years, 40.5% alc .;
Bottler: Zanzibar whiskey
Region: Lowlands, Scotland
Special feature: Single Grain
The next Invergordon - I'm curious.
Nose: gentle with vanilla and coconut, some caramel and floral sweetness. Very fresh, he needs time to develop. The sweetness is also reminiscent of marshmallows and sugared strawberries.
Palate: Fruer than the nose, slight bitterness - but without much oak. Some honey and the strawberries are back. Strawberries with custard. At the bottom, less fruit, but bitter black tea.
Finish: medium long, drier than expected. Towards the end with a light spice.
Conclusion: A really nice whiskey, some a single malt in the age you skin with a wooden board in the face. By contrast, this 40-year-old single grain has kept his freshness and, all in all, without blemish.

- Nose: clove, Roestaromen, slightly dark fruit, strawberry, coconut, burnt bread, cane sugar, great range of flavors, very complex, no "grainy notes"
Taste: dark sweetness, which is becoming more and more pungent, mango, gummy, coconut, clove, very oily
Finish: Grain comes to the fore with some bitter notes, long, sweet with lots of vanilla and coconut, oak is perceptible, but not negative but well embedded.
Great part, blind, I would never have come to a grain
