    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Invergordon 24 yo 1988/2012 (55.5%, Single Cask Collection, barrel, cask #18589, 188 bottles) That is right, we’re insisting. Colour: white wine. Nose: ah, this is more to my liking, probably thanks to a better cask. It’s leafier, with some teas, banana skins, a little menthol, and various apples, certainly not overripe or as stale juice this time. Like this freshness. With water: some wool and some chalk, which just works for me. Mouth (neat): once again, it’s got more depth, a vibrant citrus, and a feeling of… malt whisky. How could we be against that? With water: a fruit salad with fresh mint leaves. Fresh pineapples may be leading the way. Finish: medium, clean, with a little light rum again, just like in the Maltbarn. Tangerines in the aftertaste. Comments: success! In the case of grain whisky, I may agree with G&M’s new motto, which is that ‘the wood makes the whisky’ (when the distillate’s pretty silent, I would add). SGP:641 - 85 points.

    Invergordon 1988-2012, 24 years; Cask 18589; 55.5% alc.
    Bottler: Single Cask Collection
    Expansion: Bourbon barrel
    Region: Lowlands, Scotland Special feature: Single Grain Whiskey Nose: A freshly harvested cornfield, over which there is still some dust. In addition a fresh fruit, vanilla and ripe apples. Behind it is a note of solvents, which does not have a negative effect. Palate: Very rich and full-bodied, almost creamy. Vanilla cream and toffee, slightly malty and nutty. A touch of lime. Conclusion: great single grain whiskey, unfortunately sold out. 85/100 points (tasted 2014, approx. 70 €)

    A delicious grain. Not highly complex, not particularly deep, but a pleasant all-day companion. Water helps. Good P / L.
    • Nose
      Fine, fragrant nose, slightly alcoholic, pungent. Cereal notes, vanilla, mellow apple, some nail polish remover.
      With water: opens beautifully, becomes fruity, grassy-kräutrig, almost reminiscent of a Lowlander. The Esther note is gone.
    • Taste
      Sweet, full, lush, but also with edges. Vanilla and caramel.
      With water: rounder, more balanced.
    • Finish
      Tart, vanilla, medium long, warming.
      With water: much rounder and more harmonious.
