Whisky Reviews for Invergordon 1988 DR

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Vanilla and especially coconut at first. A little less intense afterwards, it evokes a bourbon with floral notes. On the palate, full but light, rich and silky, huge on honey and vanilla. Some sweet spices swallowing. Nice finish with a little dryness in the aftertaste. With a little water, a little cooler on the nose. The mouth is a little less intense, but I also recognize some white chocolate. Final always so beautiful.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Nice, very nice, but nothing in it, I am really searching for... maybe good for the combination with good chocolate...

    Yes, I am very much
    impressed with this Invergordon, I must say.
    • Nose
      Very pleasant and creamy
      nose, but I cannot identify it as a grain whisky. Quite herbal. Loads of green
      herbs in combination with bown sugar, Brésilienne nuts and whipped cream. Hardly
      any spices to speak of. After a few moment, a lot of candied fruit kicks in,
      without me being able to pinpoint any. Apricots maybe? This is very interesting.
    • Taste
      It is very creamy on the
      palate, on spicy oak. Now it reminds me of bourbon. The whipped cream returns,
      but now on a cup of coffee. Maybe even some coconut and chocolate. A wonderful
      smokiness appears. That must be from the oak.
    • Finish
      The smokiness is even more
      pronounced in the long finish, to completely wrap around the honey and candied
      fruit.
