Whisky Reviews for Invergordon 2006 TWB

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.50 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    It's a good recipe for making a young grain palatable, but it's still young grain so nothing miraculous once you get past the wall of wood. I find this a few points better than its sister octave with PX finish.

    Next to the PX version this one smells like someone set a sherry cask on fire so it might not be the choice for those who become livid over abundant sulphur...

    Serge from Whiskyfun says:

    Invergordon 7 yo 2006/2014 (61.5%, The Whisky Barrel, Burns Malt, Pedro Ximenez sherry Octave finish, cask #901446D) Three stars and a half I know, sounds like it’s a weapon of mass destruction but we’ve had a sister cask earlier this year and found it pretty good. Some action! Colour: dark amber. Nose: I had found a blend of rum and armagnac in the other cask, and that’s what I’m getting again. I have to say this feeling is very pleasant, with dried bananas, raisins, prunes and plain sugarcane juice. And it’s even kind of light(ish) at this strength. With water: fun stuff. Pine cones in a barbecue, light pipe tobacco, artisan milk chocolate (no crappy vegetal greases and oils on top of cocoa), whiffs of thyme and rosemary… Its unusual, it’s very nice. Mouth (neat): bang! Tends to tear your head off. My, this is strong. I do seem to find notes of bacon, but I’m not too sure. Quick… With water: very good, even if it got a tad dry/planky. Chocolate, ham, grapes, gingerbread… Finish: quite long, with smoky bacon, chocolate and oranges. Sounds unlikely, but it’s not. Too bad the aftertaste is a little bitter. Comments: fun spirit. Who cares about how it’s done? It’s like the law and sausages, as the Germans use to say. SGP:651 - 83 points.
