    During a tasting, the bottle was opened and tasted.
    42 years are an announcement and then when it says Fassfass I was really happy, that was not quite so.
    A whiskey with right corners and edges that will meet one or the other, for me he was very exciting.
    Good but no highlight.
    • Nose
      85 85
      It is surprising that despite the alcohol only 44.5%, the alcohol still burns slightly in the nose.
      But then the Butterscoth comes through nicely but not intrusively and combines with sweet raisin muesli and cream.
    • Taste
      87 87
      He is not really round and balanced.
      First, the sweetness of the honey and the cloves with the spice from the barrel, such as hay meadow and bitter almonds, pops into the mouth on the whole broadside, then a butter biscuit on the pattex comes out a little, in addition.
      You can not really get more.
      But it is also slightly confusing, the whiskey is not directly uncomfortable, but not complex and, above all, not really round.
    • Finish
      83 83
      A long but not strong finish.
      The slight pungency and bitterness of the wood quickly dry and then remain slightly bitter on the tongue.

    Vanilla bourbon, varnish that turns into cream, butterscotch, cereals. Mouth consistent with the nose. This is the 4th Invergordon 1972 that I taste. This is the worst I have tasted, I think it lacks a bit of roundness given its age, and the integration of alcohol is not perfect. Am I getting tired? I wonder if I would have put more hearts if it was my first ...

    Enthusiasm 3/5

    A nice grain but not a must-have.
    • Nose
      Hard to pin down. Alcohol tingles a little. We can still guess caramel, rum-grape ice cream, vanilla and some leather. Light smoke with aeration
    • Taste
      More pep than the nose. A lot of vanilla, cereals, a little spice (clove), wood but no bitterness. Glue and varnish are also there but in withdrawal.
    • Finish
      Long but not very intense. Sweet and woody.

    Cracking old grain nose, with soft wood integrating with vanilla, coconut, marzipan, heather & honey (not too far from a classic Highland Park nose in that regard), almond cake, ginger, old leather and a faint whiff of smoke. Slightly more straightforward on the palate, as for the majority of older grains I have tried, with spicy sweetness (honey and chilli) mingling with the woody oak, although never drifting into bitterness. Medium length, warming but clean finish. A very elegant old grain whisky. Highly recommended.
