    Serge from Whiskyfun says:

    Invergordon 1988/2014 ‘Lemon Cheesecake’ (46%, Wemyss Malts, barrel, 220 bottles)  Colour: light gold. Nose: seemingly rooouuunded, smooooth, with some vaniiiilla (that’ll do, S.), brioche, toasted oak, white chocolate, café latte and only then, a little varnish and bubblegum. A little sawdust too, but since you’re wondering, no or little pencil shavings. Typical nice grain, but not sure ‘nice’ is such good a word here. Mouth: it’s not quite vodka-caramel, and indeed you could think of some slightly stuffy cheesecake. It’s just that it’s also pretty sugary, with a feeling of cane syrup I’m not too fond of. It’s me, it’s not the whisky. Finish: good length, sweet, caramely, chocolaty. ‘Cheesecaky’ indeed but that would not be the much lighter Mitteleuropa cheesecake. Comments: it’s great whisky, but I don’t like it too much. As I said, it’s not the whisky, it’s me. Too sweet for me, but then again, I’m sure it’s great. SGP:730 - 75 points.

    There is not much memory left. Not really convincing and dispensable
    • Nose
      Alcohol, glue, oily, a little vanilla, citrus and eucalyptus, some cucumber, kohlrabi and cabbage are also found
    • Taste
      Alcohol here too, sweet and sour, honey and vanilla, but also cucumber and cabbage, then herbs and some oak
    • Finish
      Hot sweetness and oak, quickly gone again

  4. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Something between shrugging and interesting, that's a bit strange, which I like in itself, but he does not inspire me. Since no overall picture fits together.
    • Nose
      fresh-sour, lemon, herbal vinegar, later sweet bread, honey
    • Taste
      bittersweet (cocoa), slightly burnt, woody, some menthol, fruity with water, but also bitter, the sweetness is lost
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate, oak

    Color : gold. Smell : The first impression is yeast dough, wheat bread, spoon biscuit with fine vanilla, firm caramel, some lime and floral to roses. Above all, the heavy smell of linseed oil / linseed oil depends. Freshly processed wood after a while, nutty (marzipan, almonds) and fruity notes (cassis / currants). Overall, he should have some time in the glass, but not bad. Body : very oily, many streaks on the glass. Taste : creamy-oily texture on the onset, very fruity (lemon, citrus), some wood. The whole thing is enveloped by minty-herbaceous-green aromas. My first impression was cough syrup. Finish : long, creamy, minty and again linseed oil. With water : gets creamier, sweeter, greener, but the linseed oil impression remains. Points : 84
