  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    intense, complex, glue, vanilla, peaches, honey, wax, bananas, coconut, marzipan and varnish all stuck in caramel, a little minty on the end
    varnish, sweetness of honey and almond paste, coconut and oil too
    the slightly cooked vanilla appears, the glue cooked too, almost candied, the dry wood, the honey again
    the fruits are on yellow fruits, ripe banana, cooked fruits, poached and a little caramelized, very sweet
    honey and banana return with some dried flowers
    vanilla, candied fruit cream, dry oak, almond paste, caramel, banana and an interesting length.
    bourbon-like feeling.

    ...its a shame that these bottle is offered from member Vermiethai (name is program) for 300 euro in the whiskybase whiskymarket one day after release. It is Invergordon, it is a grain, how stupid... Happy new whiskyworld...

    So I find that rather disappointing. Tastes like much younger grain, it lacks diversity and it is not round.

  8. Rom scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Classic grain nose, sweet, caramelized with a little alcohol felt nevertheless.
    Sweet mouth, coconut, well marked by a caramel taste but in which we still smell a little too much alcohol.
    Medium length finish.
    Good typical grain.

  10. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A brief comparison of the Invergordon 1973/2018 52.3% Mancarella WID: 117891. They are both quite similar to the basic character. The whiskey base Invergordon is a bit more woody and spicy compared to the Mancarella. The Mancarella is more intense and fuller. At the same time creamier and rounder.

    Overall, I like the Mancarella better.
