Expert Senior Okto-Bull Tasting note

Okto-Bull gave this whisky 91 points
Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Sehr weich mit viel Karamell und Kaffe

Taste

Sehr, sehr cremig. Kein Alkohol vorhanden. Süße Früchte, Karamell und Toffee.

Finish

Tolle Würze. Hier merkt man das Alter. Schön lang und erhaben. Hier macht sich der Alkohol dann in einer Portion Pfeffer bemerkbar.

Comments

Toller Grain. Die Nase ist ein Traum. Lediglich der Abgang könnte einen Ticken weniger pfeffrig sein. Aber das ist Jammern auf hohem Niveau.

Quel fruité au nez ! Crémeux aussi. Ouah ! En bouche, fruité comme un bonbon ! Mais où est le chêne ? Complexe, fondu, intégration parfaite de l'alcool… Génial de bout en bout !

Enthousiasme 5/5

sagara-kun gave this whisky 87 points
Color
Deep copper
Nose
Un nez typique de vieux grain.
Camamel, noix de coco, bois. C'est mielleux et proche du bourbon.
Mais aussi un peu de prune et de pêche. Plutôt discret.
Du clou de girofle très léger. Un peu de colle.
Taste
En bouche, on est à fond sur la noix de coco et la vanille. S'ajoute quelques agrumes, orange sanguine principalement.
C'est huileux, mielleux, sucré. On a de la pâte d'amande au citron. Du caramel toujours.
Finish
La finale est longue sur le caramel, et une touche de fraîcheur mentholée.
Retour du léger clou de girofle. Léger boisé.
Comments

C'est rond et facile d'accès. Très typé grain.

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Doux et intense, fortement marqué par du solvant ( colle, vernis....), mais ce n'est jamais désagréable au demeurant. Beaux arômes de fruits exotiques ( noix de coco surtout ), d'agrumes, d'épices douces, un peu de caramel et une touche de plantes aromatiques. 

Taste

De la douceur, du volume et de la puissance en bouche : fruits exotiques compotés ( encore des noix de coco ), miel cireux, caramel, sirop de maïs, épices ( vanille ), quelques notes végétales aussi. Et toujours ce fonds de vernis, de colle qui perdure.

Finish

Persistante et douce, sur les mêmes fruits exotiques, le caramel à la menthe et une touche boisée.

Comments

Testé en blind.

Color
Deep copper
Nose
Blood orange, raspberry, lemon and caramel.
Taste

Cherry, lemon, raspberry, caramel, yellow raisin and spicy oak. With water more towards grapefruit.

Finish

Raspberry, caramel, yellow raisin, cherry and lime.

Comments

A bit more sour (or you could say fresher) than the Whiskybroker bottlings, especially the nose.

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Très bourboneux et sucré. Du miel boisé, de l'amande caramélisée. Du raisin et de l'abricot sec et confit. Pas mal de vanille comme fil conducteur. Des notes de petites fleurs fruitières se développent en cours de dram.

Taste

Délicate dès la première gorgée, aucune agressivité. Du sirop de caramel au miel. Des petits fruits verts et jaunes secs et confits. Quelques gouttes de citron, et une pincée d'épices douces. Des zestes d'orange boisés par ci par là.

Finish

Moyenne. Les épices montrent le bout de leur nez en picotant la langue. La présence du bois sec se fait aussi plus importante, accompagnant du sirop de raisin blanc et des pelures amères d'abricot.

Comments

Cet Invergordon se laisse agréablement boire, de bout en bout. Gourmand, (très) sucré, onctueux en bouche; et pas agressif pour un sou. Très "grainy" bien évidemment, et faisant aussi penser à un bourbon; il ne peut pas renier ses origines.

Color
Deep copper
Nose

A huge note of Bostik craft glue, filled the room as soon as I poured actually. Acetone. Woody vanilla. The wood is a bit domineering here, but underneath there’s some juicy citrus and tropical fruit. Bit of marzipan. Olive oil. Some aromatic herbal notes like wintergreen and camphor develop after a while. Some dry leaves.

Taste

Rich wood. Acetone. Loads of vanilla. Quite sweet, lots of corn spirit in here. Herbal honey. Marzipan. Peanut brittle. Some more citrus hiding under the wood. Tropical fruit notes are a bit more noticeable now, and they feel kind of…. jammy?

Finish

Long. Marzipan. Vanilla. Dry wood. Peanuts. A little coconut and some of the mint stuff from those chocolate mint thins.

Comments

I must say that all the wood notes of a well aged single malt were present in this, so if you’re the kind of whisky drinker who buys the older stuff to actually drink it, rather than just have on your shelf to show off, older single grains like this would definitely be worth trying.

For me personally these huge, bold wood notes are not my style, but this one was worth trying purely for the intrigue of trying something that has aged for so long. It reminded me of some very old bourbons I’ve tried and probably has a high corn content. It was very rich and a great evening sipper.
