    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.

  5. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Great grain. The nose is a dream. Only the finish could be a tick less peppery. But that is whining at a high level.
    • Nose
      Very soft with a lot of caramel and coffee
    • Taste
      Very, very creamy. No alcohol available. Sweet fruits, caramel and toffee.
    • Finish
      Great spice. Here you can see the age. Nice and long. Here, the alcohol is then noticeable in a portion of pepper.

    What a fruity nose! Creamy too. Wow ! In the mouth, fruity as a candy! But where is the oak? Complex, melted, perfect integration of alcohol ... Great from start to finish!

    Enthusiasm 5/5

  7. sagara-kun scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It's round and easy to access. Very typical grain.
    • Nose
      A typical nose of old grain. Camel, coconut, wood. It's honeyed and close to bourbon. But also a little plum and peach. Rather discreet. Clove very light. A little glue.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it's all about coconut and vanilla. There are some citrus fruits, mainly blood orange. It's oily, honeyed, sweet. We have almond paste with lemon. Caramel always.
    • Finish
      The finish is long on caramel, and a touch of minty freshness. Return of the light clove. Light woody.

    Tested in blind.
    • Nose
      Soft and intense, strongly marked by solvent (glue, varnish ....), but it is never unpleasant for the rest. Fine aromas of exotic fruits (especially coconut), citrus fruits, sweet spices, a little caramel and a touch of aromatic plants.
    • Taste
      Smoothness, volume and power in the mouth: exotic fruit compote (still coconut), waxy honey, caramel, corn syrup, spices (vanilla), some vegetal notes too. And always this fund of varnish, glue that continues.
    • Finish
      Persistent and sweet, on the same exotic fruits, mint caramel and a woody touch.

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

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

  10. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    This Invergordon is pleasantly drinkable, end to end. Gourmand, (very) sweet, unctuous in the mouth; and not aggressive for a penny. Very "grainy" of course, and also reminiscent of a bourbon; he can not deny his origins.
    • Nose
      Very bourbonous and sweet. Woody honey, caramelized almond. Grape and apricot dry and candied. A lot of vanilla as a guideline. Notes of small fruit flowers develop during dram.
    • Taste
      Delicate from the first sip, no aggressiveness. Honey caramel syrup. Green and yellow berries dried and candied. A few drops of lemon, and a pinch of sweet spices. Orange zests wooded here and there.
    • Finish
      Average. Spices show the tip of their nose by tingling their tongue. The presence of dry wood is also greater, accompanying white grape syrup and bitter apricot peels.
