  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Feels like its on its way to an oaky, varnished, veteran metamorphosis, but at 24 years its more solvent right now and rather rough on first contact. Given time and a few drops of H20 hover and the candied=vanilla wafers start to appear along with sour=sweet milky cream, [chocolate] cornflake cakes, hessian sacks, old sprouting potatoes, curry leaves, Thai basil, barbed wire!, icing sugar, breaded mushrooms, light ginger cake and potato cakes. A fair to good start.
    T: Initially malty, honeyed and quite raw but developing on more sugary/sour=sweet & buttery vanilla cream and cocao nibs. It then thickens towards an enveloping mouthfeel before turning quite sour. Theres grainy modern oak here and its done well to tame the spirit. Malty=sour into the finish.
    F: Increased sour milky/malty vanillas with grassy, green pine needles and plenty of rich/dark cocoa powder.
    C: The cask having done a good job as the balance is fair. As a result its one of the better Invergordon’s ive had, as most round this age [or less] tend to have been spirit led and arguably bottled prematurely in my opinion. Highlights include the nose [after time & water] and the mouthfeel on development - but the overall result is a struggle with all that sourness. Compared with the Greenore 8 WB, the heavy sour is clearly evident even from the nose - although this 24yo does demonstrates more complexity throughout, albeit at the expense of finesse and refinement. A full bottle i think would be a real struggle.
