Invergordon 1988/2015 ‘The Nose Art’ (47.4%, Whisky-Doris, bourbon hogshead, cask #8096, 141 bottles) We’ve had some good Invergordon. As for the label, not sure about which one I like best, the Cally’s or this sexier one… Colour: pale gold. Nose: yeah, I had thought Invergordon would be fatter. In this case that means more white chocolate, custard, fudge, millionaire shortbread, vanilla cake, kugelhopf… And all that. Perhaps even croissants bought around 6am in Paris, according to the label… Mouth: the oak roars a bit, but there’s a funny feeling of Chinese dim-sum, with all these superb sauces they have, then roasted nuts and stout beer. A lot of chocolate as well, malt extracts (I know that’s surprising), and perhaps a little strong chestnut honey. I’m a sucker for chestnut honey, if you’ve never tried that, please do. Finish: long, and even more Chinese. Chocolate and this stunning sauce they serve with Peking duck, made with plums and I don’t-know-what-else. Only the aftertaste is a little more problematic, with some gingery oak that’s a little too much for me. Comments: certainly one of the better grain whiskies. Very well selected, Whisky-Doris! A little less sure about the label, but indeed we all need more fun in our lives.SGP:650 - 86 points.
