Whisky Reviews for Invergordon 1984 BA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.55 points

  1. recursiewhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A very nice Single Grain that is surprisingly savory and has some strong malty tones in it that I didn’t expect in a Single Grain. So yes, this is, yet again, an idiosyncratic whisky from the Blackadder house. This one needs quite some aeration time and warming to fully open-up. Adding water brings out the sweeter candy and fruity aromas and on the palate accentuates some spicy and bitter tones. So me careful with your H2O.
    All in all a lovely and idiosyncratic Invergordon.
    • Nose
      A rich, full, spicy and intense whisky with aromas of hay, grass, grains, old books, rich oak, caramel, toffee, vanilla, Manuka honey, dried flowers, overripe apples, beeswax, new leather, sweet tobacco, pledge spray, mocha, old tea, ginger, cinnamon, Chinese 5 spice mix, subtle tones of smoked ham, a surprising tone of malt, bayleaf, boiled sweets allspice and antique oak.
    • Taste
      An intense full, rich and spicy whisky with aromas of chili, black pepper, spicy oak, old books, cardboard, damp cellar, antique polish, a hint of brine, bayleaf, licorice, a hint of solvents, smoked ham, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, grass, butter, tannins, marzipan, walnut peals, boiled sweets, berries, apple sauce, acacia honey, vanilla and more spicy oak.
    • Finish
      A long and slightly drying finish with aromas of chili, metallic tones, mocha, honey, tannins, almond, backing spices, fresh fruits, boiled milk and creamy yet spicy oak.
