    I uncorked this bottle about 2 weeks ago and wrote down the following Spartan impressions: "Slightly musty and rotten in the nose, the sweetness of the Grain comes out timidly in the taste." Initially, the alcohol is perfectly integrated, in the second moment voluminous and powerful to taste. " At today's tasting I found an extreme sulfur note in the form of muff and moder for me which in my opinion was not so extreme immediately after uncorking. By and large, this grain is more of the darker kind, I miss in this bottling the "Grainsüße" and the fruity components. Today I am a little disappointed, let's see how the matter with the sulfur develops in the near future ...

    • Nose
      Oily "legs" stick to the glass wall of my premium sniffer, earthy, a combination of musty mildew and sweetness comes to light. The nose is initially extremely musty and musty, earth tones dominate while sulfur is slowly rising. Wet leather and abrasion of dried orange peel ends in sulfurized raisins and dried fruits, with a slightly malty note in the background. From time to time, the typical Grainsweet flashing through the dark and decayed notes, vanilla and a hint of Vollmichschokolade penetrates the dull earth tones. Again and again the flavors change, at the moment there are minimal controversial glue notes and caramel ...
    • Taste
      At the first sip the voluminous high alcohol content unfolds in combination with dark earth tones and musty sulfur on the tongue. Chubby warmth floods the palate, from wood sharpness dissolve white pepper and a pinch of salt. Tart wood tones stick to the palate, dark and old walnuts are added, espresso and dark dark chocolate emit their slightly bitter and astringent aroma. Dark orange and apricot flavors are in the background, on the tip of the tongue slowly develop fresh menthol and hints of citrus fruits. Unripe grapefruit stick on the palate before slowly show again sweet and malty components. More and more sweetness, vanilla, caramel, malt and dried berries and grapes come into their own. With a wonderfully intense walnut flavor, the Invergordon gradually transpires.
    • Finish
      Chubby warm, the dark fruit and woody notes rest long on the palate, the malty and earthy notes return, unfortunately, the musty sulfur flavor. With caramel, milk chocolate and slightly tart fruity aromas, the aftertaste sounds like a felt eternity.

  2. Ostfriese scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    I like it a lot for a grain. He is strong with intense aromas. A little water does not hurt him and he opens a little more.
    • Nose
      Sweet and elegant. First is Old leather in the foreground, followed by vanilla, malt, oranges and creme brulee. It is followed by earthy notes and the appearance of light smoke. In the background is a very fine adhesive note that fits wonderfully into the flavors and barely noticeable.
    • Taste
      A good start, creamy and earthy. This is followed by oranges, cocoa and roasted aromas. Latte coffee and hints of tobacco. The conclusion is a pleasant spiciness and echoes of oak.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. The oranges and vanilla are present again while still leaving a creamy mouthfeel. In the background, the milk coffee and creme brulee are again noticeable.

  3. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I had no desire for real notes.

    I do not like it that much. Pretty closed and dull.

    Cereals, citrus fruits, mineral notes paired with oak and surprisingly also some smoke.

    Overall, nothing I need again.
