Whisky Reviews for Invergordon 1972 WhB

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.11 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A little varnish and ether. Then, as expected, big wave of vanilla, coconut, but also pecan. In the mouth we find these sensations, with yet a slight imbalance despite a beautiful texture and richness. Caressing finale. At the second sip, it seems to be a small excess of tannins. Not enough to spoil the party completely though.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Compared it to the Whiskybase bottling and Whiskybroker cask 13...3. This one is the best one of the three, most fragrant and perhaps least grain-like. Close to a 90 score.
    • Nose
      A lot like bourbon. Apple, cherry, raspberry, glue, vanilla and tree resin.
    • Taste
      Raspberry, cherry, caramel, citrus, spicy oak, tangerine and vanilla. Where the nose reminded me of a bourbon, the taste goes a bit towards an old rum. With water it closes down instead of opening up, not really beneficial.
    • Finish
      Cherry, caramel, bramble and tobacco. Yeah I know, this sounds more like a sherry-matured malt than like a grain. It still has that typical grain signature though.
