Whisky Reviews for Invergordon 1994 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.00 points

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur


    The grain distillery Invergordon was built in 1959 and thus relatively young. She is owned by Whyte & Mackay and rarely offers official releases. It can be easily found with independents, though, such as this 21 Year Old from 1994, bottled by Douglas Laing.

    The nose starts quite classical on wood glue and vanilla, but after a few minutes of airing some fruit kicks in in the guise of coconut and banana with some Brésilienne nuts. A dried apricot also appears.

    The arrival is sturdy and spicy. Loads of wood spices indeed: pepper, ginger, nutmeg. This precedes a rather grand sweetness which is not so much fruity as it is candy-like. I am not surprised that bourbon comes to mind, but this is more fresh and more playful. Some citrus appears. Sugared lime rind. Quite nice. And then all of a sudden some white chocolate appears. Where did that come from?

    The finish is medium to long, with a spicy sweetness at the death.

    Nice, playful and fresh single grain.

    • Nose
      84 84
      Wood polish, candied apple, coconut husk shavings, nectarines - somewhat comparable to peaches and apricots as markjedi1 mentioned.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Soft, spicy with a tang and rather well balanced. Picture a spring condition with some sun and a light breeze. Lime and mint mixed with a sprite minus the fizz. Cinnamon like flavor appears, spicy and warm.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium to long, spicy all round with a nutty aftertaste.
