  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The nose could be more generous, but in the mouth, it holds all its promises: vanilla, toffee, fresh and exotic fruits. Average length.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Rum

    Invergordon from the 1970s can be so beautiful. I already found that out with the bottlings from Liquid Art/Beacon Spirits and the XOP from Douglas Laing. This one was bottled by Daily Dram for the tenth anniversary of Belgian importer The Nectar.

    Nice and soft nose on coconut milk, yoghurt with peach and some pencil shavings. Orangettes! Add some mocha, pineapple and mint. And butter. This reminds me more of a good rum than a single grain. Very pleasant nose.

    It is oily (not as creamy as I expected) and very sweet. I get some tropical fruit and orange marmalade. Good spiciness as well on white pepper, nutmeg and cardamom. Slightly bitter oak. Becomes sweeter with the second sip. Again, I feel like I am sipping a rum.

    The finish is wonderfully long and warming.

    Again a top class grain. Well, if you have to cough up between 230 and 250 EUR for a bottle, it had better be.

  5. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    After 43 years in whatever barrel I would have expected much more. Reminiscent of the whiskey whiskey to a soft, well-matured bourbon. But I can already have it for less than 60 euros in the quality class. It just lacks the complexity here.
    • Nose
      very soft and very sweet, light honey, a lot of vanilla and lots of bounty coconut flavor. Behind it only slightly oak flavor. Unfortunately, after a long time in the glass not much behind, that's it in principle. Even a few drops of water change little.
    • Taste
      strong onset, then quickly very sweet, luckily not only sugar, but also vanilla honey. Then clear Bourbonfeeling with quite appealing oak. With a few drops of water, it goes more towards brandy / dry rum. You can not but have one.
    • Finish
      medium long, sweet, spicy

  6. mikespike scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Very nice Invergordon. I find this very similar to the WB70000 which is also a 1972, so no surprise that they are similar. Sweet, vanilla, cocos, absolutely balanced old single grain. Recommended apart from the price, which is significantly higher than the WB and the recent Whiskybroker bottlings.
