Whisky Reviews for Invergordon Batch 5 TBWC

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.38 points

  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Very similar to the 42 year Batch 6 and although it lacks the bitterness, the peach is more than perhaps wished for, but still very drinkable.
    • Nose
      quite restrained but somewhat sweeter than the 42 yr TBWC. Not really getting peachy notes
    • Taste
      sweet somewhat peachy
    • Finish
      no bitterness and finish is very pleasant and warming, just short of medium

  2. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior



    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Rich fudge and oak, orange rind and a hint of rosewater.
    Palate: Toffee'd oak furniture, top notch balancing sugars and rich spices too.
    Finish: Lingering oak shines proudly on a thoroughly enjoyable finish.
    Overall: Exactly what you'd hope for from a grain of this age, stunning.



  3. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A dram that will appeal to fans of old grains.
    • Nose
      Little "alcoholic", a very grainy nose on the flour, the bread with some notes of plums behind.
    • Taste
      Always light ... it is consistent with the nose on the grain, cereals, coffee with some light spices and licorice.
    • Finish
      Short on cereals and licorice

  4. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    N: Yep it's grain alright, old grain - praise be.
    T: ….. bitter, woody grain at that. Better with a little water but nothing much happens.
    F: a little thin, old style blend like.
    C: Fair to say this ones a bit tired, but an old grain i could polish off rather effortlessly. Better [old] grains out there, yes but prices are creeping up - this one is set fair.

  5. mikespike scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    My expectation was to find a similar bottling like the recent WB Invergordon, or the Whiskybroker bottlings. And yes, again deep notes of well integrated wood, some sweetness, very well rounded - great stuff. Why were these 1972 Invergordons so good (after resting so many years in the casks)?
