Whisky Reviews for Invergordon 1987 MBl

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.65 points

  1. TomAndIngrid scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A beautiful, complex whiskey, where the flavors harmonize well with each other. It is definitely worth to try this grain whiskey!
    • Nose
      sour (green) apple, straw, malt, vanilla, wood (fruit trees)
    • Taste
      enormous honey sweetness, creamy, beautiful vanilla, milk chocolate, later slightly astringent wood
    • Finish
      Wood sounds discreetly medium in length

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Hmm, very strong and robust, atypical for a grain, but unfortunately not so tasty. One expects a certain sweetness ... I say full of character. Not so mine.
    • Nose
      Fresh, more citrus, apples, very robust and spicy. Over time, some oak, vanilla and typical Grain notes.
    • Taste
      Very spicy in the mouth, strong, almost bitter.
    • Finish
      Adstringierend, holzig, pfeffrig.

  4. Defeatless scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nose: it has to warm up, just that is a bit flat. We have sawdust, that glue smell (considering microwave, but it gets better so we do not), later a fresh acid will come up. But overall it is not overwhelming. After 1.5 ml of water: does not make much difference.

    Taste: Zoooooowhé. You do not smell that coming. Full of sweet, indeed licorice, vanilla, vanilla, vanilla, owhja vanilla and bananas, after 20 seconds, bananas, bananas, bananas. Separate this stuff. With water: Does not make much difference.

    Body: Medium. On the creamy side

    Finish: Medium-long. Bananas, bananas and some wood. With water: not much difference, except that the wood tones go backwards.

    Comment: I found the nose very weak and let me now experience the most with the whiskey. However, the taste does a lot of good. The finish is also a one-dimensional. It is not bad whiskey, but it does not blow me off my chair. The trick is to keep this in your mouth for a minute. Then the whiskey is still the best. I say 83 points.
    And because I have very little experience with grain, I do not make any statements about the origin, except that this is not Woodford.

  5. fgg did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      After 5 min: Glue, some wood tones and underneath a hint of citrus, orange or so. Lightly sweet. After 45 min: More sweetness is released, the glue and wood tones are still there, but vanilla sticks his head.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity. Citrus and some banana.
    • Finish
      Full, oily and creamy. The dram becomes pretty thick on the tongue.

    Well, the smell is very poor, gives little price. The taste is suddenly a bit fuller than you would expect by the smell. And actually that also applies to the finish. It is certainly not watery, partly due to the reasonable Abv.
    Smell and taste is very tasty and promising in itself, but that's all in all.
    • Nose
      first smell impression: Glue and banana!
      After an hour of smelling again, smell now suddenly seems to have leveled off. Glass of handwarm, now the smell is slightly more set up, but remains on the thin side.
      In the beginning it is still some glue and banana, but as I warm up the glass some of the glue air disappears, banana remains emphatically present, now comes vanilla, almond paste, citrus. In the end, the banana and almonds will ultimately be left over in the end.
      Smell is pleasant, but stays light.
    • Taste
      first nip: Banana and gumballs! Tasty, and much more than the smell. initially light pepper but it disappears after a few nips. Then there is also a bit of acid, citrus, and perhaps also orange. And wood tones. And even some coconut seems to come through. Suddenly I now get associations with a specific sunscreen that I once used for a few sunbed sessions, Australian Gold ... Was also a mix of mainly banana and gumballs.
    • Finish
      The finish is initially the sharpest / pepperiest, and banana. After the first nips, the finish seems a bit short, but it will be a bit longer after that. Orange again, and wood tones. In the distance the gumball sweetness sings around a bit.
