Whisky Reviews for Invergordon 1972 AdF

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.88 points

  1. Dirk scored this whisky 89 points Super Administrator

    I think the nose it the least impressive part of this Invergordon. I am not a big fan of grain whiskies but this is a very good one. Hard to find all the different flavours in this one.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, caramel, fruity, ginger and cloves. Bit of a typical grainy aspect. Strawberries and some kind of raspberry marmalade. Water does not help here.
    • Taste
      This is so much better then the nose! Nice on strawberries, raspberries and darker fruits mixed with a spoon of honey. Concentrated red fruits.
    • Finish
      Finish with a lot of fruity notes but mainly strawberries and raspberries. Some coconut and banana, add a bit of honey and caramel to complete it all.

  2. rottendon scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Overall, very tasty and round, but a bit unspectacular. Solid old grain.
    • Nose
      For a grain quite fruity nose, a lot of caramel and a little vanilla. Only very little glue and vegetables. Warm slightly more mixed pickles, pickled beetroot. Floral overtones.
    • Taste
      Very powerful start, oak straight ahead, paired with very sweet, almost sugary honey. Fruit notes are only hinted at.
    • Finish
      A good medium-long finish, gentle and even fading of sweetness and tannins. A memory of the sweetness remains much longer.
