- An excellent value for money whiskey. A superb nose. a must have for this price.
Thank you whiskeybroker
Fine grain, marked however by age, with lots of fresh and exotic fruits (passion, pineapple), like an old single malt although less present. These notes are erased with aeration.
The grain is characteristic: very sweet, vanilla, lots of wood with a touch of varnish, almond cake, coconut, a little cinnamon.
Very easy, delicious palate but very well combined. Slightly thick texture. Lots of coconut, vanilla, caramel, a little tatin apple, molasses, a little pepper. The exotic fruit is more discreet.
Final more interesting, more exotic from the start (lychee, passion, pineapple) than grain. Really a plus.
Always vanilla and coconut, but which come next and spread for a long time. Some spices.
- A great grain, but of his adhesive note never completely comes off.
First comes a vanilla adhesive note, which breathes away safely, later, the whole thing has turned into strawberry cream, Orangentorte, dry wall unit, but at the same time also notes of fresh wood, still a lot of vanilla, but the freshness of the grain is still through
Creamy, vanilla, orange cream, more creamy strawberries, slightly dry oak, lots of heat
The whole mouth is full of vanilla oak, nice warming and creamy, long finish, back out again a slight touch of glue
- Tasted at the Henri Loves the 70's-tasting WCY
- Tasted this old grain next to its little brother (cask: 1300000024, WB 87114), together with Falnor.
Nose: red fruits, bread, some wet wood and glue-ish. some vague hint of mackerel.
Taste: wood, fruits, full and quite complex, somewhat smooth. Fragrances of menthol, cinnamon, mocha and boeuf bourguignon. Tasty!!
Finish: long and smooth, some eucalyptus shows itself
Overall: both bottles are very similar (0034 - 52,2% and 0024 - 52.3%), however, when comparing to its brother i slightly prefer its brother (0024), that one shows just a little bit more character where this one is just a tad more smooth.
- It's not a bad single grain, but the smell and taste of glue gets me every time. Not my thing.
Pine tree, candied orange, moss, glue, raspberry and vanilla. With water it gives an impression of fibre board, but also caramel.
Orange-flavoured Turkish delight, coconut, oak, tonic and caramel.
Toffee, cherry, banana and vanilla.
- Another very nice Invergordon of the 70s. Opened my bottle yesterday and compared it to the Creative Whisky C 1973 Invergordon. I found both bottlings quite similar, both on high level. Dignity, nice integrated wood, sweetness from the grain. Love this stuff, these bottles are priced very decently (thanks to Martin Armstrong!) and a low GBP, thanks to those Brexiters. Grab one or 2 while still available if you are also into old grains.
