  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Part 1 of 4 I'm not that into grain whiskies but i have to admit this is pretty nice. I expected this one a little more agressive and sharp since it's just 10yo but it turned out to be friendly, easy drinkable and fresh. I do think in general this one is a little one sided and quite a typical/standard grain profile. Not much surprising in my opinion. but that is to be expected with such a young grain whisky. I can imagine this would be nice when paired with a light fish dish. A shrimp cocktail or something.

    It's the starter whisky in a small grain tasting:

    Part 2 of 4 Invergordon 1988 cwc 46.3% 26yo,
    Part 3 of 4 Cadenheads creations 26yo light creamy vanilla
    Part 4 of 4 North British 26yo 50.6% whiskybroker
    • Nose
      After 30-45 minutes of oxidation in the glass:
      Without water it's sweet, very sweet. Light. Vanilla, Macaroons on the first nose. There is still that hint of glue but not a lot. it's gentle on the nose.
      With water it gets a little heavier on the nose. More fruitiness comes through.
    • Taste
      Without water: Light bodied, sweet and watery, loads of vanilla and light fruits. Soft edges. Almonds, slight bitter note. Lemons and i think a hint of orange peel or something.
      With water it is getting less watery and gets more creamy. Still the almonds and some clove.
    • Finish
      Sweet, grainy and woody. It reminds me of autumn. Vanilla and a hint of clove.
      With water there's a little dry nutty note coming up and also some white chocolate
