  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    weak-breasted, sweet and a little artificial (plastic). Drinkable, but my weakest grain so far

    Invergordon, 40yo, 1965/2006, 50.3% ABV, WID: 9478 https://www.whiskybase.com/.../whisky/9478/invergordon-1965-dt #WagnerAlexTastingNotes Presence: bright copper; big window, slow tears Aroma: Alcohol stings in the nose and that actually deters first. It is followed by very welcome notes that are sweet and fruity. Overall, the singing Grain but a bit dull. Not really nice. Hey, a whiskey from the 60s! Where is the enthusiasm? I leave the grain a little longer in the glass and there is actually some nougat and brown sugar to the fore - and furniture polish. Oh great ... But there is nothing more here in the next few minutes either. Taste: The alcohol actually comes out first; The second sip is followed by moderately strong sweetness, but also a lot of old, bland wood. Thereafter, the Grain remains rather boring and meaningless. finish: Relatively long finish with slight bitterness and wood. Citrus notes and noticeable spiciness follow. Comment: Age is not everything. In my opinion, a failed whiskey. I would recommend to anyone. Out of respect for the age and history behind the grain, the glass is drunk. A current 08/15 whiskey with a similar profile, I would tilt without hesitation in the spout. Ok, that's drastic now, but life is just too short for bad whiskey! punke: 72/100
