Invergordon – Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)

13 February 2013 Written by:

Invergordon Batch 1Yet another Boutique-y release, but this time it’s no single malt, but single GRAIN. yes, grain whisky, the stuff most whisky snobs would never care to drink since it’s “the cheap stuff they put into blends” or some other nonsense. If you are a whisky lover, you know better than that, and we have tasted some lovely single Grains in the past (for example the lovely Hedomism and more). As you can see Grain can be lovely, and when you find a good bottling of that, they are usually not very expensive, and yummy. That said, this one is also a lovely specimen. Starting with the lovely label which depicts the Coffey still (with some humour , as always). 252 bottles, under 60 quid, it’s a good deal.

Invergordon – Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company) , 41.6%Invergodron_111 , £59

Nose: As  one can expect this is very sweet and quite thick and syrupy. Lots of Spices ,Vanilla and wood. I’m getting some butterscotch and leather with some apples.

Palate: Sweet rich juices. Pepper. Thick as syrup : quite chewable and viscous. Add a pinch of nutmeg some  sultanas &  Chocolate and you are done. the good stuff.

Finish: Spicy sweet and long with toffee. superb stuff.

Score: 88/100
