Invergordon 36 yo 1972 (Bladnoch forum)

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * Grain

Apart from their own Lowlands spirit, Bladnoch distillery has a packed warehouse with casks from all over Scotland. They are bottled regularly and sold through the Bladnoch online shop, with a discount for Bladnoch forum members. Most of their bottlings have an unbeatable quality / price ratio!

Invergordon 36yo Bladnoch forumInvergordon is a grain distillery located in the Northern Highlands (it shares its grounds with Ben Wyvis) and is part of the White & MacKay group. This Invergordon is 36 years old, distilled on the 14th of November 1972.

 

Invergordon 36 yo 1972 (41,4%, Bladnoch forum 2009, cask 95390, 184 btl.)

Nose: creamy vanilla with big hints of coconut (as expected). Reminds me of certain rums in that respect. Very sweet with notes of Demerara sugar. White chocolate. Some exotic fruits (pineapple, guava). A bit of sourish oak polish. Less complex than an old malt whisky, but very good as a grain. Mouth: completely in line. Coconut cream, vanilla. Kind of a malibu drink without the stickiness. Rather gentle. Finish: short and light with a very faint hint of perfume.

A typical old Invergordon, very enjoyable albeit a bit too mellow and mono-dimensional. Sold out. Around € 60 at the time.

Score: 82/100
