This is a sister cask of the Whiskybase bottling and a couple of Whiskybroker casks.
Invergordon 43 yo 1972
(49,8%, Whisky Nerds 2016, bourbon barrel #13-05, 102 btl.)
Nose: starts surprisingly bourbon-like., with a focus on the wood and wood glue, before it moves towards the more classic vanilla and creamy coconut. Very warm and rounded. Buttercups. Marshmallows. Hints of mint and banana skin. Candied ginger before it returns to saw dust.
Mouth: very sweet and rich, with corn syrup, coconut and vanilla cake. Lots of fruity notes (peaches in syrup, orange candy and mashed banana) but also lots of (round) bourbonny / wheaty spice influence. Gets drier, on chocolate and pepper.
This is a very fruity, creamy grain whisky with relatively few oaky (as in plankish) notes. Given the syrupy profile, it’s perfect for people with a sweet tooth. Around € 165, available in Dutch stores.
