Insider knowledge: Invergordon 25 Year Old 1988 (cask 8997) (Berry Bros. & Rudd) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Invergordon 25 Year Old 1988 (cask 8997) (Berry Bros. & Rudd) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
This is a belter, at 24 years old still tastes fresh, vibrant and lively.
N: Cut Grass, under-ripe pears, black jacks and Riesling
Water Brings out menthol notes with soft oak, custard and creme brulee.
P: The nose continues with grain based creaminess.
F: A sweet taste of candyfloss as the finish tapers.
Good grain is worth the wait and the price. One to try!
