Nose: Caramel greets the nose initially followed by sweet spice and vanilla, then slowly a leathery character emerges with hints of old Cognac.
Palate: The palate is butterscotch sweet with a syrupy mouth-feel, behind this there are notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and ground ginger.
Finish: The finish is long and lingering with notes of toffee and grapes, then there is a hint of citrus zest and raisins which breathes new life into this extraordinary finish.
Overall: Whisky doesn't need to be old to be great, but that's not to say it can't be! This Invergordon is as complex as it is sweet and smooth. Furthermore it's great value for a whisky of this age, simply superb!
