Invergordon 36 year old 42.7% Bladnoch Forum Bottle


Invergordon 36 year old 42.7%

Cask 85110

Sumptuous, silky, creamy aromas of pure toffee-oak, beeswax, mature honey, brittle caramel, nuts, peanut oil, all dripping in luscious vanillins and divine spices and a violet top note. Exceptionally clean Bourbon cask with even hints of the light charring evident. The grain just about pokes its head through the oak. This whisky glides over the palate. Soft and silky, opening with the rich, nutty, toffee-oak and mature honey, but balanced by the arrival of the crisp, sharp grains. Lovely intensity and creaminess. Excellent length. A drop of water bring out a coffee note on the nose, whilst on the palate it allows the grassy, citrus, nettle/leaves/grass/Sauvignon-esque character of the spirit to show.

Ok, this may not appeal to everyone in the way that overt sherry cask whisky don’t often appeal, but if you love, sublime, clean, bourbon oaked whiskies then this is your man!
