This is an independent bottling of a single grain whiskey that was distilled at Invergordon. It was bottled by the Exclusive Malts after being matured in a refill barrel and bottled at cask strength.
Honey, rich toffee. Apples, pears and fresh cut melon. Almost a honey dew note. Light pepper.
Medium mouth feel. No real heat at all. Vanilla, rich toffee, and apple crumble. Heat grows mildly. Melon. Light pepper. Tobacco, rich oak presence. Pear.
Long, mild tobacco. Faint musty character. Good oak structure without being overbearing. Apples, pears, vanilla bean, honey and faint toffee.
This was really nice. I've found a lot of older grain whiskeys to perform really well, and this was no exception. The fruitiness, the tobacco and musty character and the well balanced oak was very nice. I really enjoyed this.
