Invergordon 27 yo 1988/2015

Invergordon 27 yo 1988/2015

Number 48, Maltbarn
Single grain - North Highlands
51.3% ABV

Nose: Vanilla, bananas, toast, strawberries, marshmallows, hints of honey. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, loosens, slippery, airy. 
Tasting:  Sweet. Toast, strawberries, bananas, black tea, honey, hints of orange peel. 
Finish: Medium. Black tea, fresh cut grass, marshmallows, vanilla. 


Not as sweet as most grains, I think this one has mellowed in the cask. Good grain whisky, and beats any number of single malts for complexity. There's even a alluring toasty note. There's really no substitute for cask aging, and it's a shame that age now equals expensive.


I like this a lot.
