|ABV||46.6% (Cask Strength)|
|Cask||American Oak, Sherry Finished|
This whisky, laid down only 15 years after the distillery was established, spent a further 45 sleeping in American oak before being transferred to a sherry cask. Invergordon is in the far northeast of Scotland, situated in the eponymous Highland town, a unique location for a grain-producing distillery. Given that it was set up for large-scale whisky production, single grain bottlings are rare and highly sought after.
A sublime explosion of caramel fudge and red berry aromas announce themselves from deep within a pervasive sugariness, before the palate is treated to syrupy honeycomb, liquorice, marzipan and invigorating spices. Then: sweet heavens! An ever evolving, perfectly balanced, oak-infused finish.
You can create a tasty pairing with an array of cheeses, from six-month matured cheddar to a Red Leicester, or enjoy it with honeycomb-infused dark chocolate.
