Invergordon, single grain (Clan Denny) 46-year-old (Scotland)
At their best, old single grain whiskies can be at least the equivalent of high-class single malts, and this 46-year-old Invergordon offering from Douglas Laing’s Clan Denny range, distilled in 1966, is one of the most outstanding we have come across to date. It also offers excellent value for money – just think what most distillers/bottlers would charge for a single malt of the same age, regardless of its quality! Spicy milk chocolate and lemon aromas, big, buttery coconut, and finally vanilla and caramel on the nose. Fat and rounded in the mouth, creamy, with bitter orange and more vanilla and milk chocolate. Quite long and warming in the finish, with citrus fruit and nutmeg. Pleasingly complex. 44.2% ABV, 70cl, £140.00, specialist whisky merchants.
