Invergordon 1972 Private Vintage

Somewhere between the distilleries of Dalmore and Glenmorangie lies a place that yields a Whisky completely different from any kind of a Highland single malt you’ve ever tasted. How is it different you ask? It’s not made from barley. Yep, we’re talking about the grain Whisky from Invergordon distillery
Being a black sheep of its kind, the grain Whisky is an entity of its own that is usually a bit underappreciated… making grain Whisky one of the unsung heroes of the Scotch Whisky realm.
 
The wild trio is here to prove that with Invergordon, counting 43 years. Coffey still distilled, this golden drop delivers such a dramatic and sensual shock that it will put the grains on your must-drink map. Forget about your favourite Speysider for a while... This grain wonder from Invergordon might reshuffle your Whisky priorities.

Appearance
Golden straw.
 
Smell/Nose
From the sweetness of toffee to sugary bites of caramel.
 
Taste/Palate
A spiced rum, spanish brandy or cognac, almost rye-like blast with orchard freshness with toffee, vanilla and some oaky flavour to it. Warm and well rounded.
 
Finish
A prolonged finish of all things sweet, spicy and many things in between.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Invergordon is not a member of the Scotch Whisky Association.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
