Tasting Notes

Last year we sold a fifty year old grain whisky for $300 and it sold out in less than twenty-four hours. This time around we've managed to shave twenty dollars of the price tag without reducing the quality or age one bit! The Invergordon 50 is alive and well after five decades with loads of toasted oak, butterscotch, marzipan, and honey flavors that ease over the palate with delicate and lithe profile. Long one of Scotland's stalwarts for grain whisky production, casks of Invergordon are readily available, but few with this level of maturation and depth. Considering the price and the flavor profile, don't expect this one to last long. Only 247 bottles available.

    The Invergordon 50 year is more than just an AGE STATEMENT! This ultra complex Grain whisky shows tons of density and a completely opulent mouth feel. Despite it's age it hasn't gone under 100 proof and packs tons of intensity and fleshy fruit. Powerful nutty and sweet caramel notes paired with the a big sweet vanilla remind me of pecan pie with a scoop of ice cream. The dense honey and dried nuts continue on the palate and despite the intensity and 5 decades in oak, it never feels tired or bitter at all. A totally wild addition to our exquisite portfolio of very well priced, ULTRA aged spirits.

    This is a great gift option for anyone turning 50 in 2016 as we rarely see whisky this age, especially for this price. The Invergordon is rich with plenty of spice from the oak and should please any whisky drinker with its complexity and depth.

    When you see a bottle of 50 year old Scotch for sale and it isn't $5000, the main question most people ask is: is it any good? I'm happy to report that no only is this 50 year old Invergordon delicious, I think it's the best of the annual 50 year old editions we've been doing over the last few years. Last year's cask was $300 and it was fantastic. This one, however, is more complex with the integration of the oak much less dominant. There's still fruit and life inside this whisky. By no means is it past its prime. And it's $20 less that last year's release, as if you needed another reason to grab this!

    Single Barrel Cask Strength at 50 years of age and $279? Oh yes. Wonderfully spicy on the nose and great power - don't wait, it'll be gone soon!
    Top Value!
