Invergordon distillery was established by Invergordon Distillers Ltd in 1961 and is the only grain distillery in the Highlands. A second pair of Coffey stills were added in 1963 and in 1978 another larger coffey still was installed.
A slight spirity note, fresh wheat, citrus, breakfast cereals, lemon rind, fresh ginger, ginger in syrup, white pepper, a hint of cloves, cake icing with lemon juice, unripe gooseberries. After a few minutes the spirity note fades, revealing dusty and slightly oaky ones.
A bit alcoholic on the arrival, on the light side with notes of propolis, beeswax, rosewater slightly dusty oak, roasted wheat, hay, column-still rum and sugar-reduced toffee.
The long finish is equally light and goes down rather well. Slightly alcoholic upon swallowing with rum sweetness, cereals, a hint of cloves and a dry oak bitterness. Getting sweeter as time passes.
