Clan Denny Invergordon 1966 Review

Invergordon 1966 Clan Denny Tasted as part of a Tweet Tasting organised by Steve Rush (@thewhiskywire) of The Whisky Wire in conjunction with Arkwrights and all the whiskies tasted were grain whiskies.

The old man of the tasting this 45 year old, damn thats even a good few years older than me, is one of those whiskies where the genuine use of the word "fantastic" comes into it's own. Grain whiskies really do get better with age and this old fella of an Invergordon is one that really is worth seeking.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Sweet freshly cut apples and gentle caramel sauce, a local supermarket used to do an apple pie that was covered in caramel instead of a top layer of pastry and this reminds me of that, there's dough like notes along with sweet apples, caramel and some demerera sugar. A nose that makes you go NOM.

Palate

Super smooth with a cereal like taste that reminds me of milky weetabix, then there's a hint of a very milky Latte coffee and then the caramel and touches of apple come back.

Finish

The milky latte coffee and caramel keep this whisky going.
