Invergordon Burns Malt Octaves

Posted by Alastair in New Products

We're delighted to reveal the first new bottlings for 2014 of our exclusive Burns Malt range of single cask Scotch whiskey. A first for Robbie, coming from small Octave casks made from Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherried oak. Each cask holds 50-litres which yields only 79 bottles.

A huge sherry dram! The sweet Oloroso sherry has imparted a very dark nutty colour to the Scotch. The result, as you can see, is a very rich, sweet grain whisky brimming with treakle raisin flavours.

Nose: Huge sherry! dark roast coffee, stewed plums, dark chocolate coasted raisins, dired fruits and more sherry!

Palate: With water, hot and spicy, massive mouth-coating of sweet sherry, raisins, coffee, chocolate with a warming dry finish.

Sweet, but altogether a different Scotch, the Pedro Ximenez oak deliveres coffee, chocolate and a rounder, jucier finish.

Nose: Sweet sherry, oak, plums, dried fruits, burnt caramel, walnut whip, rose perfume, mocha coffee and juicy sultanas.

Palate: with water huge mouth-feel, sultanas stewed in sherry, milk chocolate, mocha coffee with a long and rewarding sweet sherry finish.
