Invergordon 25 Year Old Berry's Own Highland single grain Scotch whiskey. Single ex-bourbon barrel #8997 bottled 2013 by Berry Bros & Rudd.
The nose gives toasted oak, apple and melon skins with an upllifting menthol note. There is some honeyed depth and cinnamon spice. Teh palate is beautifully expansive with bourbon cask notes, buttery vanilla and cream caramel. The delivery is almost angelic and long lingering.
Invergordon Distillery was established by Invergordon Distillers Ltd in 1959 at Invergordon on the Cromarty Firth in Scotland’s Highland whisky region. Invergordon opened in 1961 and supports The Invergordon Distillery Pipe Band. A single Coffey Still was increased to three in 1963 and an additional and much larger column still was introduced in 1978 in order to produce neutral spirit. Ben Wyvis malt distillery was built in its grounds in 1965 although it closed in 1976 and was demolished in 1977.
