La distillerie Invergordon occupe un site quatre-vingts hectares sur la rive nord de l’estuaire de Cromarty dans le nord-est des Highlands, entouré de quelques-uns des meilleures terres cultivables en Ecosse.
Elle appartenait à Invergordon Distillers Ltd qui allait faire partie du groupe Whyte & MacKay quelques années plus tard.
Invergordon a produit son premier whisky en 1961, avec un seul alambique de type Coffey. Deux nouveaux alambiques ont été ajoutés en 1963 et un quatrième fut construit pour la production d’alcool neutre en 1978.
La production annuelle de la distillerie est de l’ordre de 40 millions de litres par an.
The Bottler : Vintage Malt Whisky Co – Cooper’s Choice
VMW also owns and operates a sister company called The Highlands & Islands Scotch Whisky Co Ltd.
In addition, we produce a stunning Blended Highland Malt called Glenalmond and a number of other carefully chosen malt brands.
Another highlight of our portfolio is “Coopers Choice” range of carefully selected, exclusive Single Cask Single Malt bottlings from some of the very finest distilleries in Scotland. These are bottled at 46% vol and Cask Strength and are non coloured and non chillfiltered.
With their landscapes, high mountains, abundant lakes and all the islands off the coast, the Highlands are one of the most varied and spectacular regions in Scotland.
Whiskies from the Highlands are generally more sustained and stronger than those from Speyside. They have very varied tastes according to the place of production. Lightly peated and coastal flavours in the north, malty and fruity in the south.
Notes de dégustation
Colour: Yellow gold.
Nose: Notes of malted cereal, dry yellow apple and a light dust of spicy honey. Also some flavours of vanilla and nectarine. First spirity enough, leave the dram airing a while for the nose becomes more sweetish and greedy on the marzipan.
Palate: A malt with honey and spiced apple. A lot of vanilla too. The spices are increasingly present and pungent.
Finish: The finish is medium. Some spices persist. When they begin to calm down a fruity bitterness appears.
Rating: 85/100 with water
(Personal comment: The nose is very promising, but the palate is very, perhaps even too spicy. This spoils the fun. Fortunately there is a magic solution: two or three drops of water in the dram, then stir the glass, and it is much better! The spices reduce and the sweetness of vanilla takes over.).
