Single Cask, Single Grain
Highland Scotch Whisky
DESCRIPTION
A rare single cask Scotch whisky from Scotland's most northerly grain distillery, Invergordon, matured in oak for 50 years - from 1966 to 2016.


This particular cask was selected by the Glasgow whisky specialist, Douglas Laing & Co., who bottled this very old whisky under their 'Xtra Old Particular' (XOP) brand - which is reserved for only the most premium and rare whisky stocks.


Despite being a massive distillery, virtually the entire production from the distillery is used as a constituent part in blended whiskies, making Invergordon quite rare as a single grain whisky.


The original hogshead cask yielded just 261 full sized bottles and was bottled naturally straight from the barrel.

 

OFFICIAL TASTING NOTES
Nose: Reminiscent of a Dunnage warehouse, then soft autumnal fruit with cereal.
Palate: An abundance of fruit with candy, gentle sugary spices and light oak.
Finish: More candy & barley sugar, plus soft warming spices.

ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
The Invergordon Distillery is the Scotland's sole grain distillery situated in the Highland Region and, as the name implies, it is located in the northern town of invergordon.

The distillery occupies a large site (80 acres) alongside the Cromarty Firth and was commissioned in 1959 following the departure of the Royal Navy which operated a large base in the town.

Nowadays the harbour (one of the deepest in Europe) is used by visiting cruise ships and for support vessels in the oil trade.
