Invergordon Batch #1 from That Boutique-y Whisky Company/Master of Malt. Image courtesy Master of Malt. For those who disdain single grain Scotch whiskies, try a dram of this blind and see if you can taste the difference between this and a Highland single malt. There’s no age statement, but it’s been in the cask for a while, judging from the rich color and aroma. The nose is smooth and rich with hints of caramel candy and toffee, allspice, wet leather, and pipe tobacco. The taste is thick and rich with clove, ginger, sweet red wine, and a touch of nutmeg. The finish is long and well-balanced with toffee and soft allspice notes. (July, 2013)
