Long the privileged secret of Master Blenders and canny warehousemen throughout the whisky industry, well-aged Single Grain Scotch Whiskies have in recent years been growing in appreciation and popularity amongst connoisseurs. With a history of producing luxury blended whiskies dating back many years, the Directors of Hunter Laing & Co. understand and appreciate grain whiskies and are pleased to be guarding excellent stockholdings of certain such spirits between 25 and 50 years of age. Hunter Laing’s Sovereign range of single cask single grain whiskies are bottled at cask strength and without chill filtration or artificial colouring. Any one of these rare Sovereign bottlings represents an opportunity to enjoy a whisky experience that is both intense and uncommon.
The Invergordon 21 Year Old has a combination of barley sugar and honey on the nose as well as a hint of lemongrass that intensifies on the palate, which then develops towards toffee and even orange chocolate. Some oak influence on the satisfying finish adds to the overall complexity of this delicate grain whisky.
