[November, 2017]  Oh, no one tasted this so far - that makes it even more interesting...

The colour is amber and the texture shows early medium legs and late fat tears.  The nose is of a typical old grain profile that you either like or not.  It is very complex on heavy woods (53 years in cask), spices, floral and fruity aromas.  The rum notes are rather shy but after a while they show up and offer additional vanilla aromas that grow stronger minute by minute and nicely contain the wooden notes.  Not too bad for my tastes.  It arrives a little hot (peppery) in the mouth but is nicely coating.  Interestingly, the tannins are not that strong as I expected from the nose (what is good).  The taste is typically grainy, too with more dominant rum flavours (vanilla, demara sugars).  It is not as complex as the nose but still very fine.  The finish is long and even more rum-ish with bolder wooden flavours (tannins) that are not adstringent at all.  Water is not needed.

A decent old grain that stood the test of time with dignity.  Grain lovers will adore it, for sure.  But it is worth a try for all others, too.
