      Medium with some iron and pepper. seems to have often been this machine oil direction earlier, very interesting. aha there is still leather ... the old bottlings are qualitatively a whole league over today ... too bad

    Very complex, round but somehow "dirty part".
    Many today's single malts can not compete with this blend of the good old days.
    Truly a masterpiece ...
    In the nose, the whiskey reminds of a bottle of rum, which has fallen down in a machine shop and has mingled with the lubricants.
    Sulfur, black powder and machine oil paired with smoky undertones are on the tongue.
    OK. I think it's not for everyone. However, I find this old Dimple excellent.
    Especially since today's blends in this league only taste flat, spicy and not very complex ...
