    Serge from Whiskyfun says:Dumbarton 32 yo 1962/1994 (49.9%, Cadenhead) Colour: pale amber. Nose: ah, this is even more complex it seems. It starts right on bananas (truckloads) mixed with cereals and vanilla. Bold notes of nougat, light honey, pollen… And then we have almost the same incense/sandalwood notes as in the Invergordon. Really superb, developing on ‘rhum arrangé à la banane’ (rum soaked bananas in fact). Also hints of cologne but nothing offending. But I think the old grains’ strong point isn’t really their noses but their palates so let’s see how this one tastes… Mouth: oh, it’s just fantastic! Pure banana juice at first sip but then it does the peacock’s tail with lots of high-end rum, sugared avocado juice, fresh pineapple (pina colada, eh) and lots of spices such as white pepper and nutmeg. And what a fine oaky structure, with just a slight sourness that keeps it playful. Amazingly good, really. Long finish, quite peppery, with loads of bananas again and just a small pinch of salt (probably from the cask). A winning single grain! 91 points.
