- A few interesting "moments" on the nose (vanilla and bourbon oak), but the taste is overwhelmed by chemical and soapy elements. That destroys any balance...

Dumbarton 29 yo 1961/1990 (46%, Signatory, casks #10277-10280, 1300 bottles) The Dumbarton grain distillery stands on the Clyde, near Glasgow. It was producing not far from 100 million litres of whisky per annum and used to be blended mostly into Ballantine’s. The distillery was mothballed in 2002. Colour: gold. Nose: silent at first nosing, getting just a little grassy, bubblegummy and vanilled when sniffing hard but that’s all. Okay, maybe a little dust as well. Strange. Mouth: aaaaarghhh! Who did pour cologne into this sample bottle??? Extremely chemical and totally undrinkable. Unless you really need to punish yourself, that is. A true collector’s item, not to be opened. 10 points.
