WF: Glenury was still doing its own malting until 1968, so maybe this is still from that period.
N: The level is low, and unlike yesterday’s Glenlochy, I’ve a feeling this miniature might not have survived the test of time. I pick up creamy milky coconut-y waxy dusty bakelite parts stored next to paints, pots and solvents in an old garage. It doesn’t get any more romantic than that!
T: With soft [sadly flat] watery prickly beginnings, I get a woody bitter peppery dustiness and sootiness,….. then,….. ,…. and then,….. finally soft yet vivid raspberry and > blackberry fruits – and their pollens – on the front-middle of the palate,…
F: ,.. served with dirty dusty sooty > dry oily < whipped cream. The palate becomes slightly maltier after a while, complimented by a waxy malty chew at the death, but that’s me being ultra optimistic. The bitter oak is there till the end, served with green & black tea and seasoned with ground black pepper, but with this particular example it’s all rather inconsequential. The now-perfumed ever-faint raspberries, however, just keep going and going.
C: [Just about] worth trying for the finish, but not to the point of justifying what I paid for this miniature. Damn!
