    A herbal garden watered down to nothing. Lingering ricola candy like remains.

    Mud
    I found another one of these auldies: the Dewar’s White Label. According to the info on my label, this was bottled in 1971. I was still in diapers. It is still quite a popular blend today, costing a mere 20 EUR.

    The nose is sweet on vanilla, but offers some other interesting notes as well, like heather and some smoke. Woodsmoke? Earth notes and lots of them. Think plant roots and mud (in the good sense of the word). Not earth shattering, but quite pleasant for a summer day (FYI: it’s 36° Celsius today).

    The arrival is very light, but not watery. The first thing I notice is OBE. Almost as if poured from a tin can. But luckily that does not linger long and gets replace by a lot of citrus fruit. Lemon, mandarin and some pomelo. Nicely seasoned as well, on ginger, vanilla and some green garden herbs. Summery.

    While you cannot call the finish long, it does linger a while on citrus and ginger.

    A summery little dram that probably works well in a cocktail. Not sure if today’s whisky is similar but if it is, than you do get bang for your money.
