    A great and singular dram with a slightly disappointing finish. Delightful on the nose.

    This is possibly the same whisky as in DT cask 1329, but since the mini doesn't specify a cask number, I can't be 100% certain.
    • Nose
      On the first whiff I'm already won over: there's an old tin can full of fruit in syrup, with a bit of rust on it, and this beautiful note of old wax and oak. It's quite rare to find this kind of soft, dry waxiness where it stops the wood from smelling dry or harshly tannic. Nutty, and occasionally grassy.
    • Taste
      Despite the 45.9%, it does feel a little sharp on entry. The body is medium weight and juicy, rich and fruity. With water there's some old wood and nuts (walnuts, cashew). Doesn't feel overaged or flat at all, in fact it's quite vibrant and lovely.
    • Finish
      A waxy, fruity finish. It's better with a bit of water but this is the dram's only weak spot apart from the occasional grassy notes: After the impressive nose and delicious taste, you'd expect the finish to last a while, and it does, but it is a bit hollow, which is surprising for something this old. It's as if the waxiness is clogging up my tastebuds.
