    This is what the bottle looks like


    There are not many 1960`s blends at 100 proof so I was eager to try this one.
    Profile wise it reminds me of 1940`s-50`s White Horse but with more going on.
    A great surprise, if I see a bottle I will be buying it.
    In blend language this is out the top draw,
    Unfortunately I have never seen this particular bottle on an auction.
    • Nose
      88 88
      There is a slightly musty (in a good way) interplay of flavours on the nose, some OBE for sure.
      White fruits, a little honey, a little oak, hints of lemon and grapefruit with some wafer thrown in.
      This seems to grow in the glass, white chocolate emerges after a few minutes with hints of menthol.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Creamy, full fat and powerful with some salty peat at first and the initial mouthfeel is one of quality, great.
      The cream keeps growing on cake, biscuit but the peat also increases and it has a load of white pepper in the mix with a nice icing sugar edge.
      Fruit wise there a little pineapple, , lemon and some limoncello.
      This is crisp, fruity, sharp peat but what is so impressive is the balance, real quality.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long, fruity, peaty finish that stays fresh to then.

      With a water the nose is more distant, as if the edge has gone and the palate has lost its peat. white pepper edge but it is even sweeter
      I think this is better neat.
