  1. topos scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Skinner auctions stand Old & Rare 2020. Rare chance to try something from the 1910s, because we like to do that kind of thing. Bottle in astonishingly good shape, contents weird but by no means bad - someone thought it was Clynelish blind, hey it could be. From memory, flat lemonade on the nose, pool water and chardonnay on the palate. Sounds awful but it was perfectly drinkable...

    N: Is this liquor liqueur or sugar-flavoured fortified liqueur? This unquestionably tasted of coffee liqueur, and/or much like coffee liqueur-flavoured rum with complimentary walnuts and hazelnuts. Crazy!
    T: Bonkers! Again, we likened this to a soft/flat column still coffee liqueur-flavoured rum.
    F: Aside from the lingering sweetness of the coffee liqueur, it dies on the turn.
    C: A ‘spirit’ that might be appreciated more favourably as a ye olde rum than a blended scotch whisky.

    I see no point in scoring this one.

    Trying to be objective about this when it is roughly 110 years old but in truth it lost some power over the years and felt a little light on the palate.
    Originally had it at 85p but 82p is about fair, not sure what the fill level was like when it was opened but certainly some oxidisation had taken place.
    Still an experience tasting something this old.
