    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Mid gold 

    The panel were surprised at the spiciness of the nose. The initial notes found were pine needles, nectarines and vanilla. The Australian thought it reminded her of “My dad’s 70s cologne”. There was also light wood sap found. An extremely sweet taste of icing sugar, fudge and brazil nuts had the panel nodding in agreement. Cooking apples were found in the aftertaste. Water opens up the dram dramtically - cedar wood, well polished furniture, candlewax and vanilla. More spice was found on the palate with an oily mouthfeel and a fresh menthol finish. From one of only two surviving distilleries in the city of Glasgow.

    Bottled single grains are comparatively rare beasts as a genre, but bottled Port
    Dundas is positively on the endangered list in terms of availability. This
    Diageo facility is one of only two surviving Glasgow distilleries, along with
    Chivas? Strathclyde grain plant, and it produces some 39 million litres of
    spirit per year for blending purposes. This cask from December 1980 somehow
    escaped the blenders? attention and has ended up with the Scotch Malt Whisky
    Society. It offers a highly distinctive, rounded nose of pine nuts, vanilla,
    candle wax and perfume, while the addition of water brings out nuttier notes.
    Sugary sweetness is countered by mild nuttiness on the palate, which is also
    spicy and slightly oily. The finish is long and spicy, with a cooling note of
    mint.
