- Tasted from a mini, but I have a full bottle closed. The time I'll open I will rate it it 100 out of 100. Happy new year.
- This improves with time, in fact it is improving by some margin.
- Nice enough and worth buying at auction but I have seen these go for £150, not sure if that is value but for the right price it is worth a punt.
That is very different to most blends or malts its like 2 different profiles at once, one is fruity like peach, mango & pineapple and then there is and industrial , metallic like smell that is actually quite nice and lances the sweet notes. I also detect that old , faint, paraffin, chemically smell like garage rags, I really like the nose.
The metallic notes are on the palate with some bitter yellow plum, a little peach and some dry wafer notes. After a while the palate thins out a bit and there is some sweet spice which gives it a little kick
Medium and there is a lingering bitter/sweet taste that fades slowly
thrill to have a wee taste of old bottling like this. Open up with
fresh and bright citrus lemon, fresh basil and rusty irons. Some musky
wood and mushrooms aroma lurking, which carry on to the palate, balance
with fresh citrus. Pleasant and fresh throughout. Short on the exit and
light on body, but this is a really fresh old dram.

- Blended malt, distilled in the 1960's. Interesting old-skool flavour.
Start malty with some cereal mash. Heather. Flowery notes. Yellow apples and melon. Also smoke at the background.
Quite salty and minty. Lemon. Artichokes. Metalic notes. Green tea. A little peat as well.
Medium long. Pepper and nutmeg. Spearmint.
- Rumoured to be a blend of, Mortlach, Glenlossie, Aultmore and Glentauchers.
