I’m back at the Justerini & Brooks stand where 'The Last Drop' is enjoying an old blend. I have a good natter with Colin Dunn who points out the quality/value ratio at his stand. He isn’t wrong. I spontaneously plumb for a Rare Malts Coleburn at only £7. The problem with improvising, however, is I end up trying things I’ve already tried. Oh well!
C: I’m talking too much to take sufficient notes. I did observe that there were bumpy patches en-route that held this whisky back from reaching top tier marks, but it’s very decent malt with that desirable & recognisable O&R air about it. A chalky > metallic=blend-like finish. Scores 87 points – the same score as last time as it turns out [WLP87], from a sample I purchased at the first Old & Rare Show in Glasgow in 2017.
