Whisky Reviews for Caledonian 1965 HH

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.67 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Although this Caledonian is 40 years old, this grain whisky is still as fresh, sweet and livey as it can get.
    • Nose
      Wow, this nose starts so good. Lots of butterscotch. Beeswax, vanilla and toffee. Stewed fruit meets fresh pencil shavings and sawdust. Old furniture. Pine at the end.
    • Taste
      Creamy. Sappy oak. Bananas and coconut. Coca cola. Quite a lot of rum notes as well (that makes rum-cola:-)). Later on more on dark chocolate and espresso coffee. But it's all very smooth and with a juicy touch.
    • Finish
      Quite long. Turkish delight. Glace cherries. Cinnamon and a little nutmeg. Mint at the end. Well balanced.

    Great to taste an old grain line this, and I think this has aged well in the cask.

    Worth trying, and tastes much younger than its years but not what you would call a stand out dram or anything
    • Nose
      Vanilla, white wine, pineapple, pear
    • Taste
      Creamy, fizzy and then some bitterness. The vanilla is there, custard creams, faint roasted coffee
    • Finish
      Medium and slightly bitter
