  3. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    1950's springcap. Tasted at Old and Rare 2020 in London. Damp, musty, sweet. Not bad at all. Would love to get a bottle of this at some point.

    http://www.kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=283 Color: straw yellow Nose: Sweet floral aromas rise in the glass. Add honey, wet paper, some leather and a few drops of lemon. Vanilla and clover scent but also cotton candy and a hint of caramel - you almost always look for the fruit component. Taste: But quite voluminous and full of flavor. Very sweet and yet at the same time pervaded with dry, tart herbs. Honey, vanilla, caramel and incipient green wood notes - as well as in the nose, without fruit. Finish: Long! - herbs, leather, wood and honey sweetness. Mostly with the taste notes fading out here. Remark: Anytime again - an every day dram! 86 points N: 86P / G: 87P / F: 86P

    My rate is for the Bakelit-cap version from the 1960s (post springcap / pre-screwcap).
