Whisky Reviews for Old Taylor NAS

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.75 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    This dusty Old Taylor was bottled for the Italian market on 86 proof. 

    According to the figure at the right-below of the bottom of the bottle, this should have been bottled around 1973. This means that the Old Taylor's distillate of this bottle most likely is distilled at National Distiller's famous “Castle” distillery (DSP-KY-19) in Frankfort which just closed in 1972.
    • Nose
      Old skool bourbon nose with lots of maple syrup, molasses and brown sugar. The nose of this Old Taylor has got more complexity than an average bourbon though. Gentle polished oak intermingled with dried dates and honey. Hints of stawberries at the background.
    • Taste
      I got pecan pie and raisin bread tightly combined with rye spices. Vanilla cake mix. Fresh cedar wood as well. Later on some light tobacco leaf. Very complex and multi-layered bourbon.
    • Finish
      Quite long. Demerara sweetness. Cinnamon and some nutmeg.
