    This is an older bottling of Dewar’s White Label, with no mention of contents or ABV on the label. Yet the print on the back of the label claims it’s from 1975. That’s liquid history in my book, for I was a 5 year old kid when this was bottled.

    While it flirts with OBE on the nose, it is primarily dominated by stewed apples with cinnamon and apricot pastry. A tad peppery, but very accessible.

    The OBE is also the first thing that you’ll notice on the palate. Oh, well… old bottle, open for a long time, more than half empty… it’s to be expected. But that also means the whisky has turned very floral – almost soapy – and thus pretty off key and hard to judge. With some good will I can detect some apples, but now also some mandarin and a bitter touch from the wood.

    In the finish, which is medium long, some late caramel kicks in.

    Hard to jugde because of the OBE. But thanks for the sample, Pat.
