    With the official miniature set the 4th bottle is just labeled as Plain British Spirit Period 90/2 and 61.5% abv: It is very sweet and malty and a bit peaty/smoky. Actually not that bad but it seems it has never been in any cask thus it is really plain spirit. Pretty interesting how it tastes before it's going into the casks.

    Actually the best of the three sister casks 1966 441, 1966 442 and this despite it has actually the lowest abv. Low is probably not the right term as it is much more powerful than expected. Just a fantastic whisky!
    • Nose
      Fresh and intensive, rich oak wood with plenty of fruits including oranges, apricots, plums, pineapples, bananas. Notes of raisins, toffee, dark chocolate, coffee, sweet vanilla, honey, marzipan.
    • Taste
      Wow, the initial punch blows me away. Just quickly after there are coming up lots of different aromas that are well balanced. Sweet sherry wood, toffee, a bit citrusy and lemony, meaty and ham, coffee and dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long burning but smooth with this great balance between sweetness and oaky notes. With water even more sweetness and oaky notes come up.
