I mentioned this reviewing the Cambus 1990 MBL; you should not review any old whisky based on a single dram at a festival imho. This Port Dundas absolutely needs at least one hour in your glass! But once again, the combination single grain on a (pretty active) Olorosso (1st?) fill sherry cask is a superb one. This is awesome stuff, I rated this one slightly less at first than the Cambus 1990 MBL, but having a few drams of both this one is just a tad more interesting.
Nose; oily, dark sherry, sweet vanilla, dark sugar, fresh tobacco leaves. Kind of dirty Mortlach style with a single grain twist. Definitly some sulphur (not too much)
Taste; Yes, this is dirty sherry all over the place! Great stuff, lot's of dark fruits, raisins and dark cherry's, fresh tobacco leaves and lots of pepper! Pretty oliy, again, like some Mortlach's got this as well. Imho it's just spot on, not too much. If you're in to sherried whisky's you will love this one.
Finish; very long! Suprising, you don't expect a single grain to have a long finish, but this goes on and on! Again, lot's of oil, sweet with a pretty amount pepper.
Overall great stuff and at prices just over € 80 this should be considered a bang for your buck! I'm not on MBL's payroll, but their first 3 single grains are just spot on! looking forward at The Grainman's next selection!
