Whisky Reviews for Old Angus 08-year-old

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.60 points

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Probably bottled in the 1930's. 8 yo, 86 proof, 4/5 quart. Imported by National Distillers Products Corp, New York, NY.

    There's also a similar label with no age statement, presumably for the European market. That scored a 92 points on Whiskyfun, for those interested. Likely released in the 1930's also.

      Quite musty, the kind you get in very, very old bottlings. Bingo! Very dusty. I smell dusty, old clothes you haven't worn for decades. Old books, old posters, old magazines. Some nuts -- definitely some chestnuts, maybe pecans also. A bit of nonspecific syrupy sweetness. Very herbal, with old bitter roots and dried leaves. Oh yea, there's some peat here.

      I have a Black and White bottled in the 1930's opened, and this is along the same continuum (the B&W probably fresher, more pungent, and peatier). The mustiness predominates again. OBE? Not fruity, but there is some sweetness, just as in the nose. Some Pei Pa Koa, which is some Chinese herbal syrup remedy for cough and sore throat.

      A bit weak. 43% to start with, so this has probably dipped to around 40% over the 80 some odd years it's in the bottle. Dry and dusty ending, fittingly.

      This was from a sample from a bottle split. The level of the bottle was at the bottom of the shoulder.
