    I took a dram out of a bottle which was already emptied for 50%. I still left it in the glass for an hour, before tasting.

      Typical matured, bourbon grain nose. Sweetness of tropical fruits all over. Very nice.
    • Taste
      85 85
      In spite of the fact that I left it in the glass for an hour to breath and after adding 4 drops of water, the taste is quite spicy and even stinging. I had hoped that the sweetness would have continued in the taste; but that is not the case. Better in combination with dark chocolate.

      Medium to long finish. A bit sour and in the far end somewhat watery.

    I expected a lot more for a this Port Dundas being on respectable age. But after over an hour in the glass I have to say it’s really not that complex. It has some foam bananas, vanilla sauce, cinnamon and ginger but that’s basically it. Not impressed.

  4. dramspotter scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Proven to be a staple first drink of the night, setting a baseline for possibly more aggressive drinks to come, it is pleasant without being outstanding.
    • Nose
      the alcohol tends to stings before a great nose comes through but it a pleasant enough nose although quite muted
    • Taste
      more the strength of the alcohol with some sweetness
    • Finish
      an only slight bitter coating; with repetition more of a sharp peachy note

    Colour: a pleasing butterscotch
    Nose: it is a real sweetie on the nose with cinder toffee prominent and a creamy edge that I'd go with a luxurious white chocolate. The Stones with their brown sugar strikes up. Citrus of all things as if someone has tossed a lime cordial into the mix which cuts through the sweetness. Cinnamon follows with your staple grain coconut characteristic plus vanilla and honey.
    Taste: one of those drams where what I nosed actually comes through so the brown sugar, toffee and honey are very evident. Ginger sponge cake and oat cakes with what I'm thinking is a trifle without the alcohol. It goes without saying there's vanilla and a little banana but its all those sugars that come through on the palate.
