Color
Russetmuscat
Nose

In der Nase riecht er nach Lack, Politur, Marzipan, süßem Malz, Toffee, Bananenschale und natürlich nach Holz. Auch lassen sich Aromen reifer Früchte, Marc de Champagne-Trüffel und natürlich alter Rum erkennen.


Taste

Im Mund ist er sehr mild und ausgewogen. Rumkugel (Schokolade und Jamaika-Rum), süßes Malz, aber auch Aromen von Leder, Politur und einer guten Portion Holz ohne Bitterkeit.  Einfach fantastisch


Finish

Der Abgang ist süß, rumkugelig und von mittlerer Länge mit mildem Holz.

Comments

Mit 51% wirkt er auf mich verschlossen. Einige Tropfen Wasser öffnen ihn. Durch das Vermählen von Grain-Destillat verschiedener Destillerie-Charaktere, ist ein komplexer Grain-Whisky entstanden.

Color
Tawny
Nose

Открытый, сухой, сухие доски, мебельный лак, камфора, эвкалипт, солёные виноградные листья, лёгкие нотки смолы и растворителя, ваниль,.

Taste

Плотный, мощный, лаково-леденцовый, волна красного перца, имбирные цукаты, смола, цитрусовый конфитюр, немного горечи молодой коры.

Finish

Мягкое, согревающее, маслянистое, чуть терпкий, вяжущий дуб, леденцы монпансье, апельсиновые корки в сиропе, ваниль, лёгкие смоляные нотки, мята, эвкалипт, немного медово-цветочных тонов, в развитии становится боле свежим, лёгким; слабые оттенки хвои и соли.

Comments

Неплохо для грейна, лучше чем 50-летний релиз, более глубоко, разнообразно вышло, виски получился живой, развивающийся, активный, аромат при небогатой палитре производных весьма приятен, динамичен; вкус также не подкачал, а вот финиш вышел и вовсе отличным, сложным, длительным, развивающимся от согревающего до лёгкого освежающего; вообще не чувствуется никакой усталости, очень бодро и подвижно.

Nose

Grain in it's full glory: glue, vanilla, polished wood, car wash, old leather. Then, banana custard, stewed apricot and cinnamon pastry. 

Taste

Full-bodied, coating, and syrupy. It's soft, with a nice grain feel of sugars, polished oak, different sorts of custard (vanilla, banana), whipped cream, old chesterfields, and danish pastry. 

Finish

Long, with nice acidity, low bitterness, and a lot of creamy and sugary sensations. Along with that is a full dose of polished old furniture (again those chesterfields).

Comments

A top notch blended grain. 

Cheers! Paul

All three Quotes on Golden Grains by Whiskynotes.be (Ruben)

Quote Whiskynotes.be (Ruben) - November 23, 2016

Golden Grain 51 yo 1964 (51%, Cooper’s Choice 2016, fresh bourbon cask #1307, 240 btl.)

Nose: a little flatter, it’s slightly less emphatic and aromatic. When nosed after one of the others, you can’t seem to pick up much. When trying them the other way round, it is always overtaken by the next one. Nonetheless it has the same aromas: vanilla, polished wood, including a hint of glue. Warm leather. Hints of women’s powder. Mouth: perhaps a little fruitier than the first one, but differences are small. Peaches, apples, berries. Hints of cigar boxes. Peppery notes. Brown sugar and caramelized almonds. Finish: medium long, smooth and sweet.

This one seems a little less emphatic. That’s not an advantage on the nose (at least not in a direct comparison) but it also means it’s even smoother, rounder in the mouth. I prefer the 50yo but they’re close together. Around € 230.

Score: 90/100

Comments

The best grain whisky I taste ever.
Sure that is not an old cognac?! :)
Martell Cordon Bleu is similar.
But the grainy notes convince me it's not!

Again an excellent old grain issued by Coopers Choice. Very decent, well rounded and comes at an excellent strenght despite the age of 51 years! No water needed, or maybe just a few drops. Less immediate bourbon/wood note than some recent 1972 or 1973 Invergordons (also excellent stuff!), but just really very very nice grain whisky, which seems to become more pupular recently. I must say that younger grains of less than 25-30 years age tend to be always somehow alcoholic in a way, thus not really lovely, but these sort of forgotten casks that were lingering around for 40-50 years or sow display whiskies of a quality that is making me addicted to this stuff, and I guess for a good reason.
I am wondering if there is stil plenty of these casks in warehouses or if we will soon regret not to have stocked more of such unreproduceable whiskies! (thanks to Enveloop for a bottle and a sample!)
