Color

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!)

Nose

Orange, yellow raisin, marzipan, vanilla, oak and spice. Only a little glue. Tree bark, pine needles, apple, raspberry and a small whiff of smoke. Later a little caramel. With water some 7Up and Zwitsal.

Taste

An orange profile like in an old cognac or rum. Yellow raisin and a lot of spice. A woodiness like dental sticks. Apple, raspberry, tonic, vanilla and caramel. Water doesn't really change any of the notes I pick up, but it does make it all a little louder somehow.

Finish

Raisin, apple, vanilla pudding and oak.

Comments

Had someone poured me a dram and told it was an old cognac or rum, I probably would have believed him. Quite a different profile from the 50YO released before. Can't say which one I prefer, they're both the best of the best in grains.
