    A friend brought this out to kick off a tasting of old (90s and earlier) official distillery single malt releases. I was amazed at just how fragrant this whisky was— I was off taking photos of bottles, and suddenly the air was laden with tropical florals and watermelon. I thought for sure it was someone nearby enjoying some fresh-cut fruit or trying out a perfume. I was shocked when I realized it was this bottle that I had smelled. My friend believed the bottle dated from the 1960s; however, a quick examination revealed it was more likely from the 1990s as the size came in metric (post-1980 in the US) and had a surgeon general’s warning (post-1989). He was not too disappointed, though, because the blend was excellent, with well-integrated tropical vibes and undercurrents running toward earth, salt, smoke, and savoriness.

    The current Dimple Pinch 15 Year does not quite have the same distinctive profile and nothing like the lovely finish of this bottle. However, in a pinch…
    • Nose
      Very fragrant and floral, watermelon rind, wispy smoke, tropical florals, morning glories, beach naupaka, hints of maritime salt and driftwood.
    • Taste
      Medium-bodied, mellow tropical florals, tropical fruit hard candies, hibiscus, papaya, a kiss of salt, wispy smoke, mellow earthiness, achiote seeds.
    • Finish
      Medium-length with perfume water notes, tropical florals, and a hint of smoke.

    i taste that bottle for a long time, its really alright for the price i paid. A beautiful whiskey, if you consider the price, to the 45 euro makes you not much wrong.15 years now often enough more. He has a total of a wide range of flavors, but first I taste the wood, a certain sweetness, no alcohol. it unfolds in the mouth, but it does not have a particularly long finish, which one does not expect. At present, I do not taste it, because a thick cold, the keys very unfavorably affected.
