  2. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This single grain whisky has been matured in an oak cask for an
    impressive period of half a century! The final result is an enticing
    oldie, well matured with a lovely
    balance of oaky spiciness and bourbon derived flavours. Rich,
    fruity, spicy, and an excellent mouthfeel. A cracking example of a
    mature grain!

    I thank Douglas Laing for the sample!

    • Nose
      The nose starts off with vanilla, caramel and dark fruits, mainly plums.
      Delicate notes of baked apples arrive, mixed with cinnamon spice and
      orange oil. Oak and some
      earthy flavours in the back.
    • Taste
      A sweet start on the palate with orange and caramel, accompanied by an
      intense spiciness of black pepper, oak, cloves and cinnamon. Once the
      spiciness fades, notes of
      dark berries and acacia honey linger towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish shows medium length with sweet vanilla, dry oak, cloves and a hint of earthy flavours on the tail.

      With water: Fresher on the nose after adding a few
      drops of water. There's more vanilla coming through, mixed with dark
      berries, plums and subtle oak. The bold spiciness is
      significantly tamed while notes or oranges, caramel and oak
      dominate. Less sweet. The finish is medium long and slightly warming
      with a lovely spicy mix of oak, cloves, cinnamon and acacia
