    I am really not sure about this one, not as good as the other 5 star 70 proof I have had.

    Part of the profile show their age, which I really like but there is also a slight off note that stopsme saying this is a good one.

    I usually really like 5 star

    Undecided?????
    • Nose
      Toffee & orange almost sherry like but pale cream sherry on the nose.
    • Taste
      Toffee and orange, with fudge & cream.
      There is  polish and some boiled fruit sweets
    • Finish
      Not too long

    I will do a full tasting note another time but this bottle has just been opened.

    At first the nose smelt a little of caramel which reminded me of Whyte & Mackay but it smells of polish and resin which shows its age.

    The palate is thick and chewy with some honey and a little menthol but its just gloriously old and I bet there is some 20 year malts in this certainly 15.

    Not quite as good as the 1950`s bottle I had but first impression of this bottle is a good one.

    Just a few reservations with the nose at the moment.

    I love the look of these old Crawfords bottles

    This is a 70 proof bottle from the late 60`s
