  1. Gråmantel scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Tasted a 5cl that looked very much like this one at 43.0 % Vol. Some evaporation had taken place and it might have been just a little tainted by the screw cap as can happen with these old miniatures. Tasting these old blends is simply a lot of fun, they are not that expensive so I don't mind if this was a slightly bad sample, it's still an education.

      Very thin and fragile (perhaps due to oxidisation). Has some dried fruit, sweet tobacco and soft vanilla. Old coins. No peat but some old sherry way in the back, I bet this was quite good when it was bottled.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Again very thin, almost watery. Metallic going into wet leather. A little sweet.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Short. Dry, green tea. I can almost sense some smokíness but one really has to look for it.
