      Naturally glue, but after some time the glue falls away and the smell of vanilla and caramel is released. In the background you can smell something tobacco.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The tobacco here is predominant accompanied by a bitter pepper.
    • Finish

    I tasted this dram over 3 days.
    The first dram was the best. Typical old grain with all the best you can imagine.
    Two days later I made a bottlekill AND tasted it H2H with 38yo Port Dundas from SMWS (G6.9).
    Both where poured and left alone in the glasses. I only nosed them for 45 min.
    N: Now the 44yo had acetone in the nose, later classic grain. P: Seams stronger than 49.3%. Lovely grain, vanilla and dry grass. F: Long lasting and "sprawling".
    After 60-70 minutes banana and lollies in the summertime were added to the nose.
