  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    A very nice and well matured grain.
    It's 43 years old and I got the bottle for £170 in 2020.
    Put that in perspective to a malt of the same age, then consider the arguement of evaporation and storage cost they use to defend the price.
    • Nose

      Very fresh, sweet and inviting.
      Vanilla cream, candy apple.
      You can smell that it has quite some age to it, but the wood is increadably light for 43 years. What I find is that of clean pure American white oak.
      There are some wheaty cereal notes, but much more "lively" and interesting than what you find in younger grain. Maybe a few drops of lime in there.
      Nose as deep as you want, the alc is more or less unnoticable.
      Strangely enough if I leave it for a while there is a short whiff of high octane gasoline when I return to it. Not unpleasant, there for an instant, then impossible to detect.
      Water makes it feel more accessable. Even sweeter, even brighter. More vanilla and a little coconut. And the gasolin never showed up again.
    • Taste

      Much more flavours than are let on by the nose.
      Bolder, richer, with a waxy texture on arrival.
      The oak is more pronounced with a bourbonesk vanilla.
      Medium build up of peppery spice.
      I feel that water kind of dulled it down, it worked OK for the nose, but I prefer the taste neat.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Quite long. Drying wood.
      Spicy warm.
      With water it remains warm, but it's less spicy taste to it.
      In general, shorter and less tasty.
      Empty glass smells of a fruity breakfast cereal.
