I wasn't surprised to learn this was a single grain whisky.
1965, Aged 38 Years
Year of Bottling
Nose: Rich and silky. Luxurious nose with a threat of alcohol to come.
Palate: Mouth-watering spice but otherwise little of distinction.
Finish: Shorter than expected. Finishes on a high but loses flavours along the way.
Comment: I wasn't surprised to learn this was a single grain whisky.
Nose: Lightly smoky. Tequila-like. Lime. Slightly musty.
Palate: Light. Sugary. Icing sugar. Citrus oil.
Finish: Key lime pie. Pastry.
Comment: Such a long ageing has made the bourbon wood very dominating. The crisp, cleansing, hint of pine in the distillery bottling better suited a single grain.
