The beast of Dufftown does it again.
Old Malt Cask
1992, 16 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Nose: Rich and robust.Fruit cake richness, a hint of fireworks, rib of beef, hint of rosin. Layered and complex with masses of integrated oak extract balanced by the fact this is a weighty spirit. Opens and sweetens with water.
Palate: Big and tannic, but there’s also a sweet note of toffee, coffee, Dundee cake, and ripe black fruits. Powerful with great balance.
Finish: Treacle. Long and surprisingly sweet.
Comment: The beast of Dufftown does it again.
Nose: Earthy. Wet moss. Wood covered with fungus. Sherry influence. Dry fruit. Touch of prunes. Then comes custard on the prunes. Quite rich and complex.
Palate: Elegant, complex. Oak frames a sweet display of custard and fruit. Hint of candied chestnut. Lots of spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cubèbe pepper.
Finish: Lingering on liquorice and spices.
Comment: An old character for sure. Still vibrant. Refined and conversational. Beautiful after dinner dram.
