[43.0%・Bottled Circa 1970s・21 Years Old・Official Bottling Imported by Maison Du Whisky・Limited Release]
Old school pear sweets with a mellow grassy note. Subtle sense of malt with a brush of sea salt. Seaweed and herbs surfacing in time and opened up to minerals, red cherry and orange slices.
Palate & Finish:
A clean grassy delivery, brightened up by the barley sugar with a wee citrus edge from the tropical fruits, a pinch of pepper draws the malt back.
Mellow and mild but wonderfully fruity in a subtle manner and the tail fades out in a puff of cigarette smoke.
A minimalistic dram that really opens up in the glass. It is stylistically quite clean as one would expect from the 50s distillate but with a pleasant surprise that is the touch of smoke.
