Nose: At first, there’s a whiff of nail polish remover which soon changes into a mix of tutti frutti and menthol. It’s creamy with honey and vanilla notes. Altogether it creates the image of a sponge cake. There’s also notes of breakfast cereals coming through.
Mouth: It’s very ”bitey” and there are hints of an entire breakfast with cereals with honey, and cream. The oak comes through and brings some coffee to the table. It’s very bitter. It matches the nose pretty well.
Finish: The finish is very oak forward and the age really comes through. There’s grey wooden planks and espresso. It comes with walnuts and hazelnuts and it’s quite bitter. The sweet grainy notes resides in the background, but the oak completely takes over.
This grain whisky from the closed distillery Dumbarton is unchillfiltered and has natural colour. It’s from a single cask (HL 14327) filled in 1987 and there was with 135 bottles produced.
