Dumpy cork bottle, no abv listed ,

Nose
Creamy, slightly spicy and fruity with a little honey.
Wafer, biscuit and cream.
Various fruit peels, orange, lemon and lime with caramel cake with a slight manufactured note, similar to glue but I could also describe it similar to menthol, difficult to decide.
Very pleasant

Taste
great fat on the palate with bags of spice and a fair dose of peat.
Mango, plum, a little ginger and pastry.
It does get a little bitter but the peat and fruit keep it at bay and it seems to get creamier as the peat starts to take control.
Great Balance

Finish
Long finish remaining spicy and the peat warms your tongue.

Bottled about 70 years ago, well am I glad I opened it, you bet Smile

Thankfully its quite thick, syrupy almost with a high malt content, the nose is very nice.

As old blends go its a good one, mind I would not pay £400 for it maybe £150-£200 just to try something this old.

This is an old blend so not for cask strength peat heads or sherried to death malt fans, that said some nice sherry notes are there.

I cannot remember what I paid for this but it was good value that I do remember.

This old bend is a perfect example of why you should not ignore them, they tend to have a high malt content of this, good single malt at that Smile
