Glendullan Rare Malts – 23 years old 1974

Rating: 8 out of 10

Nose: very old school whisky. In line with the Pittyvaich 20 years old OB. Fruits, malt and minerals, with an ever so slight hint of smoking embers. I love this. Quite hot and spirity at firsrt nosing, but Smells like a mix of bourbon and sherry barrels, with the bourbon being the most influential, but without being too sweet and vanilla-ish. Very, very nice.
Mouth: for something bottled at a whopping 63.1%, this is stunningly drinkable without water. It’s actually quite smooth. Velvetty even, with a nice complexity. Slightly salty, with more fruits and some really nice cereal notes.
Finish: medium long, and not very intense, but strangely satisfying.
