Details

A Speyside single malt produced at a mystery distillery (there’s reason to believe it is Glenfarclas) and matured in a Port cask. In fact it is a marriage of two casks, filled in December 1967 and bottled March 1994. cask #8923 Undisclosed Speyside 1967 (40%, Gordon & MacPhail 1993, port cask #8923 Nose: pretty aromatic being 40%, slightly vinous but in a nice way. Starts on toffee apples and a lot of red plums. Redcurrant jam, over time also very nice strawberries. Hints of oranges. Mild oak, some dried flowers. Soft raspberry vinegar. Just a hint of herbs. Mouth: sweet start, quite creamy, with blackcurrant and strawberries again, soft honey and hints of kirsch. Plums and raisins. Gradually more oak and drier, herbal notes. Liquorice. Also slight rummy notes in the very end. Finish: long, still a bit rummy, with a growing leathery dryness. This could have been a sherry cask, which is a good thing. Maybe the strawberries and the rummy notes give away the Port cask? In any case it’s impressively vivid. Nice stuff that will be easily overlooked as it lacks a distillery name
