Its old as shit. Barreled in 1964 and bottled in 2015, this is a 51 year old single barrel cask strength malt whiskey released some time ago by KL Wines.
Honey, honeydew, cantaloupe, apples, graham crackers. Vanilla, faint toffee. Overall, its very pleasant. Not super bold, but delicious smelling.
No heat, but a fairly rich mouthfeel. Sweet vanilla, caramel, graham crackers. Faint smoke, but very subtle. Some cocoa and a bit of nice tannins. Not overbearing at all.
Long, drying and sweet. Very dry but balanced well with cocoa and some caramel.
Im pretty surprised how delicious and balanced this is. Sure, it was expensive, but a malt that age that is also of quality for $400 doesnt seem like a high price to pay.
