  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Honey, honeydew, cantaloupe, apples, graham crackers. Vanilla, faint toffee. Overall, its very pleasant. Not super bold, but delicious smelling.

  • Taste:

    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.

  • Finish:

    Long, drying and sweet. Very dry but balanced well with cocoa and some caramel.

  • Overall:

    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.

  • Score:

    8
