Honey, dough, rich lemon zest. Some yeasty sweetness and a mild bit of ethanol.
Mellow and slightly thin mouth feel but lots of doughy, custard, vanilla sweetness. Coupled with a fair amount of citrus and some nice lemon zest it's light and almost dessert like.
Short and mildly astringent but sweet and filled with corn, grain and dough notes.
It's really cool to taste really old stuff. I can't say its absurdly good but I do like it a lot. I need to get some modern Chivas to compare but something tells me that there might be a good bit of difference. I like that this dram is light, sweet and doughy for a blend that's undeniably not "top shelf". For that reason, I'm scoring this dram a 6 - a cut above.
