  • Nose:

    Honey, dough, rich lemon zest. Some yeasty sweetness and a mild bit of ethanol.

  • Taste:

    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.

  • Finish:

    Short and mildly astringent but sweet and filled with corn, grain and dough notes.

  • Overall:

    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.
