Strathmill-Old Malt Cask-1962-39 year old
Distilled April 1962, Bottled May 2001 by Douglas Laing & Co. Ltd., Glasgow
One of 270 bottles. Cask strength, Sherry cask. In original carton. Good labelling. Level: into neck.

"Nose: starts like a very typical old sherry monster, with first quite some coffee, chocolate and wood smoke and then a development on dried fruits and old sweet wine/rancio. Figs, dates, fruitcake, dried bananas... Then we're back on lit matches, and finally something meaty but not exactly beefy. Something like English brown sauce, cooked onions, ham... And prunes. Fresher than expected in any case, no excessive tannins whatsoever and a smokiness that grows bigger with time. Also cigar box, tobacco. A good surprise." (Whiskyfun)

700ml. Single Malt., 45.2% volume.
