“A must-have single grain whisky. Smells of bourbon, tastes like bourbon, but it is Scotch.”
This was distilled on the 22nd January 1991, and was aged in a first fill bourbon barrel for 20 years before bottling in March 2011.
A single cask release of 244 bottles. As with any Master of Malt bottled whisky, this is non-chillfiltered, and has not been caramel coloured.
This dram has a fino-like color.
Nose (90): strong. corn, vanilla, floral, honey, wood.
Palate (93): oily, powerful. floral, citrus, corn, wood, spices, honey, vanilla.
Finish (91): very long. floral, corn, vanilla.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this North British 20 year 1991 Single Cask Master of Malt with 91 points over 100.
