Review of Mosstowie 31 years old 1979 Signatory Cask Strength Collectionin Tasting , Glen Keith
“Scrumptious floral whisky. Mourn with me this tragic loss”
89A 31 year old Speysider, this was distilled at Miltonduff on the 18th May 1979, it was aged for 31 years in a single hogshead, before bottling by Signatory on the 24th November 2010. A release of 188 bottles.
Mosstowie is whisky distilled at Miltonduff from malted barley, but in column stills! Which by today standards would rule it out as single malt scotch whisky.
This dram has a gold-like color.
Nose (86): average. floral, honey, candies, nutmeg, vanilla. Smells like PEZ candies. Interesting.
Palate (91): smooth, dry. floral, honey, citrus, spices, vanilla, wood.
Finish (90): longer than average. honey, floral, wood, spices.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Mosstowie 31 year 1979 Cask Strength Collection with 89 points over 100.
