Today Master of Malt has released a new member of their Secret Bottlings series, a stunning 60 years old single malt whisky for… umm… let’s see… Brora 40yo is £7,000, a Macallan Lalique goes for around £30,000… so this 60 years old Speysider will be sold for…
What?! £1,000?! I don’t have the money but I have to agree that it is an interesting proposal. One of my favorites is Glenfarclas 40 years old and it goes for barely £240… so a 60 years old whisky for £999 is around the ok price. But why speak about money when I have a dram of this stunning stuff waiting to be tasted?
So without any delays… here it is…
Master of Malt Speyside 60 years old
“Delightful experience... not everyday one has the honour of drinking liquid Scotland history. I think this whisky is even better than the mythical Glenfarclas 58yo released a few years ago for a fraction of the price”
It is Master of Malt's oldest bottling to date and one of the oldest whisky releases in history.
This dram has a cooper-like color.
Nose (94): more than average. honey, nuts, cinnamon, spices, vanilla, dried flowers, citrus, wood, sandalwood, cloves. Lovely layer after layer of aromas. Not even woody for a 60 years old in a cask as I was expecting... This whisky reminds me of... nevermind.
Palate (93): powerful, oily. honey, nuts, citrus, spices, pepper, dry, raisins, candies, vanilla, liquorice.
Finish (93): longer than average. honey, candies, spices, pepper, wood.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Master of Malt 60 years old Speyside Single Malt Whisky with 93 points over 100.
I have tasted old whiskies that where incredible but that need time to approach and enjoy them fully… this whisky on the other hand assault you with pleasure from the very first moment. Not too sweet, not too woody, not too spicy.
It is a crazy guess but I think this whisky could be a Glenfarclas… because it reminds me powerfully of their Glenfarclas 58yo and because it is one of the few distilleries I can think of that can still have such old and good whisky.
You are just £1,000 away from perfection.
