SMWS G7.3 (Girvan 27 yo 1984/2012)

SMWS G7.3 (Girvan 27 yo 1984/2012)

2012, SMWS
Single grain - Lowlands
59.4% ABV

Nose: Vanilla ice cream, popcorn, bananas, baked potatoes, hints of rope. 
Mouthfeel: Medium body, oily, smooth, mouth coating. 
Tasting: Sweet sour. Bananas, leather, popcorn, vanilla, cardboard, white pepper. 
Finish: Medium. Leather, cardboard, white pepper. 


Starts out promisingly, with lots of tasty fruity fragrant notes, but then fades into a slightly unpleasant welter of rope and leather. Normally I find leathery notes to be a tasty sign of nice aging, but here it tastes somewhat musty.


Not bad.
