Rare Ayrshire 36 yo 1975/2012 Cask #3419

Rare Ayrshire 36 yo 1975/2012 Cask #3419

Cask Strength, Signatory 
Single malt - Lowlands
46% ABV

Nose: Raisins, malted grains, orange zest, leather, coconut oil, rhubarb and custard sweets, hints of bubblegum.
Mouthfeel: Light body, thickens, turns slippery in the mouth.
Tasting: Sweet sour. Orange zest, raisins, rhubarb and custard sweets, lychees, coconut oil, hints of bubblegum.
Finish: Long. Leather, orange zest, rhubarb and custard sweets, coconut oil, bubblegum.


This is Ladyburn! Light and playful, despite its age. There are heaps of tangy, sweet sour notes, very Rosebank-y, except that there's little or no lemon. Lots of other fragrances, something very like coconut oil, and something much lighter and sweeter, like the bubblegum I used to chew when I was a kid. Very nice. Why is it that the great whiskies come from closed distilleries?


I like this a lot.
