SMWS G3.8 (Caledonian 35 yo 1979/2015)

2015, SMWS
Single grain - Lowlands
53.9% ABV

Nose: Vanilla, figs, peaches, cookie dough, dates, honey, hints of burnt toast. With water, lemon zest, tomatoes.
Mouthfeel: Heavy body, chunky, viscous, oily.
Tasting: Sweet. Butter, toast, figs, peaches, vanilla, dates, brown paper, hints of celery. With water, lemon zest, roses, hints of tomatoes.
Finish: Medium. Burnt toast, peaches, honey, dates.


Oooh, old Caledonian. Starts out very sweet, neat, with nice vanilla notes, redolent with honey and fruits. With water though, it becomes tarter, lemony, even a nice sour tomato hint. This is brilliant grain whisky, much less vanilla-laden than normal.


I like this a lot.
