Tasting Notes

North British 28 Year Old Cask 34443 Tasting Notes

Appearance: Astonishingly dark! Old oak or burnt umber.

Nose: Outrageously sweet, almost like a dark rum. Thick molasses. There are dried fruits - prunes, dried figs - but this is intense stuff. Tiramisu. PX sherry. Water doesn’t knock back much! Perhaps it lets those dried fruits shine through a little more.

Palate: Again, this is in the intense syrup part of the spectrum, but not thickly textured. Plum jam. Raisins stewed in brandy. Again Tiramisu shines here. Dark chocolate bitterness. Not much room for other flavours to manifest - even with water - as there are some huge dominant sweet notes.

Finish: Not as long as you would think, and the texture remains thin, but just a little nice tannic tartness. Unusual, but in a world of often identical-tasting grain whiskies, this is a rare treat.
