Member Ratings and Notes

Nose is sweet in a strange way, like spoiling apples. Big honey. Malty, bready stuff. Also, my lawn.

 

Not much here in the palate, and it goes down like water. A grassy, malty, bready number with very light spices. Mildly sweet.

 

Presumably this stuff was pretty inexpensive at the time, it probably very much appealed to whisky palates shaped post-WWII. Unobjectionable, and interesting mainly in an historic sense.

N: A little Glenrothesy, over-ripe, port wine.
P: Very odd, sort of tastes like a weak bourbon.  It's got some interesting woody spice, rhubarb, but...
F: ...gets funky and vegetal in the finish.    Not so good.
