North British 30
A single cask, cask strength single grain from Douglas Laing's The Clan Denny range. This was distilled in 1979 and matured for 30 years in refill butt number 5557.
This is a wonderful whisky. I bought one a few months ago and I'm already halfway through it.
The nose is very fruity, vanilla, raspberries.
The palate is a bit oily. Spices, sweetness and very nutty. Since it's 54,2% I would definately recommend adding a splash of water. You can actually add a lot of water it won't drown easily.
The finish is quite long, with orange zest and surtain smoothness.
