White Horse Blend (Bottled 1940s)
Thanks to Jason of Malt for the sample of this White Horse Blend, bottled in 1940s, the sharing of whisky between friends is a great way to try some whiskies you would never do otherwise.
I've had a really old White Horse before (click to read) and when Jason turned up with a sample of this I was seriously excited.
Named after the White Horse bar on Edinburghs Royal Mile, actually the oldest bar on the royal mile dating back to 1742, and next door to my workplace this holds a bit of an emotional connection for me .
A really intriguing dram this, it definitely tastes "old" with lots of dusty notes with a whisp of smoke, fruity and chalky, and very very light on the palate (under proof), not the best whisky i'll ever try but a really interesting one to try all the same.
Thanks again to Jason for the sample of this dram, image from Jasons original post on this.
an initial dustiness dunnage warehouse with spiced plums, sweet candy (like thos PEZ sweets) a touch of honey roast vegetables over a BBQ, milk chocolate splattered with runny caramel
sweet and gentle, tastes very much under proof, watery fruits with a wisp of sweet honey infused smoke
