North Star Vega 41 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky Review

North Star Vega 41 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky Nothing beats a well ages blended scotch whisky and this is yet another of those, this time from North Star Spirits, an independent bottler that I've not spent anywhere near as much time with as i should have so far.

This sample comes from Neil, who really should be reviewing this himself so I'm going to give him grief over that!

There is an exceptional nose to this dram it has a bit of everything, although maybe a little too rich for my normal palate! This is definitely drinkable, but i couldn't cope with more than a glass or two.

Sold out everywhere i could see but there is still a Perfect Measure sample available from The Whisky Exchange

Thanks to Neil MacKinnon who shared this sample with me.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

The first thing i'm getting from this is a lovely beeswax note, then treacle covered scones, definitely milk chocolate notes, but it's that soft galaxy milk chocolate, not the cadburys/milka stuff its definitely a smooth milk chocolate, hints of wood spices, prunes in juice and some Chinese five spice in here also, really inviting nose.

Palate

A touch of wood spices up front, Chinese five spice, then a coating of treacle covered scones, then that milk chocolate again (yup Galaxy), a milky/creamy/buttery note also and a touch of black peppercorn on the end of my tongue, tasty stuff.

Finish

Creamy and buttery, with treacle still hovering and a touch of that black peppercorn also.
