Master of Malt 60 Year Old Speyside Review

Master of Malt 60 Year Old Speyside This is the oldest whisky i have ever had the pleasure of tasting, with this particular dram having been distilled in 1954.

i really was expecting this to be very woody but it's not, there is an oak influence for sure but it doesn't ruin the overall nose or palate.

You can pick up a bottle of this for the bargain price of £999.95 from Master of Malt.

Many thanks to Master of Malt for the very kind sample.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

as you would expect from a whisky that has spent 60 years in oak there's a woodiness here, but it is light and not sawdusty, there's cedarwood and a real floral note with violets and carnations. underlying it is a hint of citrus and cinnamon, lovely nose.

Palate

sweet floral notes, carnations especially, honey nut corn flakes, hints of white pepper in the background, vanilla candles and raisins with hints of spice and liqorice also

Finish

sweet, cedarwood and vanilla candles
