DTC Carsebridge 1979 28yo Cask 33026 52.4%

I love grain whisky (to be fair I love all whisky) and it annoys me when people don't give it the respect it deserves. Ok compared with malt whisky it is hugely mass produced just looking at the cask number on this confirms that! But put it in a decent cask and give it time and amazing things can happen! Go on you malt snob give it a try!

Nose: Cheap yellow vanilla ice cream. Caramac bars and digestive biscuits with melted butter.

Taste: Rich, velvety a touch spicy with lots of toffee notes and maybe a touch of cheesecake.

Finish: long, very long a touch rye like and a little dry.

Comment: Stunning whisky, if it wasn't for the slight dry note on the finish this would score even higher.

Score: 92/100
