Strathmill 1962 / 45 Year Old / Sherry Cask
70cl / 40.5%
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Douglas Laing
Medium-bodied, yet intense and full-flavoured from forty-five years in what must have been a phenomenal sherry cask. A corker, and almost embarassingly under-priced for a malt of this quality.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by TF

Nose: Glorious varnished wood aromas, a touch of smoke, plenty of sherry notes, gingerbread, brown sugar, syrup.  What a cask this must have been.

Palate:  Mouth-coating oak, with wood spice, but quite medium-weight.  Very sherried, but the malt hangs in there - just.  This is delicate and classy.

Finish:  Dry. The spices outlast the wood and oak, with good length and delicate layers of malt and sherry fading softly away.

Comment: 40.5% tells its own story - they caught this in the nick of time.  Intense flavours in a very delicate body - perhaps could have been bottled a couple of years ago for the extra weight, but this is a beautiful, elegant old lady.
