Customer Rating

The oldest bottling in the 2018 edition of Diageo's Special Releases and the sole grain whisky entry: a 48 year old from closed Carsebridge distillery – it closed back in 1983. This is a classic old grain whisky, matured in refill American-oak hogsheads to ensure that the spirit wasn't overwhelmed by wood influence.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting note by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose:

      Portuguese custard tarts, crystallised honey, blackcurrants and model glue. Thick vanilla and toffee spread across a freshly varnished table.

    • Palate:

      Sugar syrup and fudge, lime and vanilla cream. Full-strength Ribena follows, along with developing notes of damp leaves and forest floors.

    • Finish:

      Blackcurrants hang around, slowly facing to reveal caramel, brown sugar and a touch of varnish.

    • Comment:

      A fine balance of the elegant dustiness and rancio typical of old grain against rich fruit and more youthful brown sugar and toffee notes.

    A very smooth whisky with a slight hint of vanilla.
