Aroma: medicinal hebrs, apple cider, matured grappa (grapes distillate). Fruityand bit spicy. Acetone, fresh color paint. Sour.
Palate: sweet, bit spicy and very similar to aroma, but I feel trace of barley and yeast. What can show this is whisky (ar at least matured grain spirit). Pepper, pine apple and grass. Very interesting, I would bling guess for grappa. Very sour palate, as aroma also is. Finish: fruity, bitdry with notes of pine apple and pepper.
Comment: very unsual, interesting. Hard to tell is it the style that was common these days or it is ruined - syntetic, sour, unusual notes.. Kind of mouldy. Maybe uncleaned bottling line? Or was exposed to sunlight for decades? It is still mystery to me. That's why I still be looking for another bottle one day.
Isn't often I gan get old blend from the past. And if this is it's original taste, I would rather choose modern blend like Chivas 12.

The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
