A natural cask strength single grain Scotch Whisky from Port Dundas, a historic grain distillery that closed in 2009. From refill American Oak hogsheads filled in 1964, Port Dundas is an example of very old grain, with a hugely fruity centre. It's astonishingly rich and complex for a grain whisky, and might be mistaken for a classy bourbon on the nose and in the mouth.

APPEARANCERose gold - simply exquisite.

NOSE: Rich butterscotch leads quickly into pastry and masses of sweet, with a top note of fruit chews on a base of fruit salad in syrup. This folds into classic vanilla toffee and planed oak as a more savoury and meaty note develops, adding an umami richness, while everything remains fresh.

BODY: Light to medium with some oiliness.

PALATE: Creamy in texture and lightly sweet, with honey and golden syrup. Some dried fruit is succeeded by a decadent fruit salad of wine gums balanced by fresh fruits. Spice builds as the fruit fades, with freshly sawn oak and cinnamon.

FINISH: Long, warming and oaky.
