Whyte & Mackay 19 yo Old Luxury

by Oliver Klimek on December 30, 2009


My Tasting Notes:


Nose: Quite intense, tea, tobacco, dark chocolate, cassis, a wee bit of smoke
Palate: Dry and slightly sweet, caramel, oriental spices, just a faint fruitiness
Finish: Very long and slightly smoky
Overall: A very richly flavoured sherried blend. The nose is impressive, but the palate could profit from a few more ABV points. This is miles away from the standard supermarket or pub blends. The aged grain whisky has lost all of its roughness and caters for a delicate silky smooth mouthfeel.

Score: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
