An old blended malt from Inver House under the label of Glen Flagler distillery – 40%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright straw
Nose: Lemon, grass, hints of bananas, pineapple and polished wood.
Palate: Malt, hints of nuts and herbs, lime, nutmeg and a little pepper, even slightly floral.
Finish: Medium long, dry and slightly fruity.
Overall: This malt is rather fragile and light-bodied, even at 40% it needs a little water and quite some time to open up. It is a quite complex whisky but in a very subdued way. A very good aperitive when you have enough time to enjoy it.
Rating: 84/100 – No price information as this is a collector’s bottle
Note: After all I have raead about this bottling, this is a blended ot vatted malt. I would loved to have Glen Flagler removed from my distillery want list, but this can only be done after having tasted a Glen Flagler single malt.
It is becaue of bottlings like this, the use of term “pure malt” has been prohibited by the SWA, and rightly so.
