Port Dundas 52 Year Old
 44.6%   |    70cl

A natural cask strength single grain scotch whisky from Port Dundas, a historic grain distillery that has recently closed. From refill American Oak hogshead 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.

Port Dundas 52 Year Old
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

Central Lowland

Appearance

Rose 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.

Information

Make: Port Dundas

Age: 52 years old, distilled in 1964

Strength: 44.6% ABV

Place of Origin: Port Dundas

Region: Central Lowland

Palate

Creamy in texture and lightly sweet, with honey and golden syrup, then buttery, spiced pastry. Some dried fruit is succeeded by a decadent fruit salad of wine gums and boiled sweets balanced by fresh, sweet-sour apples, limes, apricots and unripe mangoes. Spice builds as the fruit fades, with freshly sawn oak and cinnamon. Water isn't needed, but with it the texture is smooth, the taste sweet, with creamy-sweet vanilla around the fruity core.

Nose

Rich butterscotch leads quickly into pastry and masses of sweet, sugar dusted fruit, with a top note of fruit chews on a base of fruit salad in syrup (including sharp fresh apple and pear, tinned peaches & pineapple, fresh nectarine and banana). 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 and vibrant. A drop of water increases the oak-related scents, and introduces traces of almond oil.

Finish

Long, warming and oaky; the fruit returns, as apple skin and sweet pear, now tempered by nutmeg-spiced butter and herbal hints, with a lingering last note of peach.
