DESCRIPTION

The Rare Malt Selection is a historic selection of single malt whiskies from operational and lost distilleries that were released by Diageo between 1995 and 2005.

TASTING NOTES 

Colour: straw.

Nose: this one is much rawer, smoky, meaty and grassy, with notes of mustard seeds, ham, wet chalk… Truly wild. Not pungent despite the high alcohol but let’s try it with water (at roughly 45%): we have more wax now, fir honey, vanilla pods, pollen… Water really worked, this one is an excellent swimmer but it’s not quite as complex as the 1969. Hints of wet dog. Mouth (neat): punchy and much fruitier, on canned pineapples, oranges and a slight waxiness. Lots of alcohol of course that quite masks the whole. So, with water: even sweeter but also spicier, with more tannins but also quite some salt and those mustardy notes.

Long, peppery and spicy finish, with less sweetness but a little resin now. The whole is quite ‘natural’, a good example of most Rare Malts’ style. 87 points.
