Dallas Dhu 1971, G&M – CC, 40%

Review #598
This is a 1971 vintage miniature from Gordon & MacPhail’s “Connoisseurs Choice” series, probably bottled in the nineties. Burned caramel, oak and raisins in the smell. Some sugary sweetness and baked apples in the end.

Quite surprised! It is very rich in flavours in the taste! Even with a great alcohol burn. I would never have guessed this to be 40%! Again, the burned caramel is the first I notice in the taste. Some plums and oak spices. The finish is sweet and long, with the oak and oak spices treating your palate.

The sweetness, oak and dried fruits is complementing each other very well. It is quite good, but somehow, it doesn’t take me all the way to the stars… I will give this 83/100 (20/22/21/20).
