Glen Albyn 27 yo (1979), First Cask, 46%

Review #721
This is from cask #3952 and is bottle number 2 of ???. Very sweet with loads of white fruits in the smell. Crisp apples, vanilla and hints of grass and caramel in the end. Surprisingly little wood coming through here…

The oak is definitely coming through in the taste though. Some grass, hay and peppery notes as well. Very warming. The finish gets a bit sweeter. Vanilla, caramel and honey alongside the wood.

It doesn’t say, but this must be bottled from a Bourbon cask. Fun to try these rare old whiskies, but as most others, the price tag doesn’t even come close to the quality. A nice dram though (maybe lacking a little in the complexity), and I will give this 86/100 (21/22/22/21).
