Scotch whisky 1885, Imported by ME Bellows’ Son NYC

RRP £2,000 Est

Tasting whisky of this age is an experience and a privilege rather than a pleasure. This mostly smelled of mothballs and creosote, but on the palate there were some tropical fruits underlying the eucalyptus and tar. There was still a good structure and a finish that lasted quite a while.
