Diageo, Port Dundas 52-year-old

RRP £1,999.99

Port Dundas closed its doors in 2011 and was demolished, so unlike Port Ellen or Brora (both also owned by Diageo), it cannot be revived. Grain whisky does very well with long ageing, and this expression is no exception. There are aromas of freshly sawn wood, oats, honey and condensed milk. It is a delicate whisky with florality and musty violets on the back palate. The finish has dark fruits like compote, with touches of nuts.
