Deanston Mill 8 yo (40%, OB, Seiba, Italy, 75cl, 1970's) Colour: pale gold.
Nose: extremely unusual and very interesting, starting on a mix of camphor and chamomile tea, getting beautifully lemony (lemon balm, lemon marmalade). There’s also quite some wet cardboard/old books andd then we’re back to cough syrup and old style leather polish. Very beautiful!
Mouth: excellent once again, with quite some lemon and mint in the attack, then kiwi jam, coffee and smoked tea… Too bad it sort of fades away after the beautiful attack, leaving only very dry notes of coffee beans and maybe black tea.
Finish: short and dry.
