The Dufftown-Glenlivet 10 yo (40%, OB, Bell's, +/-1985)
Colour: light gold.
Nose: a little cold tea, then overripe apples and then a slightly dirty meatiness that’s not too entrancing, to say the least.
Mouth: complex, with some menthol and overripe apples at first sips, then more cough syrup and, well, more apples. Some kind of herbal liqueur as well, then wee touches of bananas flambéed… A very good surprise on the palate, really.
Finish: pretty long, full and wide, slightly greasy and oily.
