This fine, old grain whisky was distilled at the Lowland grain distillery North British all the way back on September 2 1991. It was matured in a sherry cask (cask #262058) until June 5 2017, when it was bottled with an outturn of 533 bottles. It was released by independent bottler A. D. Rattray.

This North British 1991 25 YO will be available to buy in Norway starting May 4 at NOK 1999. In the UK the price is around GBP 87.

Nose: Vanilla, strawberries, grape juice and a touch of raisins. A faint fruitiness in the background. With time it takes on an almost waxy and honey like character. More red berries and something akin to rich, red wine as well. Very nice.

Taste: Oily and full-bodied. Very warm and rich. Honey and slightly bitter oak. White pepper, ginger, and dates. Prune juice.

Finish: Medium to long finish. Honey, butterscotch, bitter almonds, ginger and oak.

Comments: Unusually rich and warm grain whisky. Very nice.
