St. Magdalene 1982 26 YO Douglas Laing Old Malt Cask, 50 %
Todays St. Magdalene is from the Old Malt Cask series from Douglas Laing. It is distilled in September 1982 and bottled in October 2008.
Nose (22/25): Very fruity, some citrus and quite light. A fresh summer whisky smell.
Taste (22/25): Still very fruity and still very light. In addition there is some caramel, salt and orange. Still a fresh summer whisky.
Finish (21/25): The orange was dominating in the finish. Actually I think it was orange peel. Some bitterness in the end together with salt and caramel.
Balance (22/25): This was a very fresh whisky! A nice balance from nose to finish.
I would definitely recommend a taste of this whisky! Although it is not the best St. Magdalene I have tasted.
