Gordon & MacPhail Glen Calder 1949 40yo Blend
Nose: Fabulous, floral, almost rye like. Gentle sweetness and smoke. Soft vanilla, coconut and strawberry jam.
Palate: A bit watery, although sweet and gentle. Underwhelming.
Finish: An explosion of spices. Not fiery, but drying, gentle and delicious.
Comment: One of those typical elderly whiskies that you could nose for hours, but disappointing on the palate. Worth paying a bit for if you enjoy nosing your whisky, but not otherwise.

N: Big fruitcake, raisins, a little oak, and a slight floral note (carnations?).
P: Spicy sherry, cinnamon, nutmeg, slight spicy red pepper note, raisins, and a touch of cherry.
F: Medium long on raisins and cinnamon but the spicy red pepper note lingers along with some dry oak.
This bottle has gotten much better since I first opened it. Back then it was mostly sweet with little else.
