Rather than hijack the "Platinum" thread I have started a new one to ask a question about the following bottle:
Old Malt Cask
Cask No. 655
Distilled Sept 1978, bottled March 2004
Natural Cask Strength 61.1%
This description fits with the Platinum range, but the bottle has the presentation of the normal (50% vol) OMCs.
It is also labelled as "Advance Sample" for Alambic Classique.
I have just the one of these and it will be used in a forthcoming "Gourmet" evening, but I would like to ask if anyone is familiar with this, or similar, presentations?
It just seemed strange to find a normal looking OMC at over 60%.
If anyone has sampled this one, I'd appreciate your tasting notes too.
