“Who hasn’t fallen in love with single grain whisky yet – will”. And we
concur. This 30-year-old Girvan will be the oldest expression the
WhiskyDudes released thus far. The long wait ended with a 12-month
hyper sleep on a very active Oloroso quarter cask. Or, as we call it:
the finishing touch, to dot the I’s and cross the t’s. 30 years isn’t
nothing – so what to expect? This mature beauty will take you along
on a never-ending hike through old pine forests. Overwhelming with
the likes of honey and butterscotch. Dried fruits and apricots. Obviously
smooth and grainy, but not too grainy, given some time and warmth.
But do not be deceived by its luscious texture. The finish is slightly
herbal with hints of menthol, and warming wood spices. Gloves
and nutmeg. A typical grain with an atypical finish. Can I get more?
A true stunner.
