  • Score: 85/100


What they say:

A 1965 vintage Port Dundas bottled by independent bottlers Scott’s Selection in 2012. Port Dundas closed in 2010 and given it was very rarely seen as a single grain, bottlings are in high demand.


What I say:

Port Dundas single grain whisky, distilled in 1965 and bottled at 43.6% in 201 (hence ~ 47 years old). This was the final dram from the Water of Life Society EWB Greatness of grain tasting.


Dark copper gold, droplet tears


Toffee and caramelised cane sugar, molasses, sweet, raisins and rum


Intense toffee and caramel, raisins, espresso coffee, sweet honey, butterscotch, golden syrup, liquorice, slightly herbal fennel, sage and rosemary


Medium, toffee, raisin, and oak wood


Wow a rich, oak infused, single grain. This has spent a long time in the cask and has developed an intensity of colour and character from the oak wood. Gone are the vanillins and replaced by a deep rich herbal sugariness. In fact just drinking this whisky from 1965 made us wonder about the history it has lived through!
