The Spirit Still
  • Carsebridge-52-year-old-1964-The-Spirit-Still Carsebridge 52 Years Old 1964 - The Spirit Still Carsebridge 52 Years Old 1964 Single Grain Scotch Whisky Review: Beautifully sweet but also fantastically proud of its grain spirit heritage, incredibly sweet, fresh and lively for its age. I could easily loose myself on the nose alone. The palate has a little bitterness from the oak wood and a zing of tropical fruit juice but these provide the perfect foil to a mass of white chocolate, vanilla, coconut and banana sweetness. The finish is a little shorter than I wanted it to be, but again for a single grain whisky exactly what I was expecting. 92/100
