Review #761 | /r/Scotch Review #256 – 1982 Carsebridge 33 Year Old “Old Particular” K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Grain Scotch Whisky
The Schtick: Whew that title is a mouthful. This is a 33 year old grain whiskey that is bottled at cask strength under the Douglas Laing line for KLWines in California.
ABV: 45.4% ABV
Age: 33 Years
Nose: Honey, caramel, toffee, faint fruitiness, creme brulee.
Taste: Thick, rich, dessert-y. Vanilla, honey, caramel. Oak, pepper, rich tobacco. Faint passion fruit.
Finish: Short to medium. No heat. Sweet creme brulee. Caramel, vanilla, faint cocoa.
Overall: Surprisingly, this is complex, sweet and delicious. Tasted blind, I’m certain I would not have pinned this for a grain product. I enjoyed it very much.
Thanks for reading!
