North Star Spirits Port Dundas Tasting Notes

Posted: January 10, 2017 in Port Dundas, Scottish Grain Whisky

North Star Spirits Port Dundas 2004 (12 year old) 58.8%

Bourbon Hogshead/ Dist: 2004 Btl: 2016/ Tasted: Nov 2016

The nose is a little oak aged vodka-like, which isn’t a surprise given its age. However it does have some pleasant dried fruit and crisp grainy notes along with a touch of lemon, charred oak and sweet cereal.

The palate is soft with vanilla laced dried oily bananary fruit, sweet cereal and charred oak. Gentle but biting grain spices come through on the middle. Long and remaining spicy with lingering dried fruit, lemon, cereal and oak. A pleasant grain, which unfortunately is a little too expensive £46.95 for it’s level of complexity.
