Benrinnes 27 Year Old (1984). Carn Mor. Cask 2269, 57.6%

Strange are the ways of whisky. Had both a Benrinnes and a Carn Mor bottling quite recently and liked both. So turned to this, one of the samples brought back from the whisky festival, with high hopes.

Cereal/spirit on the nose, oaky mouth and finish, a bit of burn. Opens up slightly with a drop of water— just maybe there's some sherry in there too. Overall though: disappointing.
