Alloa (Alambic Classique) 46.1%
Distilled 1964
43 years old

Wonderful, fragrant nose with linseed oil, vanilla and arrack, yet a little prickly/spirity; light, sweet palate with notes of rum, crème brûlée and whipped cream, develops oak (but not as much as you'd expect from the age)

Score: 91 p

This is an example of what an "Alambic Classique" bottle looks like.
