A second extremely old grain from the Wu Dram Clan has landed and is similarly limited. Reports from whiskyfun.com suggest this is seriously good, with more than enough body and personality to woo single malt drinkers. Yes, 40.2% is cask strength.

Other reviews... This is well cask strength, mind you. Probably a little fragility in there… Colour: straw. Incredibly pale at 46. Nose: hold on. Who poured a few bottles of 1960s Bowmore into this hogshead? Where do these mangos and pink bananas come from? And the sunflower oil? The marzipan? The viognier? The white asparagus? The wee pineapples? The lilac and the wisteria? All this is extremely soft, perhaps a little fragile indeed, but just wonderful. In the old days, some absent-minded tasters may have described this one as 'being a little feminine'. Mouth: phew! No excessive tea-ness, no sawdust, rather these tropical fruits once again (just the same ones) and a sumptuous floralness. Zucchini flowers and honeysuckle, rose petals, proper Turkish delights, flower beignets… Almost a liquid miracle, how did this one survive this beautifully? Finish: sure it isn't very long, but what a wonderful herbal and floral freshness. Mango syrup in the aftertaste! Comments: one of the most floral whiskies I've ever tried, chamber whisky as in chamber music. An utter miracle. So, tell me, who did pour the old Bowmores while no one was watching? 91 points - whiskyfun.com
