Single Grain Whisky bottled from a single cask is far from common, but it tends to be a fascinating experience. Grain whisky by its nature tends to be driven predominantly by cask rather than spirit character. This Port Dundas has been initially matured in American oak, before a secondary maturation in an ex-Pedro Ximenez sherry butt. On the nose this dram is like a cross between a sweetshop and bakehouse, a little citrus and spice cut through the sweet initial impression. On the palate runny honey, brioche buns and a touch of fruit. On the finish, toasted oak and milk chocolate and a touch of almond.
