The cork disintegrated on trying to open this miniature Red Hackle.
Not a promising start.
Several old bottles of whisky I’ve picked up along the way have also started to deteriorate – leaving a stale musty taste behind.
Red Hackle had only a faint whiff of decay – along with some sherried depth & a teaser of tabacco.
Silky smooth mouthfeel,
The finish had an engaging prickly dryness topped off with a smidgen of smoke.
Red Hackle has held it’s delights very well over the decades.
Surprisingly so – as the internet suggests my bottle is from the 1960’s!
A charming dram.
