Dimple Scotch Whisky, Blend, 70 Proof

On 1st January 1980 the UK adopted the European ABV system over the older Sikes method.

To convert proof to ABV multiply by 4 & divide by 7 – giving you 40%.

This bottle of Dimple – courtesy John Haig & Co Ltd Distillers, Markinch – is therefore at least 41 years in the bottle.

Age hasn’t been kind.

It’s fusty, flat & a bit lifeless.

Enjoy your whisky freshly bottled – before the sparkle fades.
