Mars Malt Gallery Single Cask 1985 23YO American White Oak #324 58% abv


Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:

Mars Malt Gallery Single Cask 1985 23YO American White Oak #324 58% abv
Nose: This one leads with vanilla, toffee and a floral note. Then, strawberries, manuka honey, light oak, maple syrup on flapjacks, stewed plums. Water adds toasted marshmallows
Palate: Chewy toffee, honey on wheat toast, teak, macadamia nut, port, brazil nut, light pipe tobacco, marshmallows, creamed corn, stewed plums. Balanced.
Finish: Medium on burnt toffee, marshmallows, strawberries, macadamias, creamed corn, some drying oak.
Excellent. Another fine Mars from an American White Oak Cask.

Tried this just now, have to agree with you. Not a waste of money.

Have you tried drinking all 3 one after the other? It's the first time ever I disliked a whisky after drinking a previous one. Really needs a bit of a rest after drinking a different one in the series.

This one, I really love the long, long, finish. Awesome.
