Old Perth The Original Tasting Notes
Official tasting notes
Sophisticated sherry-sweet tones and subtle spice are the heart of this Original malt, giving way to warm dried fruits and honeyed cloves.
Ed's tasting notes
Colour: Natural colour; amber, or light gold. Coats my glass with slender legs.
Nose: A nice balance of sweet, natural malt, and sherried fruit; it’s a balance I enjoy, reflecting both the original spirit and the sherry cask maturation. Maybe some very light fudge sweetness.
Palate: Medium mouthfeel. Soft red fruits served with a light vanilla cream. Light oak and gentle wood spice.
Finish: A smooth, medium finish revisits those red fruits before ending in just a touch of wood spice for a warming conclusion.
