Mars Malt Gallery Single Cask 1991 18YO American White Oak #1110 58% abv


Review by Nonjatta contributor - Dramtastic:

Mars Malt Gallery Single Cask 1991 18YO American White Oak #1110 58% abv
Nose: Quite light. Honey, creme brulee, strawberries, sugared apples, fresh oak, ginger, toasted muesli, pine needles. A little water brings out toffee, vanilla and a floral note.
Palate: Toasted oak, honey toasted muesli, strawberries, pancakes, a little resinous. With water some vanilla.
Finish: Medium on honey toasted muesli, pancakes, vanilla, strawberry and a dash of dry oak. Really liked it.

I really liked this too.
After drinking it, I had a mouth full of water and moved on to the 1988 one which I really disliked after that.

Then later tasting the 88 again after giving it some rest made me re-consider.

This trip netted me 7 new Mars whiskies of which I only found their Amber blend to be mediocre and one left to taste.
The rest I loved.
I got:
Amber
Iwai tradition
Malt gallery 1985
Malt gallery 1988
Malt gallery 1991
Maltage 3+7
Kogamatake 89 Limousine cask
Cask 364 Single cask (not opened yet 0.5 liter)
And a new bottle of 3+25 and a small bottle of Monde Usuikyo
