A trace of smoke provides more depth…
Old Parr Superior Duty Free Blended Whisky 750ml 43%
From MacDonald Greenlees Pty Ltd, another powerhouse producer within the DCL group of companies.
And I have to say, even up until the late 1990’s, Old Parr or Grand Old Parr was a very treasured brand in the Australian market.
Old Parr Superior was first released in 1989, but only lasted for a few years. And was mainly sold in the Americas, hence the 750ml. This is a duty free edition as well.
Gelndullan is the dominant malt used in this blend.
From Whiskybase, “Chocolate, vanilla, apples, citrus fruits and quite some spices. Quite ordinary, but very well executed. Mouth feel is pretty full, while trace of smoke provides more depth. A hint of soap is the only downside.
Finish: Fruits on the front now: apples, white grapes, citrus fruits. Some honey and a hint of peat”.
NB: Condition of bottle and packaging.
