Old Perth Scotch Whisky was originally created in the early 1900,s in the city of Perth by the Thomson family, well known grocers in the City. By the late 1970, a rationalisation , sadly, saw the brand disappear. Brought back to life as a blended malt in 2013 by Morrison & MacKay as a celebration of Perth’s illustrious past in the whisky industry, the brand is the only whisky now blended.
Nose: Very mild at first, but after a few minutes it starts opening up. I find dried fruits, of course, mainly figs. Sugary sweet in character. Hints of bitter oranges and some alcohol.
Taste: Medium to slim body. Bitter oranges, toasted oak and dried fruits. Honey and caramel in the second wave. After a couple of sips I also pick up notes of coffee.
Finish: Medium to short finish. Cinnamon and licorice. Drying towards the end.
