Drams like this, with its smooth palate laden with creme brûlée and vanilla notes, are far too rare to burden with heavy-handed words, as Chaucer might have said. Here you have a bottle of whisky from a now-silent distillery, which means there is not only no production there any more, but the whole site has now been torn down so no more Port Dundas whisky will ever be produced.
The Great Drams Port Dundas 10 Years Old cask no. 800202, dist 13 Oct 09, bott Feb 20 (92.5) n23 a gorgeously soft, vaguely oily custard tart, with a little powdered sugar; t23.5 that almost lyrical light waxiness to the delivery that is so Port Dundas: god, how I miss this distillery! The sweetness appears to be perfectly measured. Mashed over-ripe banana and ulmo honey make perfect accomplices; f23 and elegant spicy buzz hangs on the delicate oil; b23 wonderful to see a grain whisky marketed at an age us blenders tend to thoroughly enjoy using it at. A grain like this will be found in virtually all top blending labs and this sample has the benefit of coming from cask that hadn’t at some stage been sulphur treated. So this Port Dundas at 10 is pretty typical as to how I was tasting it 30 years ago at the same age. Timeless. 48.2%. nc ncf sc.

Port Dundas, built in 1811, was once the largest distillery in Scotland producing over 39 million litres of spirit per year until it was closed forever in 2011. Situated in Glasgow, this distillery was an icon of the city, and of Scotland, being built at the highest point in the city before its sad demise.
