North Port

Postby Deactivated Member » Fri Jul 15, 2005 12:52 pm

Out of curiosity, I tried a CC North Port 1974 in the Pot Still last night. I hadn't expected to like it, presuming it would be hot firewater with a spirity, bitter finish. Nevertheless, I thought I might as well taste it while I still can.

I was very pleasantly surprised. The whisky had a delicate cakey aroma (a bit like Christmas cake rather than a sherry drenched offering) and a flowery, fruity flavour. The finish was very long. Was I being seduced by a rare closed distillery, or have others had good experiences of North Port?

I've only ever tried the Rare Malts offering a few times to see if my initial assessment was correct and I could never find anything earth shattering. It was a nice whisky but that was it.

I've got a Cadenhead bottling of North Port (1977 - 25yo) which is absolutely fab. The taste just goes on and on.
