About This Dram
Well well well, look who got a fancy new makeover! A perennial favourite of the Dram Association, Old Perth has been seen in many different editions over the last four years. By the judgement of our members, the best ones were the sherry cask editions. Well, it just so happens that the folks at Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers (formerly Morrison & Mackay) agree, and now the flagship edition of their well-received series of blends is 100% sherry cask matured. Happy days! They also took the feedback that their sherry cask editions of the past were perhaps on the verge of being over-sherried – and as such the new iteration is much more refined and classic in feel. I think this is the natural evolution of the brand, and it’s never looked so good.
The below notes and score are from our Premium Members who attended the epic “Dram – It’s Good To Be Back” tasting on the 11th and 22nd of July 2021. After a long hard pandemic, we finally shared some drams together again in person. However, if you missed that event, you can see my personal first impressions on the below “Unbottling” video.
