Whiskey Review: Barton’s QT

Remember when QT was all the rage?  Neither did we.  But a couple of us broke into a bottle of Barton’s QT, a four year-old “light American whiskey” dating to the early 1970s.  The cap held for the last forty years, so we were treated to a snapshot of a dram that had sat around, trapped in childhood.  

QT tasted fresh and desserty, with a smoothness that matched the boast on the bottle.  Vanilla frosting, wheat fields, linens, a faint spiciness reminiscent of rye, cotton candy, clean finish.  Something falling between a mid-level Canadian whiskey and a Scottish single grain, all in all.  A touch of sorrow at the end, knowing you won’t be bottles on the shelf again.
