  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Another Cadenhead dumpy, cause we can never have enough of these legendary bottlings from the past. This Dufftown is quite 'nervous' and a little unbalanced in my humble opinion. But it is such a fun to be able to taste such old treasures.
    • Nose
      Definitely some oloroso sherry influences at first nosing. Followed by nail polish and varnish (as Lincolnimp says as well). But also wood resins and dried herbs. Hints of nettle and eucalyptus at the background. Old-skool profile, which we would call 'difficult' nowadays.
    • Taste
      Now more on forest fruits of red berries, blackcurrants and raspberries. Later on some meaty notes. Spices of camphor and rosemary. Toasted bread and roasted chestnuts as well. Quite a lot to discover in this old whisky. So leave this in your glass for at least half an hour.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Peel zest and lemon. Pine and resinous. A lick of minerality at the end.

    I jumped at the chance to get a sample of this, the bottle was a little low just into the shoulder which is always a risk but what the hell.
    The nose is lovely and it has a long finish.

      This smells honeyed with caramel and wood varnish. This also reminds me of some 50's blends I have had, sweet and creamy.

      Fizzy and slightly dry is my first impression, a nice dose of peat but the peat is quite sharp on this one. It has a slightly bitter honey edge to it but that adds bite.
    • Finish
      90 90
      This has a long, sweet and slightly fizzy finish.
