  1. yellowcake scored this whisky 95 points Member Senior

    Old style Whisky! Really really great stuff.

    Nose: vanilla, creamy, salted caramell, a hint of l, have you ever taken a breath of air of an old good looking shoe?

    Palate: simply great, leather, oak wook, vanilla and a hint of smoke

    Finish (aftermath): long, the smoke is more intense, what a great Whisky, the flavour lasts forever, take it as the last dram of an evening and you will remember this evening for a long time

    tasting by Serge ( Whiskyfun.com ) 08/04/2015 : 

    Glenlochy 30 yo 1963/1993 (52.1%, Signatory Vintage, sherry, cask #761, 190 bottles)  It seems that the great people at Signatory always had a crush on Glenlochy. I think we can understand why, can’t we. Colour: deep gold. There must be a bit of sherry in there. Nose: more old Highlands than the aforementioned old Highlanders. Massive shoe polish and gravel, then rising whiffs of mild tobacco and some kind of oriental orange-blossom-based jam, plus touches of wormwood and verbena that add lightness and, hum, femininity to the combo. Maybe a little dust as well, but let’s see… With water: no changes whatsoever, what a waste of Vittel water. Ha-ha. Mouth (neat): smashing oranges, grapefruits, minerals and polishes, with a very oily mouth feel, a touch of salt, always this sooty side and always these herbs, both minty and grassy/green. It’s the texture that’s most impressive, whether that came from floor maltings, direct firing, old yeast strains or the captain’s age. That’s, in my opinion, the main difference with contemporary distillates. With water: useless water! Its rare that water doesn’t change anything, neither for the better, nor for the worse. Finish: long, with the oranges singing louder – especially bitterish zests. Comments: just excellent, but in truth, I liked Signatory’s first 1980 even better. And of course the precious little Rare Malts. SGP:462 - 88 points.
