    Wow, what a malt. My oldest malt so far regarding the desitilation date of 1970. I can understand why many connoisseurs mourn the old bottlings. What an intense, multi-layered, perfectly matured and balanced sherry malt, a real stunner. When enjoying this dram, time flies by. A very special single cask close to the perfection from my favorite distillery, big cinema.

    An incredibly amazing dram. It adds layers of additional aromas and depth vs. the current 28 year old Glengoyne 1st fill Oloroso. Truly outstanding.

    Nose: gentle and rich Oloroso sherry, but not overpowered, honey, dried fruit, some pepper (surprising!), Raisins, oak with licorice flavors, mint G: clear sherry, nice round, firm body. Raisins very strong, some mint F: long, with clear oak, sherry notes are very round and well balanced, behind the nose very rich licorice aroma
