  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Colour:
    Molasses (the darkest so far)
    Nose:
    Round, harmonious, soft, with dark cherries, slightly sour-salty, some furniture polish, dominant soft wood and finest tobacco flavors. Full flavors on a very soft level, without bringing the "full spice" to light. As the color suggests, absolutely dark, harmonious and great.
    Taste:
    Spicy and unfortunately loaded with extreme notes of perfume. Spicy and salty! With bird cherries, enormous wood tannins, oblique notes of furniture polish, wood stain and over and over again this penetrating, lye-like perfume note - for us definitely definitely too extraordinary!
    Finish:
    Long - extremely dry and bitter (wood, coffee, nuts, liquorice ...) and again an increase of the perfume note ... actually barely drinkable!
    Comment:
    A nose on top level, but then unfortunately nothing more for our whisky sensation.
    77 points

  2. Slick did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Glenfiddich
    37 yo 1964/2001 (58.7%, Ian McLeod
    & Co, cask #10791, 200 bottles)

    Colour: amber – mahogany. Nose:
    starts on spoonfuls of strawberry
    jam and buckets of wax polish as well
    as quite some pineapple flambéed.
    The sherry wood is rally dominating
    here, which is unusual with Glenfiddich.
    Goes on with quince jelly, guignolet
    (cherry liqueur), then espresso…
    It doesn’t lack elegance in
    fact but not much remains from the
    distillery character. Mouth: the attack
    is on a very waxy and very resinous
    woodiness, with a nice bitterness.
    Alas, the tannins are starting to
    strike after a while. Lots of bitter
    almonds and raw quince (I now, that’s
    hard to eat). Finish: long, even more
    bitter and concentrated, with quite
    some amaretto and walnut liqueur.
    This one grew bolder and bolder with
    time – again, unusual for a
    Glenfiddich. 88 points.
