    Typical Brown Label profile; quite thin on the mouth but still with a lot of flavor developments in the glass. From the sadly lost distillery of Glenlochy.
    • Nose
      Dusty nose with orange marmalade, bananas and black currants. Cut grass and hay. I also got some cough pastilles (stophoest). Some sherry notes at the background. Whiff of smoke.
    • Taste
      Overripe apples followed by grapefruit bitterness. Touch of lemon zest and pineapple. Ginger bread. Old beeswaxed furniture and cigar boxes. Toffee and fudge as well. Thin mouth texture but still with lots of complexity.
    • Finish
      Not that long. Cinnamon and a little nutmeg. Hints of peat at the end.

    This tastes old but it is unusual to me in what flavours I got on the palate.
    Not a great one but really interesting all the same.
    • Nose
      Peat, butterscotch, black cherry, orange, banana.
    • Taste
      Initially quite sharp, I also get hints of gin & tonic which is really strange. There is some bitterness but with time it becomes sweeter wit a drying finish on toffee notes, lemon and cherry with the peat in the background.
    • Finish
      Short with a lemon sherbert fizz.

    tasting by Serge ( ) 08/04/2015 : Glenlochy 14 yo 1968 (40%, Gordon & MacPhail, Connoisseurs Choice, +/-1982)  Colour: gold. Nose: a really smoky nose at first, before oranges and perhaps ripe guavas start to blend in. In the background, old copper coins, tin boxes, old toolbox and all those sorts of greasy/sooty/metallic things, then more ink and carbon paper. There might be some OBE, especially since there’s also a little pinesap arising, cough medicine, leather… All that is quite complex, let’s only hope the palate won’t be a bit tired and flat. Mouth: tired? Not at all, quite the contrary in fact. Starts tarry and smoky, a bit salty as well, with an obvious ‘old Highlands’ feeling, displaying plenty of waxes and oils, a refreshing acridness (chewing tobacco) and all these sappy notes that we already found in the nose. And it wouldn’t even lose steam, rather remaining firm and phenolic/metallic, without ever becoming dusty or cardboardy. As for the fruits, they’re still oranges. Finish: granted, this isn’t the longest finish ever, but everything remains in place, with the salt and the smoke dancing in the aftertaste. Comments: not a surprise, but quite a bit of a surprise, still. Big fat malts never die, apparently. This starts well. SGP:463 - 89 points
