Whisky Reviews for Glenlochy 1968 GM

- 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.
Peat, butterscotch, black cherry, orange, banana.
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.
Short with a lemon sherbert fizz.
- tasting by Serge ( Whiskyfun.com ) 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
