  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This bottle is a 60`s one and I have been after a decent sized sample for some time.
    I have bid on a few of these at auction but I have always been outbid.
    Worth a punt at the right price.
    • Nose
      85 85
      It smells like toffee mixed with spices including ginger on first nosing.
      It also reminds me a little of brown vinegar but in a good way.
      Some dried cooked beef note emerges and a faint hint of peach.
      Nice nose if a little distant which loses it a few points
    • Taste
      85 85
      Now then, it is peaty, creamy, toffee and spicy and these 4 angles are having a punch up in my mouth, so on the one hand you could say there was no balance but if you are like me you would call it entertaining :)
      There is a very slight lime note emerging that mixes with the spicy toffee and there is a an almost chemical sweet note which I am having trouble describing.
      It settles down into a classic 601s creamy toffee combo but the very slight chemical note which I have no doubt is down to OBE knocks it down a point
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is longer than I was expecting but still not long but it is enjoyable and sweet until the end.

    From the opening - the nose, we can assume that there is not, and the grain is a bit much further on in everything. So far, without evaluation, and forced to leave to take a break, wait ...
