  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A re taste after 4 years for a h2h.
    A very good whisky but this sample from a different bottle to last time is down a few points, it feels a little harsh to me, even with a few drops of water.
    still a nice fruit nose on show here.

    *Speechless*
    • Nose
      Talk about balanced and well-integrated. It's waxy, there's some furniture polish and leather, and light hints of aniseed and mint as well. Baking spices. A plethora of red and tropical fruit and subtle citrus notes. Strawberry marmelade, brambles and orange zest, but also mango and tangerine. Finally some light floral notes. Superb.
    • Taste
      My god, this is fruity. Great refill sherry influence. Never overpowering and always in balance with the spirit. More tangerine, subtle grapefruit and vibrant orange juice. But there's more than just fruit. There's a touch of leather, tobacco and a wee bit of menthol.
    • Finish
      Long, with lingering leathery notes, as well as some light citrus and a whiff of milk chocolate.

    A few words to describe the malt best: fruity, waxy, finest old sherry and maybe a hint of smoke? A few drops of water does not harm. Glorious dram, i would trade a lot of bottles to get just one of these. Crazy stuff!!

    But 95 for palate & finish average.
    Note
    The Macallan 1952 probably would have come 2nd if the nose had scored similar to the palate and finish, it would be unfair to push it any further down the pecking order and it was, along with the Glen Cawdor 1964 the only whisky I gave a 96p for the palate. It is where it is because the nose let it down and had a burnt off note I did not like but the taste was lovely.

  6. VISION_CHEN scored this whisky 96 points Member Senior

    Smell: This is very powerful, charming, and expressive, sweet, clean, and just right alcohol feel, a lot of citrus, melon herbs, berry juice, there is a super high balance between the aroma, five After a few minutes, the chocolate is released, and what really hits your nose is that full of fresh passionate juice and the gentle rouge puff fragrance, which reminds me of the autumn sunshine.

    Drinking: The wine has a very good feeling of oil and wrapping. The taste buds are top-notch, clear passion fruit, delicious and juicy, with a clean herbal aroma, it is almost full of fragrance, and it makes people squirm and lick teeth. . The super long rhyme lingers in the mouth.

    Sense: The intracranial orgasm reminds me of the most beautiful times in my life, those simple, happy, and pure.

    A masterpiece. Less sherry than other 1972 Longmorn but a crazy pleasure.
    Can be even 94.
    • Nose
      Very nice velvety sherry.
      Big fruit, big wood, big camphor. The Trinity is here.
      Plum, currant, green pineapple, papaya, passion fruit. Kiwi.
      Camphor, mint. Fresh.
      Black pepper.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is softer and controlled.
      Wood is more present with spices. Pepper, nutmeg.
      The fruit stands out on the exoticism. Passion fruit and pineapple first and foremost.
      The whole is wrapped in a superb oily camphor.
    • Finish
      Long finish on fruit, rum, camphor, spices. Sublime.
