    N: There’s no question this is from a sherry cask, one that talks of [Nocino] walnut and ginger [Prunella] liqueur – [reviews of those amazing bottles to follow]  – and even Edradour [WLP] in part. Furthermore, I find this minty, spearmint-y and again, like the G&M miniature, with confectionary and [laundry] household tones and a bready new make vibe to boot. I think this may be as formidable as the Cadenhead 16yo on the palate. Let’s find out.

    T: Thankfully it’s not as fierce as I’d anticipated, just yet! Instead, we’ve a dry herbal-infused sugary-bitter-sweet sherry arrival, the new make-y spirit seemingly intact despite the influential yet sympathetic [refill, surely?] cask influence of 28 years. Peppery herbal bread on the turn,…..
    F: ,… increasing in peppery vibrancy as if it’s going to take off. Geez Louise!
    C: Not for the faint-hearted, this has varied appeal.

    Any old Glenlochy is worth tasting and the last 1974 vintage I tried was superb so anticipation was high on this one.
    It was decent but sulphured, you could smell the burnt matches, this was a first fill sherry by the looks of the dark colour and the taste was sulphured which was lessened by the rich sherry but not checked by it so it lost at least 5 points from me.
    Decent but flawed, if this had not be sulphured I would expect it to be at least 90-92 points, never mind.

    I love the label on this bottle.
