  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Positive surprise after the initially very quiet, dry nose, but it also blossomed. However, I cannot share some of the overvaluations here.
    • Nose
      Dry-sweet, teen notes from bags that have been left lying around for too long, some blossom honey and candied ginger, grasses, a hint of tangerine, later a little unripe mango, camphor, a hint of lime peel, pear later
    • Taste
      Lime peel, pear, ginger, cumin, papaya and slightly unripe mango, net melon, artichoke, zucchini, lemongrass, herbal honey, toffee, malt and oak nice and subtle but present
    • Finish
      Artichoke, ginger, honeydew melon and papaya, for the% halfway full, nice, honey, medium length

    I'm still amazed by the ever new waves of aromas that roll towards you. And that at only 40% vol. - that's how whisky works! For the full review, go here: https://halbendrinks.de/2022/01/17/brown-label/

  4. LordBellamy scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Time warp! It is very different from the many OA from the 1970s that I have been able to try. Much more floral, almost a complete flower meadow. Then there is a lot of old bottle flavor, which makes the dram really interesting. He gets 90 points from me.
    • Nose
      light and yet full of power, much more floral than expected, flower meadow, fresh, bright fruits (peach), orange peel, oak (cinnamon, cloves and nutmegs), candle wax (OBF !?), also a few Olorosos rynotes (raisins and balsamic vinegar) flash and back on
    • Taste
      very creamy, wax (OBF), again the flower meadow, with lemon and orange notes
    • Finish
      medium, gentle, round, here too the play of aromas is repeated, flowers, roses, some wood, orange peel, wax, old bookcase, some cardboard, subtle caramel and vanilla

    SergeGlenglassaugh 17 yo 1967 (40%, Gordon & MacPhail, Connoisseurs Choice, old brown label) Colour: gold. Nose: an antique style, fresh and aromatic, very different from the officials. Much more oranges (and blossom), touches of Grand-Marnier, a little grape juice (it's quite muscaty, in a way) and honey and then more flowers, between lilies and dandelions. Honeysuckle. Quite lovely, this nose, let's check if the palate won't be weakish as can happen with this old series. After a few minutes: became a little custardy. Mouth: there is a dryness yet again but there are also more fresh fruits such as peaches and apricots. Williams pears, hints of ale, barley water. Finish: of medium length, with funny notes of gewurztraminer. Litchis? Comments: it'll be interesting to compare this fresh oldie with another, much older 1967.
