    Glengoyne 37 yo 1972/2010 (51.8%, The Whisky Cask, bourbon)  The distinguished German bottlers used to have these casks a few years ago, and I’ve tried some by the Whisky Agency or by Malts of Scotland that have been totally flabbergasting! That’s good timing, The Whisky Cask are a German bottler too. Colour: pale gold. Nose: we’re in the midst of summer and you just opened a beehive (while wearing a beekeeper’s outfit, gloves, mask, hat…) Stunning whiffs of beeswax, pollen, nectar, warm pinewood, and of course honey. Enough said. With water: perhaps the finest artisan pear cider out there. Mouth (neat): Gainsbourg used to sing that ’69 was an erotic year, but with malt whisky, that was ’72, as we all more or less know. No exception here, it’s a gorgeous blend of all things honeyed with many ripe fruits. Was that short enough? With water: ooh the tiny herbs, the mint, lemongrass, blue green tea, the wee bits of mushroom… Brilliant. Finish: medium, on exactly the same flavours. Comments: there were even greater ones, but this one’s awesome too. Starting to wonder if the distillers haven’t pour honey into their hoggies in 1972, for any obscure reasons. Honey overproduction in Bonnie Scotland? SGP:651 - 91 points.
