      8/8

      Sharp, but juicy. Think hard candies, maybe Lifesavers, with a whiff of alcohol on the end.

      9/9.5

      Really nice. Rich and spicy, with good depth and lots of complexity.

      8.5/9

      Long, dry, spicy finish.

    Let's be honest. This is great whisky. Something that Macallan will never be able to replicate. Tried this side by side with the 1960 version, and the 1961 is noticeably brighter and juicier.

      This smells very, very nice. Quite intense aromas of passion fruits, mandarin oranges, and peach rose. So bright, so juicy.

      Can totally be an extremely fruity 1960's Bowmore, but the Macallan is not as "thick" or viscous. Still, this is absolutely delicious.

      Well, I wish this is bottled at a higher ABV but the finish is still great nonetheless. Lingering juiciness that make you want to pour another one.

    Color: Unexpectedly rich gorgeous series Nose: as after 66 as savory Attack: as if sweet flavor rotation is not as much as Movenmun sherry as Jo Benetti Silly age better than chocolate cake creamy Priority Body: middle class that is not metabolism Taste: Sense of understation The feeling of wheat is not killed but the best gracious cacao gish finish pale brini ginger https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyhars2gse4fg
