    Caol
    Ila 12 yo 1974 (63%, The London
    Scottish Malt Whisky Society –
    James MacArthur, cask #74231)

    I think this was James MacArthur’s
    first series. Colour: dark amber.
    Nose (neat): extremely close to
    the OB, almost identical, with just
    a little more power but that may
    come from the bottles. Maybe also
    a tad farmier and less flinty but
    I’m really splitting hairs
    here. Just as terrific! With water:
    amazingly, it got even closer to
    the OB. No noticeable differences
    now and I’m starting to run
    short of superlatives… Mouth
    (neat): again, this one is even
    bolder but also slightly sweeter
    than the OB, maybe a tad more medicinal
    (camphor) but other than that we’re
    exactly in the same league again.
    Hugely salty. Wow. With water: same
    thing. Maybe the finish is a tad
    more drying but I’m trying
    really hard to pick differences…
    96 points.
