  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [July, 2007]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 71,50 Euro in June, 2006.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state a delicate and complex dram that takes its time to be explored in full detail. Not to be tasted when in a rush!

  2. Jeep51 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    An old malt who has lost his passion but has gained balance. Drink alone. A pretty 88
    • Nose
      A delicate fruity, citrus fruit. It's slightly sour, a little dried coconut and pineapple. A little flat and lacking punch.
    • Taste
      Despite the attack a little soft, there is more power and all the better. The fruits are less acidulous with a mixture of yellow fruits and wax. A lot of wax. Not a bit of wood. A little sweet spices. Very classy and goes alone.
    • Finish
      Relatively long. Saline and a little spicy: chili and ginger surely.

    Wow the 1968 cask, what a classic! When you buy something like this to drink for a special occasion you have to savor each ounce. It`s not soda pop or some cheap knock off you know. This is a antique and must be handled carefully, much like an expensive vase or sculpture. Love the 60`s!
