    [September, 2015]  This is one of the only three whiskies my wife likes (the other two are a 31 year old Bowmore vintage 1957 (WB id 7701) and a very special blend by Jim McEwan).  Guess why?

    You will know this upon your very first sniff at the glass.  You feel like walking through a tropical fruit garden on a sunny summer day.  It is unbelievable how many different fruits you smell and you have to use all your mental power to stop nosing before your olfactory cells collapse.  I can sit for hours and hours and simply sniff this amazing whisky.  Why drinking this stuff if nosing alone is such a pleasure...

    OK, let's have a sip.  Wow, you bite in all these delicious fruits at once.  Now your taste buds start dancing...  And the finish is even better: long, bold and almost as complex as the nose.  Just a little bit woody at the very end, but very nicely.  By the way, there is surprisingly little oak around given this beauty slept in the cask for 40 long years.

    If you own this bottle, open it at your birthday or wedding anniversary and your partner will be immediately convinced that your whiskymania is a great thing.  ...and the empty bottle looks nice too in its heavy, polished wooden box.  If you do not own such a bottle, look for drams sold at whisky fairs (e.g. Limburg) or screen the menus of charity tastings.  It is worth every buck...

    By the way:  I bought this bottle no. 67 for 401 Euro in 2007, now I call that a bargain...
