    sergeWe already had a 27yo 1969 by Cadenhead (pictured) but that one was bottled at a
    measly 62.8% vol. J. This is another one, the round ‘gold seal’ was stuck onto
    the cap. Colour: amber. Nose: a little difficult because of the high power, but
    one can feel that we’re more or less between both worlds, with some varnish and
    chocolate from the wood as well as fresh fruits and nuts. Water is obligatory.
    With water: perfect fruity profile, with apples, greengages, gooseberries and
    just a little mint and olive oil. Mouth (neat): pah pah pah pah… This is strong!
    Heavy citrus and a good spoonful of icing sugar, that’s the high alcohol. With
    water: a dryness (cinnamon) but other than that, it’s the same kind of oily
    fruitiness again, with apples, sunflower oil, white chocolate and then, maybe a
    little too much cedar wood and white pepper. Finish: long, rather drying.
    Cinnamon and tea tannins. Comments: once again, the finish was a notch too
    drying and oaky but other than that, it was a perfect Glengoyne. Maybe third
    fill sherry?
