    Depending on the form of the day, it is sometimes very closed and in the end very bitter.
    I had a more positive impression of the 50-year-old 68er from MoS: Much more accessible from the nose and mouth, lighter and more fruity with a great variety of aromas. However, the ABV could have been a bit higher.

      Fruit punch with raisins and plums. It adds nuts, dark chocolate, leather, polish, spice, some mocha & chamomile tea. Strong and complex
    • Taste
      88 88
      Medium body - clearly marked by Oloroso-Sherry & Tannins.
      Here, too, aromas of dried fruits, spices, nuts, leather and dark chocolate can be found. All this with a dash of cream.
      The ABV is completely sufficient. However, I wonder if a higher alcohol content might have had a more positive effect on the aromas.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long finish with hazelnuts, sherry and spices. At the end slightly dry - peppery & pleasantly bitter.

    This is really one of the most beautiful drams I have tasted for this money.

  5. hs305 scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2006]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 154 Euro in April, 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 92,5.  My notes state a beautiful balanced complex and rich sherry profile.

    Really, really good. I would say almost the same as the 1968 Old Acquaintance but probably just a little less balanced and more punchy. Still very great!
    • Nose
      Toffee, fruity, citrusy, bananas, sweet, honey, rich and complex, little sea breeze
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, smooth, nice wood notes, subtle sweetness, toffee, dried fruits, tea
    • Finish
      Medium long and warm, smooth, still a bit teaish
