    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 196 bottles from cask 4485
    This cask was filled only two years after the distillery was opened in ‘the highest town in Scotland’. This is the second cask from 1967 we have been lucky enough to secure, and it has yielded a mere 196 bottles. The colour is deep amber, although it comes from an American cask. The nose is full of ginger – stem and powdered – to start with, then tablet, dried apricots and almonds (and someone suggested Dutch sweet and sour sauce). The flavour at full strength is pleasant, fragile, oaky and surprisingly salty. Water brings out linseed oil and dry putty, with a trace of cinnamon, billards chalk, garlic and cold black coffee! Hugely complex. The flavour at reduced strength is like liquid sugar, incredibly smooth and compex, with traces of scented wood and a very long finish. An experience.

    [October, 2007]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 145 Euro in March, 2007.

    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.  I took no notes.

    • Nose
      Nose: Good smell of tea with a nice spoon of honey. A lot of flowers too (roses). Very sweet white fruits. The more it opens and more herbaceous freshness is present. The wood is also appearing.
    • Taste
      Palate: we feel the weight of the years in the texture, it is oily, almost sweet. Its good ! There is a pretty powerful chocolate. We find roses, wood, spices a bit too spicy and invasive especially in the 2nd part of the mouth, after the small plant recall.
    • Finish
      Finale: long and astringent on spices and dark chocolate. A cool return after a few minutes

    Ripe and powerful. Superb combination of balance and material
    • Nose
      menthol. Vegetal. Salted butter caramel. Melted butter. Then notes of wax, encaustic, old furniture
    • Taste
      Suave and rich. In agreement with the nose. More wax, a more discreet floral. A lot of scale
    • Finish
      Powerful. Intensely long

  5. hartist scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very nice dram that earns a lot to be generously ventilated before any tasting. But then!.
    • Nose
      Great freshness despite age, with roundness and richness. Fruit of the orchard (apples, pears) but also exotic (papayas, litchees), grassy effluents, floral (the powder of my grandmother's rose), a little earthy too (humus, old leather).
    • Taste
      The mouth remains fresh while being fleshy and rather complex. Gourmet notes of fresh and exotic fruits, spices (ginger, cinnamon), citrus fruits (oranges in zest, candied) embellished by a grassy austerity (mountain liquor) and crossed with a subtle influence of smoke.
    • Finish
      Rather long on a beautiful compote of bitter oranges, pepper and smoke.
