  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    This has got to be in the top 3 sherried whisky I have tried so I am going to try some old Macallan next I have a 1950 and 1972 18 year that should be good competition for this (possibly)
    • Nose
      95 95
      The first thing to notice is that we have a crisp, clean type of sherry on this one, a very jammy whisky.
      Blackcurrant, raspberry, coffee & walnut cake, treacle sponge by the bucket load mixed with whisky fudge.
      After a few minutes coffee beans and plain chocolate with date slices.

      Basically it is a rich cake mix with dark fruit and about as nice a nose on a sherried whisky as you can get.
      Can the palate live up that sublime nose?
    • Taste
      96 96
      Syrupy, everything on the nose is more or less here and there is a very slight possibly soapy taste that dram-drinker mentions that on reflection I believe is coming from the rich sherry cask itself infused with oak.

      Nothing out of place, excellent balance, a basket of dark fruits with rich fruit cake and treacle tart with a few red wine notes and hints of bubblegum
    • Finish
      94 94
      Good medium length, getting dry but remains fruity and lipsmaking until the end.
      I also detected a faint hint of peat in the background on the finish

    DescriptionWe asked directly to Mr. Silvano Samaroli which whisky was inside these Glen Cawdor and he was so nice to go and look at his old paperwork, he could only find a couple but fortunately this was one of them and he told us this was a ORD cask! Must be out of this world!

    Info: lions whisky.

    Up a point to 96 as it was better than the Tormore 1966 Damaroli for Duthies.

    On the nose and on the palate absolutely fantastic - just the finish is a little bit behind because of the soapy touch - I don't think this is Springbank as I have never experienced any soapiness in Springbanks - sulphury etc. sure, but not soapy - anyways this is overall still great!
    • Nose
      96 96
      Tobacco, cigars, soot, acacia honey, fine sherry wood, spices, cloves, nutmeg, some dried fruits, dates, figs, brown sugar, hints of toasted bread, whiffs of old books - superb!
    • Taste
      95 95
      Punchy, oily, liquorice, nutty, good sweetness, more dried fruits, also plums, prune, dark chocolate, molasses, spices, hints of herbs too, more sherry wood - excellent!
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long, warm, just little tannic, there is really just a little soapy touch

    A very nice, rich and fruity Glen Cawdor, rather maritime and heavy on the sherry, without being too excessive.

    It is an Glen Ord? I do not know, but the flavor profile is comparable to old sherried Springbank from that period.

    In any case, va very good whisky

    Glen Cawdor 1964/1983 RWDuthie for Samaroli cl.75 43 ° GL sherry wood Bottle No. 307/360 Samaroli-Brescia Cork drive - Gold capsule This is a Glen Cawdor, though the gambling premonition could not be denied Glen Cawdor 1964! Color: Well, it's Dark sherry, which makes me feel like a delicacy of this kind of delicacy, so I do not even have a Samaroli Magic once in a while and I'm even getting even bothered that I do not care if I can remove it.Only eat 10 Hakata Bulls at the same time Beautiful bean paste shades of hints of bean paste Nose: Already! No more Rancio Gangan's cottage dark sherry! This seems to be completely swallowing the lady's Springbank Attach: suddenly GM-like caramel-style baptism.But it is accepted firmly, it is truly elegant briny aroma shower.In addition, an elegant bean bomb Indeed, the sweetness of the bean paste and the salty feeling are working, it feels like it will collapse at dumpling and buns head? What? Body: This is terribly terribly thick, is not it? What? It was never such a thing to let me think, a firm coating of sweetness of sum, but, as I enter inside, I will fall through with a shit! Dark Sherry has a feeling of getting through with this, just as it is highly likely to hit, it is a relieved breath! Is it feeling like a nobleman, a savory moonmun nobleman? Taste: Already! It is a nuance that still rock salt type salt in the plum trees rice cakes still feel like a warm rice cake feeling, a moderate bean paste, and a touch feeling that grain is too big salt with foul skill.If you feel like this, dense sherry wood It is a big welcome, and it is a subtle taste when I mistakenly chocolate received in the shop after accounting, put it in my pocket and melted.The melted chocolate feels like a tasty flavor Finish: The tight sheep 引き tearing his nose.The delicious sweetness when you hurriedly eat kuzuke (bunkiri) and got into the nose a bit, but its kudzu (cutting) is incredible Kami ... Although it is a kudzudo that enters the nose! It does not rise from the nuance of sweetness that is too rich, it comes down Aroma shower! Aroma squall! I am not good at Dark sherry 's Springbank, but I'm very welcome if I'm a cup like this ... Samaroli is dying! https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyharsnsfo2rc

    Tasting Notes from WhiskyFun.com (July 31, 2014):

    This probable beauty is labelled as Glen Cawdor, but it's well Glen Ord inside.

    Colour: mahogany.

    Nose: . sherry matured whisky UNLIKE any Contemporary sherry matured whisky Remember in the Old days, They Were USING Heavy sherry ALSO to try to MIMIC brandy, and indeed this Could as well BE a very Old cognac of very high quality, and even an Armagnac . It is stunning, I have to say, because behind the sherry heaviness, there are myriads of tiny organic and mineral smells. Marrow bouillon, parsley, cured ham, flints ... And then pipe tobacco, dark toffee, menthol, camphor, chocolate, prunes ... And then more and more freshly squeezed orange juice. This nose would beat many old Macallans, but styles are somewhat similar. You say paxarette? What paxarette?

    Mouth: ... exactly the Same, only as flavors It's not That Often That nose and Palate just Coincide All right, maybe more Coffee this time Coffee with Drops of Triple-sec.

    Finish: . long, and Superbly dry Amnesiacs Could think They just crunched a Square of chocolate with very high Cocoa content.

    Comments: I'm afraid only Glendronach still make this Style THESE days, even if They May not use exactly the Same Production Methods.

    SGP: 562 - 92 points.
