    The aroma is bright and juicy: fresh honey, flowers, herbs, chewing gum (fruit, strawberry), gingerbread, cream, white chocolate, citrus notes, dry oak. The taste is moderately sweet: light floral honey, herbal tea, citrus, chocolate, vanilla, slightly burning pepper, oak with light citrus bitteress. The aftertaste is soft, long: oak and herbal tea with honey. A little pepper. Conclusion . Exemplary bourbon age whisky. Consistent, smooth, solid and fresh. The score is 93 (n24t23f23b23).

  7. St. Pauli scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    An excellent old and dignified dram. It keeps on developing, it's such a pleasure to taste it. Goes very well without water.
    • Nose
      Develops from minute to minute: from closed after pouring to fruity herbal (barley, wet grass), fruity (gooseberries, peach) and creamy (vanilla, beeswax) after a few minutes, and after that getting more flowery (chamomile) and herbal again (aniseed, licorice). It's very delicate, as silk.
    • Taste
      Remarkable, first quite silky but on the mid palate getting more bitter. There is hay, vanilla, honey, beeswax, pineapple. Later it evolves towards mustard, pepper and licorice. With water, the pepper becomes more obvious, and ginger is added.
    • Finish
      Medium, on the grassy, creamy and fruity side. Like herbal liqueur. Very nice.

    Banff 36y 1975/2012, 43.8%, Malts of Scotland, Bourbon Barrel # MoS12015, 165 bottles
    Subtle nose that starts with some suppression and then very gradually turns into very aromatic. He starts on oil (motor oil), nuts, wet hay and herbs. A lot of herbs, but especially different types than you usually find in whisky. I think of dill, fennel, mint and mustard. Show underlying creamy waxy: beeswax and especially wax. Then some vanilla and only afterwards the fruit. Pineapple, orange, lime and a hint of coconut. So you have to wait for that fruit, but your patience will be rewarded. And it is not done yet, now I also get leather and smoked meat. Superb evolution. Ha, besides the wet hay also some barn smell, the whole gets a pharmacy side. Magnificent! Oak? Well, that is also (a bit) in, underlying and supportive. Man, what a fascinating nose ... And then the taste: here too you should take a little time, but then: equally rich and complex. Where do I start? With vanilla and honey for example. Or with the prominent spiciness (the mustard and the dill on the nose, plus nutmeg and liquorice). Then beeswax, juicy oak and light tobacco smoke. The fruit grows here too: orange, lemon and peach. And here too it has not been done yet. Milk chocolate, nuts and hay are not missing on the apple. Perfectly balanced all, elegant and full. More fruity and expressive than other Banffs from this period. Long, soft, sweet and spicy aftertaste. Impressive whisky. Cult in the making. And now I also know why this whisky was sold out before he was in the store. After the 1971 of the Dead Whisky Society , another Banff who blows me completely from my socks. For me, the best bottling from the range. 93/100 http://onversneden.com/2012/06/18/banff-36y-1975-malts-of-scotland/

  10. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Ecellent Banff, exemplary yet slightly more rounded than other expressions, thanks to the soft vanilla notes and fruits. Recommended.
    • Nose
      Peculiar and interesting, typical Banff so far. Wet paper, quite some paraffin and grease. Dried grassy notes and a little mustard. Hints of newly sawn oak. Chamomile. Chalk. Shoe polish. Spicy and aromatic, a little unsexy as well, but after a long wait, a faint fruitiness (oranges, pineapple) comes through, as well as some warm vanilla which is less typical. Great evolution.
    • Taste
      Fresh and relatively creamy, a nice combination of sweetness, soft bitterness and spices. Some lemon zest, a little herbal liqueur and chili pepper. Hints of dried fruits, chocolate and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long; with sweet vanilla growing stronger besides the grassy, drier notes.
