  1. P.A.O.K.you_are did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Banff 31 yo 1967/1999 (46.3%, The Bottlers, cask #3114)
    Sister cask #3113 by the same bottlers was much to my liking (WF 90) so
    this cannot be bad… Colour: full gold. Nose: this is more mature, more
    ‘old’ than the DL, with more vanilla and café latte on top of some
    similar herbal notes. Also candied lemons, marmalade, mint, eucalyptus…
    then apple pie, wax polish, old furniture, maybe touches of varnish,
    smoked tea, spearmint… It’s all very complex! Also hints of Swiss cheese
    coming through after a few minutes (or even fondue)… But no gym socks!
    Mouth: the mustardy notes strike first this time, as well as a lot of
    pepper and that Japanese relish that I’ve mentioned quite a few times
    already today. In fact, this is rather more extreme than the DL on the
    palate, with also a little sour wood, overripe apples, strong tea,
    curry, chillies… There are some fruits - and some nice ones - underneath
    all that spicy extravaganza but they’re having a hard time trying to
    come through. Stewed apples? Also cough sweets, growing bigger. Finish:
    very long and immensely peppery and mustardy. Comments: well, you could
    use this baby to season many dishes, including Indian and Thai ones. A
    mega-spicy Banff, not the epitome of balanced whisky but I know quite a
    few whisky lovers who would kill for this. Not sure I would… SGP:373 - 87 points.
