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

    Banff
    24 yo 1976/2001 (55.8%, Signatory,
    cask #2251, 284 bottles)

    Colour: Nose: pale gold. Mouth: ho-ho,
    this one is totally different, and
    truly unlike any other malt whisky.
    Imagine some new rubber boots, a lot
    of Dijon mustard, a lot of motor oil,
    a lot of bitter rocket salad, quite
    some apple peelings, asparagus peelings,
    green tea, plain grass, even wasabi,
    pepper… And not even one single
    fruity touch. In other words, this
    one is extremely grassy and austere,
    hence quite spectacular in its own
    genre. With water: same, with more
    peat and even more pepper. Unexpectedly
    Taliskerish, if I may dare to say
    so. Mouth (neat): aaah yes, this is
    something. Wonderful bitterness, grassy,
    not aggressive but quite, resinous,
    liquoricy, peaty and phenolic/smoky,
    lemony… This is big whisky,
    maybe a tad raw but so satisfying
    and ‘anti-commercial!’
    (wot?) With water: and the fruits
    do kick in now. Oranges, bananas,
    ripe apples, even blueberries…
    How excellent! Finish: giddy-up! Comments:
    just great. Sometimes we feel that
    some rants about closed distilleries
    are very vain, as many did not really
    make stellar malts, but Banff IS a
    sad loss. We’ll probably upgrade
    it from third to second grand cru
    classé next time we’ll
    revise our ‘funny’ ranking.
