    Glen Cawdor 32 yo 1951 (46%, Samaroli, 120 bottles, +/-1983)
    Glen Cawdor, despite being used for various distilleries in recent
    times, was often said to be Springbank in the old days. Colour: straw.
    Nose: hamazing, as they say. Indeed there are these notes of Iberic ham,
    mixed with some putty and almond oil as well as a little walnut liqueur
    and very obvious coastal notes (kelp, oysters…) Also even more pu-erh
    tea than in the Rundlets and Whatever, gasoline, a little ink, a great
    mustiness (humus, old wine cellar) and a whispering smoke that reminds
    me of some very old Talisker. It's all extremely complex and, as
    expected, truly magnificent. Mouth: a fabulous phenolic and coastal
    attack, unusually peaty for Springbank (was Springbank much peatier in
    the early 195Os?), very mineral, carbolic so to speak, tarry,
    magnificently acrid (yes that's possible), with some citrus fruits
    emerging after a few seconds, smoked tea, citrons, limes, angelica…Well,
    one may like to call the anti-maltoporn brigade at this point! Finish:
    incredibly long and chewy, with some roots, a feeling of peated turnips
    (Baldrick would have done that) and touches of salt. Very tarry
    aftertaste. Comments: quintessentially glorious! (wot?) Even if the
    acridness may scare a few tasters - but how many bottles do remain today
    anyway? SGP:464 - 95 points.
