  1. hs305 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    [September, 2015]  I bought this bottle for 235 Euro in September 2008 and this is my last saved sample.

    This is faultless old school sherry as you will not find it in modern bottlings anymore (unfortunately).  These three butts probably contained oloroso sherry for many years (not just weeks like today) before they were emptied in London (not Spain) and refilled with careful distilled Glen Grant shortly after that.

    Yes, you feel it with every sip:  They had plenty of time back in 1964 and they did neither rush fermentation nor distillation.  It is perfectly matured and bottled exactly at the right time.  Simple stuff, but simply great!  Recommended to open with good friends, but do expect the bottle will be empty at the end of the day...

    Always remember:  Warm the whisky/glass to body temperature before tasting, you will enjoy the difference!
