    Also my favourite amongst the pinerolo and uk version, toffee chocolate Christmas cake and spices, orange, leather, burnt sugar with some great obe, excellent

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Really a completely different style compared to nowadays whisky's. Soft and smooth but very creamy and thick, with subtle tastes.
    Maybe not the upperbest or -tasteful whisky, but a great experience to drink this.

      Fruity, raisins. Some leather-like, and sone tobacco. Also a bit mossy, and nuts.
      Also the smell of an Underground-station or -tunnel. Also some chocolate.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Very very smooth, a sour note underneath a sweet taste of caramel and milk chocolate. Very creamy and thick mouthfeel. Also some coffee and nuts.

      Now a little tingling in the throat. A bit tobacco-like, caramel, some coffee. Middle long.
      Later on it's getting longer, more tobacco.

    Very old style sherry wood - really nice!
    Head to head with the Pinerolo and the UK bottling I would say this one is the best of the three - a bit fresher and more fruity.
    But for whatever reason the miniature of the Millburn 1966 with the map label is still by far the best - I think there is no regular bottle size available of this stuff.
    Anyhow all are really excellent!
    • Nose
      93 93
      Intense tobacco notes, cigars, toffee, milk coffee, old books, sherry wood, old furniture, hints of nutmeg and cinnamon, little bit of cooked oranges, jam - very good!
    • Taste
      94 94
      Very, very creamy, sirupy, subtle sweetness, more cooked oranges, jam, milk chocolate, wet tobacco, more old books, spices, pepper, fine sherry wood - great!
    • Finish
      92 92
      Medium long, warm, fruity and smooth

  7. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    These old brown label G&M bottles from the past are always very special.
    • Nose
      Fragrant. Dusty, beeswax and old furniture. Nutty. Notes of sherry. This nose is familiar compared with other old whisky's.
    • Taste
      Gentle and delicate sweetness. Black fruit intermingled with honey. Some smoke and mint. Complex.
    • Finish
      Medium long, lingering sweetness.
