    From Whiskyfun,

    Glenlivet 37 yo 1968/2006 (41.7%, Duncan Taylor's Lonach) colour: pale gold. Nose: expressive and much fresher and cleaner than expected, starting with lots of flowers (dandelions, buttercups), pollen and fresh white fruits (peaches). Goes on with a little vanilla and quite some fresh butter, never getting woody. Hints of fresh mint. Not enormously complex but very pleasant and surprisingly young despite all what the angels have stolen. Mouth: starts rather light but not weak, with quite some wood now but it’s far from being unbearable. Enjoyable spiciness (nutmeg and white pepper as well as quite some cinnamon). Other than that we have vanilla, pecan pie, apple compote… Again, it’s not really complex but pleasant and flawless. The finish isn’t too long, though, but balanced, vanilled and still not drying. A good oldie that didn’t go off the rail despite all these years. 85 points.
