    Linlithgow 25 yo 1982/2007 (51.4%, Murray McDavid, Mission Gold, 1000 bottles) Pure Bourbon? Let’s bring the house down! Colour: pale gold. Nose: this one is a bit more ‘neutral’ at first nosing and more marked by vanilla as well, but the general profile is quite similar. Less oily/waxy and rounder, but the resinous notes are soon to appear, as well as very great whiffs of crushed parsley and chives, dill, hints of pepper and wasabi. Also hints of pears and fur (chinchilla coat – whatever). Mouth: it’s much closer to the 1974 now, even if probably even bigger. Pepper, oak, vanilla, dried pears, almond skins and strong green tea. A certain harshness. Finish: long, bitterer now, with the oak’s sharpness lingering for a long time. Well, these two Magdas weren’t sexy at all but sometimes we do need a little... austerity in our whiskies, don’t we! SGP:361 – 88 points.

  5. Feusi scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Flowery sweetness, typical sherry notes and spicy oak. Very pleasant, complex, and the peat is found mainly in the long finish. Herbs and some bitter spices stay long on the palate, with around 50v% quite suitable for after dinner with friends to approve a sip or two.
