    Banff 32y 1975/2008, 48.7%, DL Old Malt Cask, cask 3971, 164 bottles
    Fresh nose on garden herbs, minerals (wet stones) and heath, quickly followed by fruit. White fruit (apple, pear), then peach and yellow plums. Candle grease also called. Just like what it says. And a pleasant floral touch. Subtle smoke. The taste is fresh and clean: minerals, grass, hay, mint, hard pears and some vanilla. The classic mustard-and-dill combination is not lacking. Walnuts. Oak, and not so much, but never drying out. Beeswax and candle wax. Long finish on garden herbs, mustard, walnuts and a very small amount of smoke. Well, Banff from the seventies, I'm a fan. 90/100 http://onversneden.com/2012/08/25/banff-32y-1975-old-malt-cask/

    • Nose
      Light crispy notes of green fruits. Herbs, Hay, Vanilla and some vague citric notes and in the background behind everything else a little hint of wood. 
    • Taste
      comes in sweet vita hints of vanilla and honey that turns into a oaky taste. Spices appears and peppery tones takes over completely.
    • Finish
      Fading spices that returns back to sweetness and finally to a more bitter ending
