  1. Man of Skye did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Linlithgow 22 yo 1975/1998 (51.7%, Signatory Vintage, Silent Stills, cask #96/3/01, 335 bottles) Five stars Quite possibly Signatory’s most prestigious series. They used to come with a miniature and a piece of the cask, which was probably very expensive to make. Colour: white wine. Nose: we’re going more towards the 1982s again, with an austere profile, very leafy this time, then with some moss, mushrooms, fern, and all things in a northern forest. Even pine needles. Some sap as well, lamp oil, candle wax, these bits of concrete that did abound in the 1982s, and some clay. A great sourness as well, around, well, sour apples. With water: it’s to be said that the wood was perfect. Celery, apple peelings, more moss, more things from that forest… Mouth (neat): oh this is brilliant! It really is like that legendary Rare Malt, starting a little jumbled and kind of orderless, before all is falling into places, herbs, resins and saps, dry fruits (cider apples), our dear mushrooms, waxes, citrons and lemons… I’m finding this splendid, certainly less immediate than the G&M, but perhaps (even) more complex. With water: please call the anti-maltoporn brigade! I’m just wondering, if you let lemon rinds and honey marinate in good whisky, would you get some kind of supra-limoncello? Have to try that one day… Finish: not the longest, but this candied citrusness is just lovable. Those things from that forest too. Comments: very hard to beat. SGP:452 - 92 points.
