Whisky Reviews for Banff 1966 GM

    I'm a big fan of this one, less so of the price tag. Understandable though, as we're talking about a rare Whisky with close to half a century of ageing.

    Sweet, waxy and citrusy first. Some black pepper undeniably, 49 years of ageing within a cask leaves its traces. 

    Then going a little down, and coming up again with very creamy notes, lemon still present. Nice, smooth and long.

    N: Only my fourth Banff, so... Overall a grainy/woody, dry fruity, savoury-sweet number accompanied by yeasty vanilla, a few small mushrooms, a pinch of miso, cake decorating candy pieces and foosty glue. Not overly complex.
    T: Without losing all its richness nor certainly its vitality, it's plenty woody & drying [understandably], and becoming malty. Add water for a far more thrilling mouthfeel & development, one that swells and blossoms around the palate. Establishes itself as a malty, fruity and woody number, a touch oily-dry.
    F: Rather like a very decent old grain whisky with a long sustained woody vanilla finish.
    C: Not much wrong with this given its age, though you may want to sample this old timer at a whisky show rather than committing to a full bottle - given the price.Scores a B[+]

    woody. Not strange for its age, but disappointing for its price
