    Glen Garioch 1968 29YO Cask # 623, 56.9%. Color: dark amber; smell: first on roasted wood, then brown sugar honey water, latte coffee, Iraqi dates or glutinous rice date cake? It also seems to be in a high-end Middle Eastern spice bazaar, and there are obvious high-quality tobacco leaves, 94 points; tasting: the cubic of dried prunes & candied dates, very oily, almost like toothpaste, with some small spice embellishments afterwards, And a clear feeling of tobacco and minty, 94 points; aftertaste: medium-length, candied dates, slightly peat, 93 points; 20211231

    On the nose, rubber, peach, date, peanut butter, mint, wet earth, and beef tataki with soy sauce. Totally transfixing. On the palate, herbal liqueur, leather, and mushroom broth. On the finish the fruit kicks back in, mainly on melon and water melon, then black pepper and sweet tar. Incredibly complex, with so many layers of umami, fruit and minerals, accompanying the rich sherry and old peat notes. Really one of those times when you can say they don’t make ‘em like they used to…

    Nose- dried fruit, light peat, earthiness, a little sweetness of cherries, leather. With time, aromas of wood and resin appear.
    Taste - An explosion of dryness, soy sauce, smoke and sour-sweet raisins. Good old sherry with resin notes. Oily and sticky,
    Finish - A lot of herbal, ripe sherry, earthy, light notes of tobacco, sweet smoke and chocolate.
    Excellent whisky but too much expenisve nowadays..

    Old sherry whisky, close to a sherry bomb, but not too sweet, still intense and complex – fantastic!

    I struggle with these heavily sherried whiskies. Wonderful quality no doubt and depth of flavour's is astonishingly good but I cant score higher as the distillery profile is somewhat swamped
