  1. P.A.O.K.you_are did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Banff
    1975/2006 (43%, Mackillops Choice,
    cask #3324)
    Colour: straw. Nose: ah yes, this
    is clearly 'Banffesque', starting
    on some rather grassy notes as well
    as fresh butter and something like
    mustard seeds. Notes of fern, moss,
    wild mushrooms… Also something
    slightly metallic and waxy that
    reminds me of the old Clynelish
    12 yo OB (yes, great news). Goes
    on with green apples, hints of shoe
    polish, wet stones, old coal oven,
    cactus juice… Even motor oil…
    Well, I like this!




    Mouth:
    oh yes, it is beautifully austere
    and this palate is very coherent
    with the nose. Waxy, mineral, lemony,
    peppery… Maybe a tad cardboardy
    as well. The pepper grows bolder
    by the minute, with also notes of
    high-end white rum or maybe tequila.
    And again that metallic tang. Finish:
    rather long, compact, lemony and
    beautifully bitter (lemon seeds)…
    A winning Banff, in the 'old Highlands'
    style. My fellow Maniac Michel was
    right, Banff can be great. 90
    points.
