    1cl sample as part of the virtual Whisky Show Old & Rare Old-Style Peat Masterclass.

    My favourite of the night, by a whisker from the 1972 Glen Garioch Oddbins.

    Chosen by Angus MacRaild, full-term sherry matured.
    • Nose
      95 95
      Spectacular cherry notes up front, almost cherryade, along with rooty peat. Massively sweet, delicious and a wholly different entity from modern whisky.
    • Taste
      94 94
      Goodness, sweet and almost bewilderingly multi-faceted, with beautiful little explosions of flavour heading in all directions. As pointed out by Jonny McMillan (BBR), the bottling strength means you need quite a lot in the mouth to achieve the full effect, but it really is quite something - earthy, pleasantly sharp and increasingly savoury.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long, very herbal, eventually revealing celeriac which then translates back into the nose.
