    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Glenlochy 35 yo 1980/2015 (48.0%, Signatory Vintage, hogshead, cask #3231, 71 bottles) A sister cask, and an even smaller outturn. Colour: gold. Nose: a little easier on the oak, and more fruity and floral, ala old Balblair. Tangerines this time, williams pears, orange blossom honey, and once again these touches of fresh mint, just rubbed right between your hands. I find this lively freshness impressive given the age. Mouth: oh goodness, this is honey blended with limoncello and lemongrass water. Yellow peaches, again these ‘un-commercial bananas’, and indeed a little more oak again, in the style of the previous cask, with some menthol and pinesap. The whole plays in perfect sync, so more The Beatles than the New York Dolls. Finish: medium, fresh, mentholated, and with more oranges and mandarins. Leaves your palate as fresh as a baby’s. Some Fernet Branca. Comments: yeah I know, 71 bottles… SGP:571 - 91 points.
