    Bottled as a tribute to the old Campbeltown distilleries, I noted Henley Wright as someone connected with these replicate vatted malts - tOMoH?

    N: O&R vibes, fruit candy, fruit bar juice?, some grist, a lovely fustiness, glue, ppm hints,…
    T: Big-to-light Lochside-esque style spirit with smokey hints - unless it’s those Longrow’s from 8-9 hours ago?
    F: The nose & arrival suggests an older spirit, yet the finish demonstrates otherwise.
    C: Old then young. Further reading: lostdistillery.com.

    Dark version: Again I'm glad I could also taste the dark version compared to the rather humble light version.
    This one has a fat and creamy sherry signature while the sweetness is perfectly balanced. It reminds me on some great Macallans 15yo from the 50s like 1952 or 1954 which were great! Excellent 94 points!

      90 90
      A bit of dried fruits, honeydew, hints of sherry wood and whiffs of old books - reluctant but promising

      Oily, creamy, sirupy, liquorice, plenty of dried fruits, good sweetness, fat sherry wood, spices, chocolate and everything that a good sherried whisky needs. great!
    • Finish
      96 96
      Medium long, warm, sweet sherry, spices
