    Haven't encountered much Glenlochy in my whisky journey. Found this one to be quite good. Well balanced. Fortunate to have had a chance to try this one and look forward to opening the Rare Malt bottle on my shelf.

    Oh i had this dram at a whisky fair.... it was really really good. Bought another dram and stored it in a sample bottle. Really lucky to have had a dram that is soon to be extinct.

    Anything below 90 is wrong in my humble opinion ;-) this is just great: tropical fruits, some old style element and these weird metallic notes. Great whisky! I have written this on the last 2 drams of the bottle. I found it better then when just opening the bottle. With water it gives such a different aspect on the whisky: great to play with.
    • Nose
      Tropical fruits, mango, melon, pineapple, oranges. Some vanilla and cookie dough. Love it! With water more on citrus, menthol.
    • Taste
      Dusty, sawdust, tropical fruits. Little bit of black pepper, sweet honey and again back to the tropical notes. Some toolbox flavours arising. Is this typical or old bottle effect? With water more menthol / mint, less fruity but gives a totally different side of this whisky.
    • Finish
      Long finish on some chilli powder, oranges, kiwi. Somewhat of a metallic element, old toolbox in the finish as well. Finish is spicy.

    My Tasting notes somehow vanished. All in all I think that Serge's description nails it.

    tasting by Serge ( Whiskyfun.com ) 08/04/2015 : Glenlochy 27 yo 1980/2008 (53.9%, Signatory Vintage, Cask Strength Collection, hogshead, cask #2823, 231 bottles)  Colour: dark straw. Nose: starts with a big sucrosity but that may be the high strength. Plenty of tinned fruits, oranges, zests, all that coated with some putty/marzipan (as opposed to putty/plasticine) and then more and more crystallised oranges. I do not get much smoke, soot, tar or metal this time, but water may change that. With water:  cancel that, there they come, old tools, rusty old machines, long forgotten paint pots, then oranges and herbal teas (lime tree, chamomile, the usual suspects). Definitely old ‘sooty’ Highlands. Mouth (neat): bonbons, bonbons and bonbons, plus a bitterish mint and a little leaven, perhaps. A little ink as well. With water: perfect, don’t we all love water. Soot, wax, tobacco, tar and smoke, liquorice… Finish: same, for a rather long time. Comments: a big bodied old Highlander indeed. Water tamed it. Quality’s very high. SGP:463 - 90 points.
