  2. hs305 scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    [May, 2011]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 46 that I bought for 268 Euro in December, 2008. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 95.  My notes state an extreme dark sherry profile with some coffee, leathery and of course fruity notes (strawberries).  A big and rich mouthfeel that is not tired at all after 41 years in the cask.  On the palate additional bitter chocolate and liquorice flavours pop up to flank the dry sherry profile.  Very long finish on all of the above. 

    By the way, not the slightest trace of sulphur  (in 1967 nasty sulphury flavours were unwanted throughout the whole whisky industry - please remember this when sales reps talk different bullshit to you nowadays...).
