    [March, 2018]  It is Easter weekend so it is time for some special drams, this year I selected some rare vintages from Gordon&MacPhail out of their Speyside Collection.  No, I did not buy these expensive bottles as their price is simply absurd for a drinker (not sure if it is justified for a collector or investor either, but that is another story).  So I just bought a sample... 

    The colour is old gold (what is quite pale for a 47-years maturation in a first fill sherry cask) and the texture shows a fat sticky ring that very late builds medium tears with slow legs.  The nose offers a herbal-driven profile with strong eucalyptus aromas and some fruits and honeys.  Not bad but a little unbalanced with that herbal spike, at least for my tastes (whoever prefers such herbal drams might see this different).  The whisky arrives warming but not very much coating in the mouth with minor drying moments from old woods (a little cardboardy).  The taste is nicely layered on fine sherry flavours like nuts, almonds, chocolate, oranges and some hints of smoke.  This is truly delicate, I like it.  The finish is rather long with more mentholy-eucalyptus flavours again but not as unbalanced as is the nose.  Water turns the dram smoother and more chocolatey, I like it best with some drops added. 

    An interesting old whisky with a nose that is not my favourite but a very fine taste (for my buds).  As a drinker I am willing to pay up to 250 Euro for such a whisky - anyone out there that sells a bottle for that price (no, just joking)...

    PS:  By the way, this bottling was done from a first fill sherry butt no. 4645 that yielded 533 bottles (according to G&M).

    Pure pleasure. I am really excited! 92 points!
    • Nose
      What a fruity and sweet sherry nose! Raisins and grape and cheese sticks. Plums and a touch of matches. Marzipan. Sugared nuts. Only after a while does the oak come on. Without displacing anything, she joins in. She brings a lot of herbs with her.
    • Taste
      Sweet ... So sweet! And full, chocolatey. Cherry, grape juice, cider, currant punch - all mixed together. Rum-Grape-Nut chocolate. Hazelnuts. The taste is juicy and is slowly, very slowly, drier.
    • Finish
      A full chocolate stays on the palate for a long time, together with the grape juice.

    In fact, I also claim to find some typical Longmorn, especially the anise / sage and also the pointed, tropical fruit, nice to discover something after all this time.
    Big Warning: Losing the most of all the old that day probed by far the most, got an almost disgusting nose that only smelled of sweaty sock and gym, probably the mentioned cheese above which unfortunately has turned into the negative, I'm not exaggerating! It sank from 93 to 91. Because in the mouth he loses significantly less.
    • Nose
      Extreme fine cheese notes, blue mold and Parmesan first in the nose, crazy, then carnation, licorice, but then goes over after a while suddenly in concentrated pineapple juice, cinnamon, some anise and juicy blood orange, Nesquick-Kako scattered across the floor, brown sugar and nice leather freshly tanned
    • Taste
      Very concentrated and full in the mouth, especially for the 43%, pineapple juice is right back, blood orange, grapefruit and brown sugar, anise and sage are found, dark chocolate, heather and leather, licorice, mint and apple peel, in the beginning he has a little less body, is more pointed and narrow, but with each sip gains more volume
    • Finish
      Long, licorice and anise are dominant with the blood orange and herbal honey behind, sage, thyme, beautiful malt and camphor

    Sweet, vinous, very successful, with no real mistakes, except for a very restrained sulfur influence, if you are really looking for. Tasted in the Brühler whisky house on 9.12.2017. Gordon & MacPhail Speyside Collection Tasting.
