    [March, 2017]  Usually the quality of these old CC bottlings is mixed as G&M
    never really cared in that times.  This stuff was done to be emptied on
    the spot and I am sure no one back in 1983 imagined in his wildest
    dreams that 35 years later people discuss it for hours. And this dram is a good example.  The nose is okay, but not really
    impressive.  It is very sweet with some hints of a refill sherry cask and a
    little OBF (old bottle flavour), but it takes its time to open up.  The
    initial taste is quite perfumy (some would call this soapy) but luckily
    this unpleasant flavour goes away the longer you keep the malt in an
    open glass.  After that the body is significantly better and the finsh
    even good.  It offers a nice nutty aromas profile and hints of dark
    chocolate.

    It is okay to drink (leave it open for a while to let the perfumy
    notes pass), but nothing to remember.  As I stated before:  Exactly the
    way as it was meant to be back in 1983...

    • Nose
      88 88
      moldy (almost rotten) cellar, wet cardboard, OBF en masse ... homemade vegetable broth, not quite fresh mushrooms, some sherry mixes in the background
    • Taste
      84 84
      At first it gets a bit watery, but then gains strength and spreads warming in the mouth, caramelized malt, apricot
    • Finish
      87 87
      would give him more than 40% (as so often with the old brownies), dextrose
