[May, 2017]  I had this dram during the Cadenhead 175th Anniversary tasting in Campbeltown.

The colour is yellow gold and the texture shows no legs and very late fat tears.  The nose is rich and complex on a honey-sweet and fruity profile (ripe bananas, peaches, apples and more).  The initial mouthfeel is warming and instantly coating with a slightly drying feeling (from tannins, no wonder after 40 years in the cask) that is not unpleasant at all.  The taste is nicely layered on sweet (barley sugars, honey), fruity and wooden flavours - all in a perfect balance.  The finish is long and repeats all the flavours from the palate with a slighty bitter note from the woods.  Some water opens the dram even further but be cautious not to add too much of it as it flattens both the nose and taste.

A very fine selection by Cadenhead and a worthy anniversary bottling.  I like it very much (except the price tag)...

There really isn't anything to dislike about this whisky - a herbal fruit bomb from the 70s, not too sweet, not too dry, with a good oomph and definitely nowhere near being overpowered by oak (thank god!). A very nice dram indeed, worthy of the 175th anniversary it was being bottled for.
