  1. rottendon scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    That's how I imagine a long-matured bourbon malt. Vibrant from nose to finish, they say so beautifully, not overly complex but still quite complete, well-balanced without any weakness. A big movie theater!
    • Nose
      Immediately after pouring a basket full of ripe yellow fruit with tropical impact. After only a few moments differentiated, orange, orange peel, a dash of grapefruit, lilac flowers, some heather honey and still this ripe, tropical fruit conglomerate. Later cooked pears and now the oak also throws forth distinct spiciness, lovage and an idea wild garlic. The spice wins with cloves dominance, to Custard cream and we have arrived at the pear punch. After a very long time the furniture polish will come, the pears are now quince and peppermint. It warms up darker and sweeter, caramel and malt candy with cotton candy and some pups. We prefer to leave that!
    • Taste
      Very soft on the palate, slightly creamy mouthfeel, yellow fruit and a lot of vanilla on the tongue, black pepper and tannins on the back, acidity gently lays on the palate. With other slips, I have the feeling in between, as if a wafer-thin, slightly cool sugar crust lining the entire mouth. Great! For me personally, the Malt wants to be nibbled in small sips, who likes it robust with a lot of white pepper, is not disappointed with a big sip.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, very long, still with sweet quince and a slight hint of peppermint, underlaid with well-integrated tannins and the acidity, which gives it an extraordinary, especially in the age extremely unexpected freshness until the finish. A sweetness like thickened fruit juice is eternally on the tongue.

    No weaknesses, the alcohol is a perfect flavor carrier.
    Ingenious, confident all along the line. Dreamcloth!
    • Nose
      94 94
      The whole room smells of pine resin, pineapple and ripe, freshly cut pears, a touch of Earl Gray bergamot and oolong tea with orange blossom. Balanced yet strongly aromatic.
    • Taste
      93 93
      A veritable fruit supernova with clear light wood juice initially, but immediately it becomes supple and sweet. Quince and ripe grapefruit are added to the fruit basket and a few drops of high-quality vegetable oil.
    • Finish
      91 91
      The age of this Bourbon Cask-Kings shows in gracefully long finish, thunder weather, which lingers long with its mouth-watering fruit flavors.

    Barrel division?
    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/10452/glen-ord-1975-mt
    The small number of bottles, the same ABV & the identical color of the whisky would speak for a division.

    Fantastic mixture of fruit, flowers and oak - this can only Malt, unique, heavenly.
    • Nose
      freshly cut light freshly beaten wood - full of juices meets a yellow fruit sweet and sour smoothie from ripe fruit, oily and silk perfectly balanced between oak, spices and fruit, tangerines, ripe (here Fassalter) lemon, quince, mango, passion fruit, pineapple - There are also teenagers with flowers - oranges, roses, lilac and jasmine flowers
    • Taste
      sweet blossoms, oak with blossoms, fruit with blossoms, tea with blossoms, beautiful old lemon with blossoms, magical - a tiny drop explodes on the tongue - discharges a cascade of clean, beautiful, very interwoven and unique flavors until it looks like a shooting star creamy spice laden oak passes - the fruits from the nose I find all on the palate again
    • Finish
      I can say almost nothing - the salivation is so stimulated and the drop hits my nerve, it goes directly from Taste to rejuvenate - the oak is creamy on the tongue - probably until the next meal
