Auchentoshan 35 yo 1975 Bourbon Matured

March 3, 2013

Even afer 35 years the wood only contributes a nice spiciness without overpowering the fruit. – Rating: 88/100

The wood has begun to take over here, but it still is a very fine dram. The finish is a bit on the short side, though. – Rating: 88/100

Longmorn 1976/2011 Malts of Scotland

June 7, 2012

A very nice dram certainly, a tad on the dry side maybe, but not quite as spectacular as some may expect from a Longmorn of this age. – Rating: 86/100

Classic old-time sherry here, gorgeous nose, strong attack on the palate, then getting a little timid before growing again to a strong finish. – Rating: 85/100

Glenlossie 1975/2011 The Whisky Agency

February 29, 2012

Rather unusually, this malt has a pretty ‘uneventful’ nose, but there is a lot going on on the palate. Not really a cracker, but interesting in a positive way. – Rating: 84/100

Tomatin 1976/2011 The Nectar of the Daily Dram

November 28, 2011

A very enjoyable old dram, the age shows in the finesse of its aromas and not so much in the wood influence. – Rating: 87/100

Bunnahabhain 1974/2009 A.D. Rattray

November 27, 2010

Light and gentle but yet pretty complex. You need to give this dram some time, but it turns out to be very enjoyable. The high age of this malt as well as the Islay provenance are not really noticaeable. – Rating: 84/100

Tobermory 1972/2008 Whisky-Doris

February 27, 2010

Very complex and concentrated, the lightly peated sherry fruitiness reminds me a bit of Bowmore. Wood tannins are surely there after 35 years, but not overwhelmingly strong. – Score: 88/100
