Despite its age this malt is still quite peaty. The lovely fruity aromas are much more obvious on the nose than on the palate. Very good but not quite outstanding. – Rating: 89/100

The fruity Glenlivet style is well present, but there is quite a pronounced dryness caused by the long maturation. – Rating: 81/100

Not your typical oloroso cask here… The nose is superb, but the ABV has come down to a level that gives it a sightly watery mouthfeel. Surprisingly litte wood influence. – Rating: 87/100

Caperdonich 1972/2011 Malts of Scotland

December 10, 2011

A very intensive Caperdonich with a rather dominant spiciness. Usually I am not a big fan of that, but here it is not disturbing – Rating: 87/100

A fine example of a light bodied malt that has accumulated a lot of sherry goodness during its long maturation. Despite its age the wood remains in the background. Rating: 86/100

If you like Black Forest cake, this is your whisky! The cherry and chocolate notes ot this malt are simply amazing, the floral hints are restricted to the nose. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy. – Rating: 91/100

Glen Grant 1972/2010 Whisky Doris

July 27, 2010

An amazing 38 year old malt that does not show its age very obviously. Almost entirely fruity and practically without wood notes. Highly enjoyable. – Rating: 88/100
