Another cracker from one of Speyside's greatest distilleries, this time a 1966 single cask bottled at 43 years by Douglas Laing's Old Malt Cask series especially for The Whisky Show 2009.Tasting Notes (2)
Tasting Notes by WhiskyNotes' Ruben
Full blown sherry, with lovely notes of tobacco and cocoa. Chocolate. Quite dry with a nice savoury / herbal touch (parsley and mint). Balsamic syrup. Excellent. Water adds some raspberry liqueur. Mouth: the usual raisins, chocolate and orange liqueur. Drying towards the finish (hints of dark tea), with some liquorice. Mint again. Finish: very long, spicy and really dry.
It’s safe to say these Speyside’s Finest bottlings are all very good, and some are quite excellent. Around € 145 and still available from TWE.
Tasting notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
We’re almost exactly in the style of the Glen Avon 35yo now, only with a little more mint and eucalyptus as well as various spices. Maybe a little cumin. Globally just a tiny-wee less expressive, though, but great nose anyway. A little Armagnac-ish, pleasantly so.
Once again, more or less the same whisky as the Glen Avon with a little more oomph. Maybe a tad more both citrusy and mentholated, with more liquorice too.
Very long, warming. Same raisins and dried fruits as in the GA plus quite some chocolate.
Power to the old sherry monsters – and yet again the same rating, these bottlings are pretty ‘unsettlable’. SGP:451 - 92 points.

Not a patch on the '66 41 YO released a few years ago.......That one was still "in balance", this one has suffered a little with some distinct "taniny" notes on the finish. It seems to be thinner on the nose but otherwise it is a really cracking dram.
