TASTING NOTES (by Whiskyfun.com)

Colour: amber. Nose: much more sherry, obviously. Lots of coffee and smokiness again but also quite some old rancio (old Maury), smoked tea, orange cake. Huge notes of orange liqueur arising, as well as passion fruit, papayas, pineapple… This one is much more demonstrative than the 1968. Superb notes of pine needles, eucalyptus, camphor… Very old Chartreuse (Tarragones), old Montrachet… This is grand, no doubt, both complex and extravagant. Mouth: oh yes, this palate is just as fab as the 1968’s, maybe even better. Something clearly ‘Lochside-esque’ on the fruity side (both fresh and dried) but also with tons of spices. Great notes of figs. Really multilayered – please see the 1968, it’s almost the same but with even more complexity now and also a slight saltiness – like a beautiful final somersault. Fabulous whisky that keeps developing for ages. 95 points. (mucho gracias Bert)
