1972 Gordon & Macphail Connoisseurs Choice Caol Ila Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Islay, SCOTLAND
$799.00 Bottle
  • ABV 40%

One only to sell. The precise age of this whisky is not known, except for the fact that it was distilled in 1972. Excellent condition.

Other reviews... Colour: gold. Nose: rather subtle at first nosing but quite big as well despite the low proof, starting grassy (almonds and cut grass) and medium peated, with whiffs of both fresh and dried seaweed in the background. Gets then mildly resinous, with notes of putty and a little turpentine, walnuts, maybe a little sherry (rather fino), vin jaune, hints of rosemary… I wouldn’t say this is too coastal, nor smoky, nor ashy but beautiful it is, even if it’s more whispering than shouting. Mild pleasures… Mouth: good attack, a tad weakish but getting bolder after that, mostly on cider apples and lemon juice. The peat is obvious but not big… Notes of weissen beer, salted lemon juice, not too ripe fruits (goosberries), more green apples… A rather sharp profile despite the low strength. Finish: medium long, all on lemon and salt, the smokiness fading away. Comments: very good but as often, I believe this would have benefited fro a few more degrees. Speaking of which… 86 points - Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com
