Tasting notes by Serge Valentin (Whiskyfun.com): 89 points

Probably the year when the US left Vietnam.

Colour: full gold.

Nose: oh, one of those early 1960s Glenmorangies. Remember the 1963? This is bordering perfection, in truth. Marrow quenelles, bouillon, stewed bananas and peaches, menthol and sultanas, oranges, camphor, Pu-her, pink grapefruits, honey sauce, macha… Wow, really wow. No literature needed.

Mouth: amazing that it would kick it off with williams pears, at 47 years of age. You've even got notes of poiré (pear cider) and old Calvados Domfrontais (I know I keep promising a large Calvados session but no worries, it's somewhere in the pipe). Now this wonderful old cognac would tend to become a wee tad tea-ish after that stunning arrival, but that's nothing. There's some coffee too, chicory coffee perhaps, liquorice wood...

Finish: medium, with rather more sultanas and some obvious rancio.

Comments: absolutely excellent, just a little less 'high-def' than excepted when I nosed it. My, what a nose. If it was malt whisky, it would be Glenmorangie 25 yo rather than the 1963.
