Glenlivet 70 Year Old Release 2 by Gordon & MacPhail. The oldest Scotch whiskey ever bottled, distilled 3rd February 1940.

Single sherry butt cask #339. Released November 2012.

Nose: A mild nose-feel. The first aroma is of an old cocktail cabinet, with Sherry notes predominating; polished wood, soft leather and a trace of candle wax. Behind this are fruity notes, lightly baked apples (even Tarte Tatin), but also fresh orange juice, and just a thread of smoke or ash in the distance. Adding a drop of water suppresses the fruity notes and slightly enhances the sweetness (now tablet) and smokiness.

Palate: A waxy, teeth-coating mouthfeel; smooth and voluptuous. The taste is sweetish to start, then savoury, with a trace of salt ' might this be a rare example of 'umami' in whisky, the elusive fifth primary taste' The finish is long, with a faint smokiness in the aftertaste. Drinks well at natural strength. With a drop of water the flavours remain intact.
