OK, OK, you beat it out of me. I took some notes on each, but they're not complete or easy to read. So I'll do my best to give my impressions. I think John Hansel said he will have his notes publised in the next issue of Malt Advocate.

This was the one I really didn't like. The nose was nice, but something about the taste was off for me. Too sour or salty or something. I was one of maybe two or three who voted it their least favorite, so in general people weren't as negative as I was.

This was my favorite of the night. Really complex & sweet nose and taste. The nose was powerful. The body was full. The finish was nice and long.

Second favorite. Most people picked it as their #1. I was getting scents in this one that I've never gotten from a whisky before. The first thing I thought of was Kentucky Fried Chicken. After some discussion someone said "Olives" and that started to stand out. There was some sweetness I couldn't put my finger on. I'd love to have another crack at this one.

This was okay, but I didn't think it was spectacular.
Mosstowie, 27,1979, 54.1%
Again, good but not great. I found the nose to be a little weak and the finish short (though that could be relative to the other samples). Some nice flavors, like mixed fruit and vanilla/honey.
Craigduff, 33, 1973, 47.5%
I think the general consensus was that this one was too sherried.
Glenisla, 29, 1971, 50%
I liked this one a lot too. The nose was really interesting. Powerful, smokey, sweet, custard?, melon? brie cheese?. It was smooth, but I didn't write down anything for the palate. It was the end of the night.
