Re: What is you oldest bottle?
Gee...I have nothing super old right now....
Here is the tie..
Linlithgow 1975 28yo (45%, Blackadder) X 2
Linlithgow 1975 24yo (49.7%, Signatory Vintage) 1
Here are my tasting notes and thoughts from the oldest bottle I have owned, my birth year....
Score 81 Strathisla 37yo 1965 (43%, Mackillops Choice) 2005 B-day malt. Same year as I. Tons of wood, lots of sherry. Not the most balanced malt, but a good year, 1965. I was thinking that perhaps each year I would try to get a bottle from my birth year, but I am having second thoughts. It would be very expensive, and increasingly so over time. Second, it is rare that such an old malt/bottle will hold up over time, making my B-day malts more special than tasty. Tasty is good! Best to pick out something that I am really going to love.
Thinking of picking up another 65 for this year, perhaps a single grain I saw at Binnys..
