Because I'm in London at the moment I can't really join this live tasting.
I just have a few samples but not from the 80s.
Ealier this week I bought a Lintlithgow 26yo SMOS but I don't dare to open it yet.

No contest in my opinion, although I've not had Glen Eden. Loch Dhu and Drumguish are at least drinkable if there's nothing else.

Nose: very fruity, fresh, sweet and yet you can smell the bourbon influences. I find it hard to stop putting my nose in the glass.
Palate: hmmmm, again fruity, sweet, soft tannins, luscious. Dangerously drinkable at 51.5 %. The more I drink it, the more it's character changes, especially if water is added. I taste some peat too. Very very good again.
Finish: very long and powerfull, fruity again.
