G&M Connoisseurs Choice Millburn

Postby dram_time » Wed Jan 24, 2007 7:07 pm

Evening all,

Looking for some information about…

G&M Connoisseurs Choice Millburn, Distilled in 1966. 40%.

I have tried Google, and here, The tasting notes, TWE, RMW, LFW, every where.

Does anyone here know anything about this bottling before I drink it!! (its just a mini!) and has anyone tried it?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Millburn 1971/1993 (40%, G&M Connoisseur's Choice, 70cl)
Nose: Big, changes from oily/menthol/eucalyptus to sherry/sweets/fruits over time. Lacks some cohesion.
Taste: is smooth and sweet. A little sherry, a little malt, a little smoke. Maybe a pinch of peat. Unbalanced.

Millburn 1974/1998 (40%, G&M Connoisseurs Choice)
Nose: Surprisingly citrussy. More like a liqueur, almost - but much subtler and quite uneven.
Taste: Once again the citrus is quite dominant. Very little else to get excited about, I'm afraid.

Millburn 1974/2000 (40%, Connoisseurs Choice)
Nose: Slightly oily, then menthol & eucalyptus. Cannabis? Perfumy. Developing into sweets / fruit cake.
Taste: Very smooth, sweet & malty at first. The sweetness vanishes. Perfume & eucalyptus in the finish.

Not what you were looking for but probably a comprehensive overview.
