Here is my fav...I will include my ramblings that I wrote..
Score 93 Glenlivet 27yo 1979 (43%, D&M Aficionados' Club Bottle, Chosen by Lorne Mackillop) October 2006. I have some more detailed tasking notes that I posted in the Whiskymag forum, but let me just say I love this malt. It is complex as all get go, both gentle and big at the same time. The mouth, nose and finish are all congruent, with floral notes, spice, a malty base, and more peat than I would have expected. I am going to start the score at 88, but it might even go up from there. Really, a lovely malt. This is my first of the D & M Aficionado's club bottelings, and if this is any indication, I am going to be a happy camper 6 times a year! Another tasting. The bottle just keeps getting better. The sweet malt core is exposed, and the whole array of flavors swirls around it. This is nearly as good as anything I have had. It is different than the usual malts that I score into the 90s, this malt is not showy. This is pure substance over style. This is the Cal Ripkin Jr.of single malts, it shows up and delivers, is just excellent, but is not going to toot its own horn. You have to figure it out, with patience. Not that you need patience to enjoy it; this is a delicious malt. You just need to humble yourself to it to recognize its greatness. Smell, taste, listen..shhhh..Let's say 93
