To celebrate, I opened this bottle:

Glen Garioch 29yo 1968 (53.7%, OB, Distilled on 27.4.68, Cask#627, Hogshead)

Color: Dark Brown.  Heavily sherried.  Lots of chocolate, tropical fruit. Not so peated as house style.  Seems to be rounded as year goes by.  A little bit smoky at the back ground. Very stong and robust, not like an 29yo at all.  Finished long.  Stong body.  Balanced well.  Score: 90.  Hey! you bottled too early, this one can matured for another 10 years but still not tired.

Rosebank 14yo 1990/2004 (56.3%, Blackadder Raw Cask, Cask#225, 148b, Hogshead)

Golden Color, Malty, some hint of fruit, white chocolate, soft, finish long, salty.  This one lost extramly large during within the 14 years.  Very strange, Robin noticed that, he has no explanation.  But this cask is the best among his Rosebank casks. Score: 85.

 Cragganmore 14yo 1989/2004 (56.6%, Blackadder Raw Cask, Cask#1969, 260b. Hogshead)

Golden.  According to Robin, this comes from an sherry hogshead.  Some hint of craming nose.  Tropical fruit.  Honey?  A little bit peat but not obvious.  Some orange feel in the back, but can't tell the house style.  Finished short.  Adding water improved quite a lot.  not only brings out clear fruity nose, alse help taste softer and finished longer.  Some bonus point.  Score: 86.

Glenury 30yo 1973/2003 (50.7%, Blackadder Raw Cask, Cask#6861, 167b.)

Hold by distillery's new agent.

Glenfarclaus 12yo new label (43%, OB)

Golden Brown, Sherry, a little bit smoke.  Tropical fruit.  Sweet.  Firm body.  Strong, robust.  Finished long.  adding water taste a little bit better.  Score: 83.

Ballentine's 12yo Pure Malt 43%

I don't know why they put this one as a comparision.  Not at the samle level. Score: 70.

Domaine de la Vieille Julienne,Châteauneuf-du-Pape,2001

Tough stil cough sometimes, seems revorering from the seruous flu.  Stopped the award tasting since Tue.  Ready for some wine!  Just got this bottle two days ago.  Still need some time in the cellar, but already very nice.  I guess I'll try the old vine version recently.
