I first tasted the two samples on Aug. 22 (Sunday), I have to admit that it may not be a good idea to taste blind samples after your team lost the game.  Ha Ha! Good excuse!  

As I didn't get them right, I tasted them again this afternoon.  Severe typhoon is hitting Taiwan right now. The whole city has been shut down the second day.

Blind sample one:

Quite sweet nose.  Must contains lots sherry.  a little honey, mellow, nutty(adding water).  Must be a speyside.  around 43%, feeling old but some robust touch.  Can it be a NAS malt? Maybe very little peat.  Some familiar feeling? Like Dalmore?  And the answer is : Strathisla 26yo 1967/1994 (40%, G&M) What? I know it's familiar but I didn't taste any Strathisla inside.  Re-taste today.  Not too much different than last time.  I guess I won't put money on this bottle.  It's easy drinking, but it's not performs like an old bottle. Score: 76.

Blind sample two:

Strong, Refreshing, some mint like flowerish nose.  Is it bourbon Highland Park? Not quite likely, maybe it's Scapa 15yo 40%? No No No, Wrong! the Answer is: Linkwood 10yo 1990 (52%, Inverallan's)  Strange.  Taste again today.  I can now quite sure it's not any island.  Maybe a little bit Speyside, but still can't feel Linkwood.  This malt finished quite long.  Taste better than nose.  Consider it's price, it's a value cask strength choise.  Score: 83.

  • After I tasted the Linkwood 10y 1990 ( form Stephen ). Weak <br />
    legs indicate the young age . The Smell is hint sweet than <br />
    another one from Blackadder Raw Cask Linkwood 1989 . But <br />
    include more malt style . Fresh , powerful and long <br />
    finish .This bottle is similar to another one I mentioned . <br />
    Above level , But I think it&#039;s no better than Blackadder . <br />
    Score 82.
