Macallan Glenlivet-1949-50 year old Decanter
Bottled in 1999 for a private company in Japan.
One of 160 decanter. cask no. 852. In eight sided Baccarat decanter. -
"...Mouth: Resinous, waxy, full of dark fruits, crystallised citrus rind, motor oil, herbal peat, coal and tar liqueur. It's surprisingly fat, emphatic and rich on the palate given the ABV. A velvety, verging on oily, mouthfeel. Becomes increasingly meaty with notes of beef stock, heather, olive oil and black pepper. Some tropical fruits lurking in the depths as well. Finish: A good length with notes of strong tea, lemon balm, chamomile, earl grey, pipe tobacco, cough medicine and some soft, dark fruits. Comments: A great privilege to try a rather historic and fascinating bottling. I suppose you could say it's a tad disappointing given the age and provenance but it is an old and somewhat fragile whisky after all. Still, let's not split hairs, it's still a beautiful and hugely elegant old dram." (5 Stars-Whiskyfun)

麥卡倫格蘭利威—1949—50年水晶瓶
「......口味:樹脂、蠟,富含深色水果、蜜餞柑橘皮、機油、草本泥煤、煤和焦油烈酒。在此酒精度下,味道能如此飽和、有力和豐富,令人驚訝。口感如絲絨,近乎油滑。接着牛肉湯、石南花、橄欖油和黑胡椒的味道透出,肉味漸濃。一些熱帶水果也潛伏其中。收結:濃茶、檸檬香蜂草、洋甘菊、伯爵茶、煙斗煙絲、止咳藥和一些深色軟質水果的味道,悠長怡人。酒評:很榮幸能品嚐這支相當迷人的陳釀。我想你因應年齡和產地,或可說是有一點點的失望,但它畢竟是支陳年纖巧的威士忌。我們還是不要吹毛求疵,它仍是一款美麗且極之優雅的佳釀。」( Whiskyfun:5星)
