Serge Valentin (96)

Colour: dark gold (paler than the 1958).

Nose: probably less sherry than in the 1958, but even more elegance. More straightforward, more mineral, ashy, beautifully metallic, flinty... Also more on mint / eucalyptus, old turpentine, linseed oil... It’s only after a few minutes that more definite notes of sherry come through, sultanas, rum, gooseberries... Superb notes of leather polish as well. Again, extremely elegant.

Mouth: totally fantastic. Stunning balance and stunning complexity, fresh fruits, sherry, oak and malt. Thrilling mouth feel. Let me give you just a sample of all you get in this one: sultanas, tangerines, wax, fir honey, very old pu-erh tea, Russian tobacco, mint drops, old rancio, smoke... right, right, the rest will be censored by WF’s integrated anti-maltoporn brigade.

One of these bottles that helped to build the Macallan’s legend I think, and further proof that not only old whiskies that are dark in colour are fabulous.
