Tasting notes by Serge Valentin: 90/100 www.whiskyfun.com

Cadenhead had quite a bunch of great 1976s in the past. There's no reason why this one shouldn't be just as good.

Colour: gold.

Nose: this baby's gentler and easier on the nose, rounder as well, with more vanilla and classic fruits such as apples, yellow plums, quinces, apricots, kumquats... Add touches of mint, eucalyptus, some earth, humidor, maybe a few mushrooms (the spicy ones such as the rhodopaxillus - oh forget about that)... Some honey too... Lovely, really lovely.

Mouth: it's the same whisky as the 1975, really.  A little more oomph thanks to the higher strength, maybe an added zestiness (lime), probably a slightly lower complexity... But what a fantastic fruitiness altogether. Oh, and there's a little mustard too, even some kind of wasabi sauce (the one they make with ginger and sesame oil, it's a killer).

Finish: long, lemony, nervous... Wonderful.

Comments: very same high quality as the 1975. No reasons to come up with a different score. SGP:661 - 90 points.
