does this help?
I think 10, 15 and the 20 re all GGGGREAT
They put it first in a blind n&t, so that's probably why no-one guessed it right. As far as I remember: very, very, very elegant. Not typical Islay but very good indeed. Like Speyside relates to the Highlands. Fruity, apples (Granny Smith?). At the end of the tasting we got back to the 20y and that made one remind of calvados...
I don't want to start speaking volumes about it because Jim McEwan poured it himself and I was told a little water was used. In other words I was not present for the cracking of the bottle, and how much is a little water, and what kind of water was it anyway, all of this I dunno. It had been resting for about 30 minutes before I came on the scene, but man when I received my sip it was definitely a CLASSIC 5 star!!! Blows the doors off the 20Y/O, which I did finally get around to as well!
I will taste The 10、The Twelve、The Fifteen、The XVII、The Links_St. Andrews'_14yo、Full Strength_1989_13yo and 1973 next month.
