From the Dalmore website:

The oldest, and I think best scotch I have ever tasted was a MacAllan 30 year old. I have a friend who was given a bottle of it by one of his buddies who works for a liqour distributor in Florida. The bottle was given to a few employees of the distributor as a sort of Christmas bonus, but this guy did not like Scotch and he just gave it away to one of my friends (unbelievable). I don't even think that it is commercially available here in the states. Anyway, we were at a gathering one night and the topic of scotch came up. My friend pipes up and says I have a bottle of this MacAllan at home and I think it is 30 years old. My other friends and I balked at his claim and told him it was probably an 18. But when he described a blue bottle we immediately suggested a trip to his house. Sure enough there it was and it was fantastic. The thing that struck me the most about it was the mouthfeel. It just was so silky. Needless to say we did not drink too much of it after we convinced our friend what a prize he had.

hi Mr T. If you had asked me I would have said this line means a lot of rubbish.
A journalist who heard some facts but could not get them right in writing his article and was not curious or inquisitve enough to do some more research. That is where such sentences come from.
Jeroen had the story on his peatfreak page and the stories he told had their facts right.
The feature goes on a bit further down like this
"The Dalmore 62 is described as "a masterpiece forged from the Highlands of Scotland".
It was derived from four casks of single malt dating from 1868, 1876, 1926 and 1939.
The 12 bottles have their own hand-printed labels and bear unique names."
What?? I mean What about 1943???
I think they have the Bowmore Surf age wrong. It is NAS and now their bottom of the range following the departure of the legend (8yo ?).
As for notes on the 25yo - there will be some on the forum pages, no doubt.
