1979 North British 40 Year Old "Old Particular" Single Refill Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
This year we were more picky than usual in our grain selections. Perhaps the cream of the crop is the 40 year old North British. Though this cask is a bit younger than the 58 year old official distillery bottling released last year, it is still definitely no spring chicken. As single grain whisky ages past the 20 year mark, it often takes on tropical fruit notes; as it progresses even further, rich cream and honey often layer on top. At 40 years old, the cask doesn't overwhelm the spirit here. This all comes together in a glorious mesh as a sweet and dec...

95 points Decanter: "At 40 years old, the colour here is still exceptionally dark, surprisingly so. On the palate, the more expected signs of evolution are certainly there in the form of incense, soft truffle and forest floor notes, but there is a richness to the spine, and this was one of the most enjoyable wines of the tasting. It held up over five hours in the glass, gaining in layers. Remarkable when you think this was the first ever vintage, made in a far more classic Bordeaux-type winemaking style than would be typical today, with just 10 days of s...

92 points Wine Spectator: "Fruity, deep and firm, filled with plum and cherry, backed by youthful, stiff tannins. Needs time for complexity to develop." (11/1991) 90 points John Gilman: "The ’79 Lafite has been fully mature for a number of years now, and though it shows plenty of life still ahead of it, the wine is losing a bit of its elegance as it continues to creep along its plateau of maturity. Ten years ago this was a classically elegant middleweight Lafite, but as it has continued to age it has taken on some of the sauvage aromatic characteristic...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This brilliant dark ruby/purple-colored 1979 still retains a youthful vigor. Spicy, with plenty of smoke, dried herb, pepper, and cassis fruit, this outstanding, smoky, gamy (smoked meats galore), full-bodied La Chapelle reveals some angularity and rough tannin in the finish, but all other signs are positive. While it does not possess the weight of the biggest, most muscular vintages of La Chapelle, it is an exciting wine. (RP)" (06/2000) Wine Spectator: "After a dry summer, the harvest was interrupted by rain,...

Bid on this bottle of 1979 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94DC, 94JG, 90WS). Decanter: "This 1979 deserves to be better known as it's still formidably youthful, demanding several hours in the decanter to open up. When it does, the bouquet offers up a brilliant melange of crunchy blackcurrant, scorched earth, tobacco leaf and, yes, the signature eucalyptus notes for which Martha's Vineyard is so well known. On the palate the wine is virile, bright and dense, endowed with striking minerality. There's no hurry to drink up. (WK)" (06/2016)
