Whisky Reviews for Old Perth 1996 MMcK

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.31 points

  1. Eun1 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Not the most complex whiskey in its age group, but a nice classic sherry malt with typical dark fruity, full and ripe aromas of raisins, figs, sour cherry, dark chocolate, etc.
    It fills the mouth with a lasting sweetness, which is framed by spicy wood notes and clearly pushes the fruit notes already present in the nose.
    In my opinion, it tolerates a little water quite well, because it opens without losing its creamy and mouth-filling consistency.
    Dangerously quaffable, easy-to-drink whiskey with a good price-performance ratio for a 21-year-old malt.

  2. rb854 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Because of all the fuzz about it my expectations were maybe a bit too high, but despite that it was still a pretty nice dram.
    • Nose
      Sweet, sherrynotes, some dried fruits, cinnamon and malt. Quite subtle. Then there is a whiff of winegum, strawberryjam, some leathery notes and then there is a strong tobacco smell.
    • Taste
      Sweet, fruity, apricot, peach, oranges, some chocolate and liquorice, quite sharp.
    • Finish
      Strawberryjam, peach, leather, spicy, nutmeg and woody notes.

    Whisky gets better when bottle is open for a while. 

    A fantastic fruity sherry bomb, quite fond of this one
