Whisky Reviews for Glen Graeme 12-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. ADram4Ben scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Wonderful nose, full of fermented sweet fruits, marzipan, a little tobacco. Full and round. Really a dream.
    Then a bit of disenchantment in the mouth: it does not hold the level of the nose, but flattens out. The 40% also becomes clear here. Something is missing. But overall complaining at a high level, I think. I would always wish for such a comprehensive and sweet balance in the nose. You can cope with the short finish.

  2. LDB scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Great time travel to a far away Nevis galaxy.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Pure Nevis Essence! Plus OBF and bitter almond.
      Not a bit bitter, but intense liquorice-like, the aroma of a chewed liquorice branch on the nose.
      Subtle overripe to slightly rotten late summer fruits, mirabelle plums, plums.
      Funky like the music from back then.
      40% - seriously? Works much more intensely.
    • Taste

      Oily, full of oily! Yes! Honey, lilac blossoms, a trace of candied ginger, then mint, and, so to speak, fruit umami - everything is tightly interwoven and smooth in the best possible sense. What kind of great material is that?
    • Finish
      88 88
      OK, then he runs out of breath relatively quickly, but remains very pleasantly sweet and spicy, the whole thing and can be extended significantly by chewing it up.
