Whisky reviews for Old Rarity 12-year-old

One user has left a review for this whisky. Average rating is 85.33 points.

  1. 3_243F6 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Fill: top shoulder. Quite a lot of bad OBF upon opening, but better now. Still some raw root vegetables throughout, but not super distracting. Not very sweet on the nose but the palate and especially the finish are better balanced.

    This was bottled in the seventies, so contains Caol Ila from the sixties. The Caol Ila influence is actually quite clear.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Lots of soot, some root vegetables, some sherry, quite old-style. Needs lots of air to get over the vegetables (but that’s probably just my bottle). I gave it several hours with a lid on the glass.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Still sooty, but with white grapes, green grapes, red apples, some orange fruitiness, a little menthol.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Very fresh. Menthol, subtle eucalyptus, soot, subtle sherry, grapefruit, a little citrus, grapes. Really nice.
