Whisky Reviews for Speyside Region 1973 DD

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.32 points

  1. Vexer scored this whisky 93 points Member Senior

    Very honeyed on the nose,  with oils and quinces. Orange zest.

    1st thing you notice is a lovely mouthfeel, thicker than the previous '73 Speysiders.

    Spices, raisins, orchard fruits and full-on honey-wax on the palate.  Cinnamon, spearmint... hints of smth oriental. Utterly complex.Good strength for such an oldtimer 52%+ !

    On the finish, there's lacquered wood and notes of exotic fruit, some subtle acidity on raspberries and dried citrus fruit. Medium-long.

    Most likely Glenfarclas, as most of these ones are.
