Whisky Reviews for Glen Scotia 1972 MoS
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.56 points
- The nose is very good 90pts or above, but the taste was on the thin side, or just too delicate for me, or my expectations were too high on this one.
Soft and sweet. Oily (linseed?) Reminds me somewhat of old Bunna: cocos, peach and banana. Wunderbaum and some traces of pine resin.
Wood, as expected. With a slight bitterness. For me not to distinguish as a Cambeltown malt. Old coins. With water it opens up remarkebly. Syrup. Nuts and cocos caramel.
Quite long for it's age.
- Truly a great nose that tells a history most whisky dare to dream of.
A basket full of ripe and exotic fruit. Fresh kiwi and passion fruit mixed with very ripe bananas. This intense fruity profile also has an exciting other side with an oily texture and the scent of magic markers and even old engines.
On the palate the dried mandarin and exotic fruits are accompanied with cashew nuts and almond oil. The oily profile even extent into oliveoil and pine nuts. Sirop and caramel. Fruity tea's become darker and develop a slight coffee accent.
A long finish that belongs to this whisky history
