Whisky Reviews for Glen Avon 1961 AsW

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.00 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      90 90
      somewhat reserved, cherry jam, raspberries, mulled wine, fresh sage, very beautiful cascades of precious wood aromas with light summer blossom notes, pulsating
    • Taste
      91 91
      polished oak, delicious dark chocolate, forest fruit jam, very subtle influence of smoke at the limit of perception
    • Finish
      91 91
      Significantly smoky finish, dry and spicy (not as intense as young Islay), the sherry notes are a bit tart, Ricola herbal sugar and sage tea

  2. DocF scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    I go with reserved, sage too, fruits are more present, more independent, juicier than in the House of Peers from just now. Removed smoke and wood notes only come through after the first sip. Then also mint and linden blossom. First red-fruity in the mouth, then increasingly darker, resin, soot, polished wood, iodine ointment, cough syrup, water mint. Long, dry finish, bittersweet to the point, cough syrup, mint, etc. Wonderful floral-fragrant soot.

    Not quite as exotic smoke as in WID: 64248, less perfectly incorporated sherry - nonetheless comes from a bygone era
