Whisky Reviews for Glenury Royal 13-year-old CA
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.00 points
Very fruity, rich sherry influence, lime and some tropical notes. Strong mints and fresh herbs. Ripe pear, caramel, papaya cream, toffee, and overripe banana/pineapple. A touch of smoke, briney.
Immediately fruity, clear sherry influence, lime and pineapple, sweet and bitter herbs, herb medicine, becoming very dry and woody, then it became very sour, what a turn! Oily and intense.
Medium to long, mints, oily fruits, caramel. Ripe apple, rich apple skin.
- Glenury Royal 13yo (80 poof, Cadenhead miniature, 1970s)
Colour: gold. Nose: superbly coconutty and richly waxy. Lots of soots, polishes, crystalised fruits and wee mushroomy and miso notes. Excellent. Mouth: terrific presence in the mouth. Very Cadenhead dumpy, even in the mini format. Lots of metal oils, mechanical notes, dark dried fruits, damp leaves, leather, pot pourri and cough medicines. Finish: good length. All on cereals, sooty waxes, more crystalised fruits and putty. Comments: Many great wee drams to be found in these old minis. Amazing staying power even in small format with a slightly low level. Big, old school highland style Glenury.
SGP: 561 - 89 points.
Notes from Angus for whiskyfun.
There is good balance here. Fruity (mandarins and jackfruits), with a trace of mint. Just so you know, "fruity and minty" is a damn good combination in whisky, second only to "fruity and peaty" in my book. There is also a honeyed edge to this, which makes me think there's some old sherry cask in this.
Just lovely!! Viscous and fat mouthfeel. An old Cadenhead indeed! Old school yumminess! It coats the tongue. Great strength despite being 80 degree proof. Honey fruit juice with mint. Cantaloupes, pomelo and jackfruits. Honeyed. You can't make a better cocktail than this.
No off flavors. These old cadenhead dumpy black label minis are hit and miss, and this one one is a decisive hit!
