Whisky reviews for Glamis 12-year-old

One user has left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 80.50 points.

  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    An undisclosed blend but almost certainly Speyside from the taste - well worth a punt if you see one lying unloved on an auction website (I expect His Lordship has long since knocked this batch out).

  2. holborndrinker scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    The style is Speyside - like a Glenfarclas and not bad especially when it was as cheap as chips.
    • Nose
      A pleasant nose with a slightly elusive note - a gentle nuttiness or wood almost?
    • Taste
      The style is of a sherry base rather than bourbon with some sweet notes coming through - no particular heat to this one.
    • Finish
      Not as smooth as an Irish, but there are no rough edges - I wonder if a life time in a bottle has affected the taste slightly to its detriment.
