Whisky Reviews for Royal Lochnagar 1996 CA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.67 points

  1. Falnor scored this whisky 68 points Connoisseur

    I'm glad this was just a sample, because this is terrible. I don know why cadenhead would bottle this unripe, bad cask without any fun. No, not true. Cubey666 and I had fun with describing the taste. 
    • Nose
      A very sharp start. Peppery and very alcoholic without maturation. Fresh lemonjuice, lychee without the sweetness and grapefruit. Magnesium because of something metaalic in the background.
    • Taste
      Sour grains and lemon skin. Yeast. Sweaty shoes with old dirty clothes. With water more plastic and rubber notes. Cardboard and still peppery.
    • Finish
      An alcohol burn that should give a long finish, but it's just a burn and then it fades.

  2. TheNose scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose: vanilla, rubarb

    Taste: woody, sweet and fat

    Finish: woody, long,  little bit sharp and bitter
