Whisky Reviews for Old Perth 1996 MMcK

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.17 points

  1. Totoro scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Apparently includes up to 60% Glen Grant, blended together with other malts and put to rest in sherry casks in 1999, at which point the component malts may have already been five years old (see Highland Herold No. 42, Spring 2019, p.14).
    Solid stuff with many of the hallmarks of much older malts, such as deep and dense aromas of varnish and wood polish. Thickly sherried and cask-heavy but very good, especially at this price point. Almost a poor man's Glendronach single cask. ;)

  2. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A very tasty thing.
    • Nose
      Notes from an online blind tasting.

      Colour:
      Light amber

      Nose:
      Wet tobacco, rum raisins, and brown sugar. Rum-like. Forest berry liqueur and a little balsamic vinegar. Wet wood and a little olive oil. The sherry flavors are nice and fat. Hints of menthol and clove spices. In the background there is a light lovage and overripe orange.
    • Taste
      Spicy start. Then woody bitterness. The tobacco is now rather dry. Walnut and pastry. More dark cherries and espresso in the second sip.
    • Finish
      Rather long. Bitter walnut, wood and blackberries.

  3. maltaholic scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    It has a very nice aroma.
    Instantly reminds me of a Glenfarclas.
    Fruity sherry,
    spicy wood,
    Wood glue.

    Very strong in the mouth.
    But it tastes rather fruity.
    It has a nice sherry aroma
    paired with intense barrel notes.
    Quite thoroughbred, no missing marks.

    Very nice blend!

  7. Spiceweasel scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      84 84
      Sweet raisins, sherry, light smoke flavors
    • Taste
      85 85
      The smokiness comes at the end easy to carry, hardly any wood flavors in the taste, the sweetness of sherry on the palate, a light fruitiness
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long finish, without corners or concise impressions, quite successful.
