Whisky Reviews for Glen Spey 1977 MoS

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.84 points

  1. Hans-Ludwig scored this whisky 85 points Moderator

    Color : bright, very bright yellow
    Aroma : very light, apple and lemon, a hint of salt and smoke
    Taste : At first the alcohol dominates. Then vanilla and banana come into play. But there are also Zironenaromen, sweet sherry and almonds and a hint of smoke and a pronounced chilli.
    Finish : Short, sharp and intense.
    Conclusion : Without water, the alcohol dominates very strong and leaves little room for other sensations than sharpness. With a few drops of water unfold the hidden flavors and the whisky is very, very delicious.

    An impressive Glen Spey.
    • Nose
      Complex. Smooth to very smooth. Floral notes of heather and hay intermingled with some smokiness. Grassy and slightly soapy. Als citrus fruit (lemon and lime) an cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Waxy and oily. Big and round. Sweet barley and juicy oakiness. Very nice. Als lots of fruitiness and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long. Some spice (stuffed peppers and nutmeg) but the fruity sweetness remains. Well balanced.
