Whisky Reviews for Glenalba 37-year-old Cd

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.68 points

  1. SmokeyRuhr scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    I'm really surprised by this discounter whiskey. 37 years is of course a house number, which is often justified to justify several hundred euros. Here far under 100 euros. Can that work out?
    I think it went very well.
    Not a heavy old whiskey, but a nice fruity, delicious and tasty whiskey, with hints of age.
    I think the PLV is more than good.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The sherry cask finish makes you think of old whiskey from sherry casks, but it's still fruity and looks younger and fresher to me.
      I would have typed on a single malt, or at least a blended malt, because of Grain I notice nothing.
      Plums, berries and tobacco of a good cigar (not lit!). Overall, fruity and harmonious.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Yes, he is very good drinkable. It affects me more in the mouth than in the nose. Stronger and older. No alcohol to feel, just a little peppery tingle. But to the beautiful sweetness of dark fruits and the beautiful bitterness, as of dark drinking chocolate, which spreads beautifully oily and creamy in the mouth. Very pleasant mouthfeel so that you can let it circle in your mouth for a long time.
    • Finish
      85 85
      He remains fruity and chocolaty. Unfortunately, that does not stay that way for very long. He disappears relatively quickly. I do not have the pleasant bitterness left by some older sherry whiskey when leaving for a long time.

  2. LDB scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This blend is definitely considered to be successful. Of course, 43%
    or better, but he is delicious, also in terms of price-age ratio.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Lots of cinnamon, hulls, sweet vanilla pod, honey, caramel, very sweet, freshly sawn old wood, tightly woven compote of deep yellow, ripe fruit.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sugared blood orange, mild wood juice, flower nectar, very elegant and supple, spicy fruit paste with the aromatic wood notes without any bitterness
    • Finish
      85 85
      Relatively short, but pleasant woody note, very harmonious and gentle, with balanced oak cargo.

  3. dRambo scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Delicious compliant bottling at a great price - but you should at least multiply it by 1.5-2, because this whiskey does not want to be enjoyed in small malthead swallow. The price has a positive influence on my score - nice aromas of old stuff - just a bit diluted.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Superficially acidic to apple with clove, behind it red berry jam - sweet sour with blackberries a touch of blueberries - then it goes on towards orange, he is oily, fuller, sweeter, a little licorice and a fine hint of smoke - for most hardly noticeable, campfire Logs, smells like Italians when I enter the room with the fireplace for the first time that day - very fine and volatile, juicy tobacco with honey,
      No grain notes - not even the typical OBF. Very round and soft - beautiful without any jotters, without corners, without edges and a lot of understatement.

      With the first sip, it is even sweeter, walnuts, gingerbread spices, nutmeg, fine old wood dust.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Warm, red fruit jam, raisins, rum chocolate, clear pepper and tobacco notes, it feels at first rather like 43% +, is much stronger on the palate than in the nose.
      Great sips are surprisingly long chewable - it develop great multilayered wood flavors, oak cabinet wall, wax, furniture polish, nutmeg, cocoa, banana skin, walnuts
    • Finish
      86 86
      Peppery, subtle fruity, quite dry - but pleasant - for me it reinforces the oak flavors - it does not stay long - but I chewed it too long

  4. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    the beautiful fruitiness is its most prominent feature. He drinks relatively easily but is not too weak-breasted. The old age does not really come into play, the grain component is very restrained. The PLV in terms of taste is appropriate, but excellent in age.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Strong berry fruits (strawberries, raspberries), vanilla, bark, dust,
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet, fruity. Vanilla and malt, bitterness arises, the alcohol could be better integrated
    • Finish
      90 90
      In the fairly long finish then again very fruity with berries. Stimulates salivation with moderate bitterness.
