Whisky Reviews for Glencoe 08-year-old MacD

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.75 points

  1. D3US scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A great value for money whisky in my book, considering the composition (not single malt), age (8 years old) and price (GBP 36 at the distillery). Really enjoyable.

      Buttery, basic fruits (apple and the likes). Cereal notes and nutty, citrus and oak. Needs water.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Warming, like a fruit pie straight from the oven. Mushy fruits, apples again, with stone fruit. Malty sweetness, roasted pecans layered in honey.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Slightly sharp at first, with an odd metallic note. A hint of bitter, with a sweet edge. Warming from start to finish.

    Flavor is srassy, zesty, aggressively fruity. Taste is oily, bold, buttert, malty, fruity. Finish echoes taste stable for a long time!
