Whisky Reviews for Ainslie's Royal Edinburgh

  1. Jackson05 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Too far gone sadly...

    Just massive OBE, not leaving room for much else. Old sweat, dirty socks, cardboard, spoiled milk, stewed stone fruits. not good.

    I had a sample of a similar Royal Edinburgh from a similar vintage and it was not only much better, but also very good! This is the risk you run buying 50+ year old whisky. There are many unknown factors that can have 2 similar bottles tasting completely different. You can be under no illusions buying old blends... they can be complete trash.

    Buyer beware. No Score

  2. detachedblue scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    I tasted a version from Milano import. Not very inspiring.
    • Nose
      Faint, mellow, good oakiness, young malt, pear drop
    • Taste
      Mellow and watery, pear drop, sour pear and apple.
    • Finish
      Short and sweet.
