Whisky Reviews for Pride of Orkney 12-year-old GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.17 points

  1. Tom03 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    T: Ooh, thats particular - thats dusty library books right there and a touch of lemon cleaning solution - so we’re in an educational environment for sure. Its a bit cardboardy, dusty and wooly, some grease and a weird steamed veal vibe that reminds me of some less than acceptable Bladnoch miniatures. Theres no sweetness nor bitterness here - its flatlining savoury=sour all the way

    => Sounds like a bottle that has spent to much time in the sun...

    N: Its going to be Highland Park or Scapa in the main. On my nose its a grainy, porridgy one with paper mache, soda stream soda [no flavouring] and not much else going on here.
