Whisky Reviews for Girvan 1984 SMWS G7.15

  1. Nergal scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes: Rich and opulent aromas of blood oranges and mead surrounded bundles of sweet pencil shavings and ripe banana to provide a cozy, snug welcome. Wafts of fermenting apples suggested heady spirits of calvados, armagnac and spicy Jamaican rum whilst the light oils of aged Riesling brought great depth of texture. The palate was dark and treacly with prune juice and sticky toffee pudding before baked apple crumble arrived with plenty of aged wood. With water, a burst of candied fruits, pecan nuts and spice embraced our senses. Then, as we closed our eyes, we found perfect contentment amongst maple syrup, marmalade and vanilla sponge cake served with fine Tokaji dessert wine. After spending 32 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a new oak hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.
