Whisky Reviews for Glenalba 30-year-old Cd

    After the 27 year old whiskey, which tastes excellent, I was quite disappointed with this one. For me it is just average. A little more starch would be recommended for these (Lidl) whiskeys (maybe 46% vol. Is enough).
    Where the 27 year old goes in my favorite direction (sulfur), the 30 year old gets stuck in the wood. If you like wood flavor, you will find a good representative here.

    • Nose
      84 84
      Modern, clean sherry, sweet fruit compote, some old wood in the background.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Still a bit zingy at this age and ABV, otherwise fine and easy drinking. The older oak notes lend some substance to an otherwise somewhat watery affair.
    • Finish
      82 82
      The grain is unmistakable here. A bit hollow; the wood stages a vanishing act.

    Nice nose but a bit thin with only 40%. Needs time in the glass and gets better... But likely would have made more fun bottled at higher alcohol strength ... More to come when the bottle is open for a few days. Often does miracles.
