Whisky Reviews for Pride of Strathspey 1938 JG

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.60 points

  1. tebond968 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Pride of Strathspey 1938, 40%, James Gordon & Co., Da Litri 3/4, 75cl , immediately set the tone. This tone can be described as ... yes, as something that I can hardly describe. That typically old, pre-war profile that you can not find in more recent distillates, whether it's fifties, sixties, seventies or more recent. The smell of autumn may give a hint. A forest walk through the falling leaves and moss. But of course a lot more than that. Honey, heather, ginger cookies, stewed fruit, antique shop ... lovely! Very delicate in the mouth, and yet powerful. Sweet Sour. Old high-end balsamic. Some mature wood, honey, jam. And oh so drinkable. Before you know it, you've cut in a few hundred euros. Unique! No Serge, you're wrong here. The bottle does not mention how old the whisky is, you can only deduce from the 'Da Litri' that it is bottled for 1975. 92/100 http://onversneden.com/2010/12/22/de-hoogmis/

  3. BenNevis scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    It was very nice to get to try a 1938  Macallan, This probably wasn't one of Macallans best casks tho.
    Edit / I have to point out the bottle that I took my score from had been open for many years. I don't know if this had had a negative effect on the whisky or not. At the time we tried quite a few old bottles and some had been open a long time too and they were still in excellent condtion

    Undisclosed Macallan.
