Whisky reviews for Speyburn 1977 GM

  1. Willie JJ scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Lovely whisky. A really under explored distillery and this is an excellent example.
    • Nose
      Banana and mango, chopped into porridge. Vanilla flavoured butter. Faint wood notes. Much nicer than I've made it sound.
    • Taste
      A splash of melted vanilla toffee along with fragrant floral notes. Lovely gentle sensation.
    • Finish
      Almost turns into Space Dust, but doesn't have the crackle. Long finish that induces much chewing.

    The whisky lets us rummage through old cardboard boxes in the cellar. Memories !

    wonderful fabric
    • Nose
      Color: the completely common gold

      Nose: . Old bottle flavor without end, old, musty-cool, to pull your nose through. Wax, old books, honey, herbs. Very mature and set.
    • Taste
      Dust-dry sherry, fruity. 30 year old fabric ... dry oak.
      Dried fruit, initially light-colored fruit, becomes waxy over time. Herbal. Over time you can guess yellow and darker fruits.
      The re (re) fill butt shows its qualities nicely with the 30yo. Initially sweet and then dry, the cheeky grapefruit comes through in the end - and
      Coffee.
    • Finish
      Rather long.

    Exotic fruits with lots of vanilla, very pleasant and well-balanced oak notes, almost as sweet as a liqueur. Floral light but also sturdy on the tongue, spicy sweet notes remain in the long finish. A perfect filling, this is a kind of a bottle, i discovered whisky in my early days, just sippable.
