Whisky Reviews for Coleburn 1983 CWC

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.41 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur


    N: Another robust one with a complex squidgy spongy density that the 26yo Coleburn couldn’t provide. From fruit sugars to seaside salts, paints, inks and oils, this one sings beautifully for a 26yo. Who doesn’t adore aged malts that have become sweaty-sweet and with those subtle old dusty layers that conjure memories of yesteryear?

    T: A bitter-sweet sweaty lemony old Speysider, the style of which I never [have enough of to] tire of. Thinner than I’d hoped, but the carry is true, containing all manner of descriptors and chemical reactions that few whiskies are ever allowed to develop.

    F: This one won’t be stopping short. Like the last North Port, the finish is fully sustained and reflects all that has gone before. 

    C: It’s hard to imagine any whisky fan not at least appreciating this whisky or its immutable style. Easily scores 91 points

    Coleburn 18/10 / 1983-2010 26yo CWC Exclusive Malts 70cl 48.6% # 1463, 209 btls. This is no longer a push and it is possible to drink whisky of distillery which is so difficult with a color timer squealing. What? What? I was worried about Coleburn 1983! Color: Transparent feeling gloss perfect for lighting.Coleburn-like, forecast of fluffy cookie series Nose: sandy.ironstyle.Castella.Smallly intersecting scent, just drink whisky Attack: Slightly salmony, astringent of finish.It is a delicacy system like halibut (Halibut) and good egg.Only stone and easy Minty get together , This is also gentle aeg ... But, where the cheese cake comes with juwat, surely Coleburn! Body: Smooth and well-planned featherweight indeed.Taste: Vanilly and Old Gin Oily.The custard with alcoholic tea is irresistible.Silky like tart and milky are also alive.When time goes by, fluffy floral shower. Finish: A stunning honor of dry honey and honey in Stollen.Beautiful beauty of juwa and ginger.In construction sites, asphalt and dry and honey.Offset to each other, a duet with a man odor and grace! With Coleburn as I expected, it was filled with a wonderful deal. https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyharsktk8fyt

    Blind I would think this was a Highland whisky rather than Speyside (maybe Knockdhu?). It is pleasant, but one glass in an evening of this is enough for me
    • Nose
      malty but also a clean fruitiness plus a dollop of grass; planed wood, some herbs as well (sage?)
    • Taste
      elements of spice, subtle liquorice, green apple, a lot of mouth-coating
    • Finish
      astringent, malts, the hogshead is apparent in the Fisherman's Friend spicy heat

  5. Sonett scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Herbs and wet leather, a bit earthy and old wood
    • Taste
      Enters very soft, initially with a herbal taste. Then soft chili spices and moving to a soft slightly oily bitterness 
    • Finish
      Medium long going from oily bitter almonds to a finish of sweet vanilla and vague oak
