Whisky Reviews for Old Rhosdhu 1994 VM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. the_muskox scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Not too spectacular, but a solid and tasty whisky. That milkiness is rather different and really interesting. Great tropical fruit and a few old-whisky flavours as well, both of which are always welcome in my glass. It does lean on the sweet side of things - I’d love a bit more balance.
    • Nose
      Old, floral, and creamy-sweet. Old dusty boiled sweets, banana Runts, and a bit of that sappy green flavour you get in banana peels. Honeyed notes of nougat and homemade marshmallow. Tropical too - coconut milk ice cream and pineapple, with some yellow plum. More floral notes of orange flowers, cardamom, and lemongrass. A hint of cashew and sesame nuttiness. Varnished walnut wood and old parchment. Wood spice with water.
    • Taste
      Thick texture. Richly tropical and creamy up front, but not too sweet at first. Sugar cane, toffee, and slivered almonds. Develops more sugary – banana, more tropical fruit, and… milk! A whole lot of milk. With some cereal as well, possibly Raisin Bran. Lightly grassy and floral. Sweetened condensed milk. On the back end comes cinnamon dusted cappuccino and white chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium-length. Milky and sherberty. Those hard yogurt candies, what are those called again? Beeswax and hint of black pepper. Froot Loops in milk. Wild blueberries.
