Whisky Reviews for Blended Malt 2001 LGA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points

  1. GAET59 scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

    Nose: apricot, orange, a little peach then we start with citrus fruits and wood, it's fine,
    the hazelnut comes next

    Palate: Once again, citrus fruits take the first place (mandarin, orange, ...), the palate is gripping

    Overall: relatively short on a low bitterness, wood and a hint of chocolate which gives a roundness to the whole

    A well-made whiskey that lacks complexity to reach new heights. The previous one was much more to my taste and more classy.

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    18-year-old whiskey at 46% (but cask raw) aged in sherry casks.
    nose:
    Characteristic sherry on cooked and macerated fruits, on orange, tangerine, raisin, on currants in the early morning with dew on it, a little buttered, peppery, glaze, traces of mold, crushed pits
    mouth:
    fruity, white pepper, on the almond shell with the bitterness that goes with it, a note of caramel, vanilla, leather, the imposing varnish, the fruits cooked in the copper basin on the cherry, the grape, the date, return of almond and pepper on a dry wood
    final:
    on fruits, peppery spices, mild and vegetal flavor, fresh, caramelized for a medium finish.
