Glenury Royal 37 yo 1973/2010 (42.1%, The Whisky Agency, bourbon hogshead, 187 bottles) Five starsAnother new one from our German friends who, with a few of their compatriots, are simply stealing the show these days as far as great indie malts are concerned. But how do they do that? Blackadder had some 1973 Glenuries a while back and all were excellent, which gives me high hopes here. Colour: pale gold. Nose: ohhh fudge! Do you know manuka honey? And Yquem 1988? Joy de Patou? Mouth: okay, let’s calm down, as often with these old whiskies the palate doesn’t go (quite) as far as the nose but frankly, that would have been a miracle. Anyway, it’s still fabulously rich and alluring, so to speak, but never heavy. Very elegantly fruity and honeyed, maybe a tad oriental, orangey… The best Turkish delights ever, even the most distinguished Istanbuliot would agree. Oh well, please call the anti-maltoporn brigade. Finish: please hurry. Comments: superstuff, how do they do that? What’s the trick? And, most important: are there sister casks? SGP:751 - 94 points.

TWA Glenury Royal 37yo 1973/2010 42.1%

こんにちはadamoです。TWAの「Still Life Ⅰ」のグレンユーリーロイヤルになります。日本では次に発売されるはずのシリーズ分ですが、オファーありませんでしたね。一般向けには無いだけでしょうか?

グレンユーリー自体リリースが少なく、オフィシャルはもう完全にどうかしちゃってるお値段なので、、こいうボトラーズ物はありがたいですね。

しかもこのボトル、なんとwhiskyfunで94点と、もんの凄い高評価だったりします。それで、人気になって国内にまわってこないのでしょうか?

画像はフルボトルですが、サンプル瓶を3回にわけて飲んでみました。

さてその印象は 「上質なハチミツ」でした。

香りは、甘くどくない、フローラル感のある、良質な蜂蜜。whiskyfunではYquemとの表現もありますが飲んだことないのでわかりません、なかなかの香りです。

味わいは、同じくハニー&フルーティー(ほんのりアプリコット&オレンジ)

開けたては香りを嗅いで「きたーーーっ」と思いましたが、香りと比べると味わいはちょっと弱い感じでした。香りにつられてすぐ飲んじゃったのもありますが(笑)

最後は、甘い香りが多少おちついた感もありますが、味は開いてきてバランスとしてはグッド。ウッディさも目立たずとってもエレガントです。

一緒にOB1968、36年と飲み比べましたが、TWAのほうがエレガントな感じで好みでした。

Color
Amber
Nose

Pas mal de cire, de miel. Floral, rond. Confiture de fruits exotiques. Chocolat au lait, bananes mures et cannelle.

Taste

Explosion mielleuse, fruits confits. Un peu court en bouche, on retrouve les éléments du nez, mais un peu en dessous. Un peu aqueux. Vraiment très doux, rond et agréable. J'y retrouve des notes de creme brulée, de pudding agrémenté de sirop d'érable. Pas mal de levures. Beurre-caramel.

Finish

Fade out vanillé et fruité un peu brusquement stoppé.

Yellow gold
Nose

De la poire à la coque de noix, puis les fruits prennent le pas sur le bois et se développent sur la pomme verte. De la cire mielleuse et de la résine par la suite. Du pollen poussiéreux.

Taste

La part des anges a fait son office: c'est aqueux de prime abord.
La bouche est dans la continuité du nez: des fruits mielleux, du pollen de fleur.

Finish

Finale légèrement piquante. Légère acidité citronnée. Assez décevante.

Comments

Bouche et finale très en retrait par rapport au nez, elles n'offrent aucune surprise. Dommage.
Ca se laisse néanmoins boire facilement et ce n'est pas mauvais.

Nose

Über fruity !! Une corbeille de fruits surmûris, décadents, sucrés, juteux et parfumés. Fruiits jaunes surtout (abricot, pêche, mirabelle), mais aussi de la poire, ainsi qu'un soupçon de mandarine. Vraiment quelque chose d'un vieux Sauternes. Du miel aussi, de la cire, de la crème d'amandes, ainsi qu'une délicate touche florale (eau de rose) et une pincée d'épices (muscade).

Taste

Moins fruitée que le nez ne le promettait, elle n'en reste pas moins de belle qualité. Beaucoup de miel, des loukoums, et pas mal d'épices (muscade, poivre blanc). On retrouve tout de même un joli fruité, principalement sur l'orange, avec aussi un peu d'abricot.

Finish

Assez longue, marquée par le jus d'orange, le miel et les épices.

Comments

Un très beau whisky, encore vif malgré son aĝe que trahit toutefois sa grande élégance et le beau fondu de ses arômes. Et quel nez !!! Cleopâtresque !!

Pale gold
Nose

Nez très propre et élégant.

Subtil mélange de miel, d'orange, de citron et de mandarine.

Quelques traces de fumée.

Au 2éme nez de belles notes de noisettes se mêlent à la mandarine.

Taste

La bouche est moins fruitée, sur les céréales et le miel.

Après aération le fruité apparaît sur la mandarine et le zest de citron.

Ensuite nous avons quelques épices et des notes de noix. 

Finish

Finale moyenne sur les épices et les fruits.

Nose

Wow, mnjammnjammnjam. Mellow, balanced and rich nose with intensive notes of ripe tropic fruits (papayas, bananas and oranges), curry, cinnamon and other spices. Waxy and grassy as well. Rather fresh considering the age. Nice oakyness and vanilla flavor.

Taste

Smooth, balanced and rich. Turkish honey with vanilla ice cream, caramel cookies, mangos, orange cake and white pepper. Superb.

Finish

Long and soft with the notes from the palate lingering on, becoming grainy as well.

Comments

Extraordinary good whisky - recommended.
