Whisky Reviews for Inverleven 1991 GM

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.28 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Amazing that this whisky of a closed distillery is still relatively widely available at a very affordable price. I am being told that there is not much stock left of Inverleven...
    • Nose
      An unusual nose. A little bit perfumed, soft fruits. Some malty notes as well.
    • Taste
      Very fruity with a rounding vanilla sweetness. More round and oilier than an average Lowlander.
    • Finish
      Some spiciness and floral flavours. Smooth.

    Notes from a 2nd bottle.
    This is a little better than the last time I tried it, it is not too weak this time but a score of 85 points is still about right.
    Lots of cereal and barley notes in this one.

  4. hs305 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    [March, 2014]  I had this dram during a "Lowlands" rarities tasting at Bonn.

    In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5. 
    My notes state a light profile on citrus and honey aromas.  Both the body and finish are a litlle flat (maybe due to the low abv).

  6. lincolnimp scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I like the Inverleven profile but at 40% this is too weak for me.
    • Nose
      Expressive with notes of coffee, butter, honey, a little chocolate and whiffs of cigar smoke.
    • Taste
      A little thin with some sugary coffee sweetness, honey and biscuit.

      There is a little lemon and caramel mixed with hints of orange.
    • Finish
      Medium length getting sweeter.

    • Taste
