Whisky Reviews for Glenlochy 1980 PDA

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.46 points

  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    very fruity nose, malt very present, a little on crushed and sweet almonds, pastry spices;
    the fruits are on apples ciders a little tart and cooked, a little bit of candy too, the wood comes a little softer and more present scents with the vanilla cooked back.

    the finish is simple but long with scents that extend into the bottom of the glass, an excellent dram!

    Grade: 91 Odor: apple, pear, very fruity, sweet, vanilla, mineral, wax Taste: sharp, piercing, but sweet start, marzipan, sweet fruit, nutty Finish: Apple, Almond, Light Oak Verdict: very balanced, intense malt, sweetness, fruitiness and spice are in harmony

  3. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A confident example of the Highlands austerity. Therefore not a real seducer but more of an intellectual malt.
    • Nose
      Minerals, turpentine, wax... this is typically a Highland whisky and not the most accessible. Quite peaty as well, not unlike the 1980s Brora style in fact, but maybe more medicinal than Brora. At the start it showed beautiful round notes (apple pie, fruit syrup) but these disappeared quickly. Settles on paraffin and grasses.
    • Taste
      Punchy, again waxy and mineral but it show a little more roundness now (lime, apple). Spices (ginger, pepper). Some earthy notes and peat. Camphor and mint. A slightly oaky dryness as well.
    • Finish
      Long, kind of hot and peaty.
