Whisky Reviews for Ayrshire 1974 TWT Rare

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.78 points

  1. Master Quill scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Color: Light Gold

    Nose: Very aromatic. Sweet and clean. Pops out of the glass. Fruity and lively. Great combination of farmyness and fruity sweetness. On the nose it`s already a lot better than the 1975 Ladyburns I tried before. Nice wood too. Great greenish notes with gravy. If the taste will be anything like the nose, we`ll have a winner on our hands. When this get`s time to breathe the lively fruits make room for something more dark and broody. Meaty and some perfume. Very interesting.

    Taste: Fresh, fruity (pineapple) and in nothing you would say this is such an old malt. Not as complex as the nose is. The initial fruits are very quickly replaced by caramelized wood. Finish is good and slightly woody. But considering it`s age you would definitively expect more wood in this.

    Very likeable Ladyburn. The nose is very much better than the 1975 Signatories I tried before. Taste wise, maybe not so complex, but less woody than the Signatories. Very nice Ladyburn, one of the best that`s still around, and reasonably priced as well!

    Points: 86

    Original Tasting Notes

     

    Nose: Very allround composition of floral and fruity notes and fresh nuts as well.

     

    Taste: Sweet, subtle and light bodied, but with a bit of spicy bite.

     

    Finish: More sweetness in the lengthy finish which remains soft and fresh

    throughout.
