Whisky Reviews for Glenlochy 1980 DT

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.40 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    This is fantastic whisky! Complex. One long to be remembered. Such a shame that this distillery doesn't exist anymore.
    • Nose
      Lots of citrus fruit and pineapple. Sweet barley. Some floral notes of acacia. Mint and wet grass.
    • Taste
      What a nice palate this whisky has. Clean but with a lot of depth. Lemongrass. Honey and oranges. Vanilla and some oak. Toasted almonds. Cinnamon and ginger.
    • Finish
      Sweet and spicy. Some bitterness. Very well balanced.

  2. Volanne scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A difficult old style Speysider. You will need to like your malt austere and grassy. I like mine sexier.
     
    Tasted blind
    • Nose
      Very grassy, which here means literaly "lots of grass". Big austere fresh grass with all its dryness and bitterness. And quite some alcohol. After a while, unfolds on nicer woody notes. Pleasant vanilla and creme brulee. Fruit brandy (plum eau-de-vie?)
    • Taste
      Fruity and dry. Hot, but pleasantly tasty if not very complicated. Grassiness comes back, with an obvious woody dryness.
    • Finish
      Long, with a grassy bitterness.
