Whisky Reviews for Glen Scotia 1991 DD
13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.73 points
- Color: Amber
Nose: Coconuts immediately jump out at me, accompanied by some banana and papaya. Then there’s brown sugar and pecans. A herbal freshness too, eucalyptus. There’s some occasional lime and a candy store scent. This one is quite a shape shifter, makes it a very engaging experience. With water, the citrus notes come out more, mandarin in particular. Also a very sudden liquorice note.
Palate: A sugary sweetness and dried plums. There’s barley too, and a vanilla-honey-oak cocktail. As in some other Glen Scotia’s, there’s an ever so slight dirty note, kind of like that other Campbeltown distillery. With water, there’s more milk chocolate and canned fruits to be discovered.
Finish: A medium long finish. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Some red peppers pop up, but are quite subdued. An umami note too and if you’ve ever had pink chocolate, that’s in here too.
Quite a shape shifter of a whisky this one, but I’m not one to knock complexity. Glen Scotia is rapidly rising in my list of great distilleries.

- Nice nose, sweet, floral and herbal. But dusty too. Mouth: still the same, but more peppery. Dry finish, short to medium long.
It's wednesday so I'll take it!
- The aroma is sweet, slightly mineral, lacquer: an old cupboard, plywood, dried berries and dried fruits, chocolate, cream, gingerbread, dark honey, a hint of the sea and iodine. The taste is sweet, spicy, mineral: the lightest hint of smoked meat, pepper, lacquered wood, dust, tablet cheek, honey, dried fruit and berries, salt, astringent oak. The aftertaste is not very long: oak, minerality (dust, iodine, tablets). Conclusion . You usually expect a lot from the twenty-year-old mole from the Daily Dram. But here it is too mineral-wood-lacquered. Not to say that disappointment, but the label promised more. Rating: 85 (n22t21f21b21).
- n: mineral, sour cherries and orange peels, lavender, red fresh apples, including ripe figs, sugared pineapples, wood polish, mocha yogurt, forest honey and light wood notes. very well balanced. a pleasant change between sweet and sour notes. b: herbal sweets, blue tea, dried red fruits, very creamy, lemons and lots of tangerines. f: a very tasty sweetness that becomes slowly sour; accompanied by fine pepper aromas. Long finish.
- From the development from nose to finish, it's not the most thrilling whisky, but it makes up for that because all the sensations are so well integrated into a very friendly and creamy single malt. It has enough power and a good mix of sweet, sour and bitter.
A tad salty, otherwise very fresh yet creamy. Green herbs, tangerine, vanilla, peach, honeyed cereals and hay. It's all equally balanced and integrated.
Full-bodied, both herbal and sweet associated with a nice little sour touch. Various kinds of herbs (almost like a ricola lozenge), again honeyed cereals with creamy vanilla yogurt, tangerine, and some fresher notes of apple and lemon. Towards the end, some spices arrive but that's all in the mellow zone.
The mellowness continues in the long finish. There is pepper, but in a modest way. Then there are the notes of the wood (oak shavings, vanilla), honey, and green herbs.
- Great start on the nose. Good palate, but a little bit too much bitter fruit in the end. Still an old nose and body that displays the soft character of an older one.
good amount of oak, clean antic furniture so without the dust, Honey, ripe oranges,
chocolates with crushed hazelnuts, creamy mocca, a slight metallic side to it. Also some anise.
Lots of honey,
candy and brown sugar. Cold coffee with cream in it. Lots of lemons and not so
much oranges that were on the nose. Bitter and dried fruits, grapefruit. Spices
like ginger, green peper and paprika powder. Bitter sweet.
shavings, bitter fruits, orange peelings and a little bit of aluminium. Tannines from cold tea.
