Whisky reviews for Glenury Royal 1980 DL

8 users have left 8 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.76 points.

  1. Dirk scored this whisky 88 points Super Administrator

    Nice profile, different then the other Glenury Royals I tried. Pretty strong on the sherry cask here but quality for sure.
    • Nose
      Nutty, menthol, pencil shavings and some old cigar box. Then dried fruits, raisins, plums, apricots are emerging. Becomes more fruity after 15 minutes in the glass.
    • Taste
      Nutty, chocolate, plums, thick and sticky. Some honey and milk chocolate again and building towards sweet and sour fruits. A bit of turkish delights, raisins, a menthol layer running through the profile. Then more towards the sweeter aspects.
    • Finish
      Midlong finish, sweet and creamy chocolate. Sweet fruits, plums and apricots.

  8. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very interesting whisky with an odd profile from a lost distillery.
    • Nose
      Toasted chestnuts. Pencil shavings. Lots of minty flavours (like walking in a wood full of pine trees). Also leathery notes later on. Whiff of smoke
    • Taste
      Dark wood. Cedar. Raisins. Coffee. Spices of caraway and chicken-masala. The influence of the sherry cask is clear.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Slightly tanninic. A little pepper. Nutmeg. Menthol again.

  9. Sonett scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Oak, hay, herbs and a little of raisins and sherry notes
    • Taste
      Enters sweet, then comes oak and wood followed by spices and pepper
    • Finish
      long and peppery finally fading out in wood and bitter almonds
