Whisky Reviews for Ayrshire 1975 Rare SV

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 76.58 points

    Colour: a light olive brown

    Nose: a lovely fresh bourbon arrival with vanilla, lemon, pencil shavings and a little cinnamon. Its a spritely fella with oily presence, resin-like and tinned pineapples. Apricots are in the mix alongside green apples.

    Taste: the depth and detail on the nose isn't replicated on the palate. This Ladyburn is light, airy and sporadic. An initial burst of vanilla, then lemons with green olives kicking in towards the end, assisted by melon.

    Given its age, we could have expected more complexity. Rating: 81
    • Nose
      A sweet nose on malt and cereals. Smells of fruit - apple, pear) and lemon.
    • Taste
      A sweet palate very cereal. Malt and fruit - apple, pear, melon, banana) But the cereal is dominant and evokes a little bread. We can not smell the vanilla that we could expect after 36 years in bourbon casks ...
    • Finish
      Medium final and a little peppery on malt and fruits.
