Whisky Reviews for Glenlivet 1955 RWD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 95.55 points

  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    A classic 50s sherry bomb, not common even in 60s, 70s, another legendary dram from Samaroli!
    • Nose
      Juice of dates? dark sherried notes, almost a PX! A hint of smoke (50s glory!) In the same league as a 50s Aberlour, Macallan, Talisker with huge old style sherry influence!
    • Taste
      Dates, more red fruits, fresh mint tea, amazingly not bitter!!! Very creamy, smooth, swimming in your mouth. It almost like a hard minty candy in a fluid state (no better words to describe), a heaven of mints!
    • Finish
      Heavenly good pu-er tea, sherry and smoke, chewy, old leather
