Whisky Reviews for Glen Albyn 1976 GM

- Although it is fairly closed, it is really tasty but not very special. Probably it was past its peak before it was bottled. A bottling on cask strength would probably have been better to make it more expressive. But not bad for this low alcohol percentage.
Quite fruity at first with yellow apples and oranges. This is followed by creme brulee, whipped cream and pears. Later the creme brulee in the nose becomes stronger. It’s a little musty, almost dunnage warehouse. As if the fruit disappears and you get mustiness in return
Apples, caramel and milk chocolate. Oranges and honey here too. Despite its 43%, it does have a creamy mouthfeel. But is fairly closed and I can’t get a lot of flavours out of it.
Mid-long, a little fruity and caramel. Somewhat drying.
Quite fruity (somewhat – but not entirely – reminiscent of those Fino matured old Speysiders) and mature with hints of porridge and cereal. There's honey, oranges and a touch of pickle brine.
Fruity and tannic with a whiff of honey and even a touch of smoke, followed by green apples. Somewhat waxy and a nice creamy mouthfeel.
Lingering fruits, medium in length.
- According to Whiskybase info this is (in 2018) the last bottled expression of Glen Albyn.
