Whisky Reviews for Mosstowie 1973 LMDW

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.20 points

  1. Maltysers scored this whisky 88 points Member Junior

    Beautiful nose, floral, subtle, intoxicating, we would spend hours and the mouth is only disappointing: we fall from his tree is mono directional, good but without great subtlety. Pity

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Mixed balance for me. Enthusiasm 4/5 for the nose, 2/5 for the rest Whisky n ° 1295
    • Nose
      At once intense and delicate, it deploys vanilla, butterscotch, all in a woody atmosphere that is reminiscent of bourbon. With a little water, softer.
    • Taste
      Spicy, it seems to me a little unbalanced. Even with a little water, the balance leans too much on the side of spices.
    • Finish
      Some bitter tannins, this final is impressive but a bit steep.

    Tasting Notes by Whiskyfun.com (November 9, 2012):

    Colour: straw.

    Nose: we’re really walking in the forest after a heavy autumnal rain. Moss, fern, mushrooms, damp earth, wild flowers (foxgloves? Never mind…) and then these metallic notes that work so well, sometimes. Around grandpa’s old toolbox… Very different and very beautiful so far. With water: it gets even more different. More old tools, a pot of old rusty nails, gooseberries, cured ham, sparkling mineral water and just whiffs of lilies (not as heady as lilies).

    Mouth (neat): superb! It’s very much alike the 1970 (ie : Mosstowie 28 yo 1970/1998, 59.6%, Cadenhead, Chairman's Stock, bourbon barrel, 198 bottles; SGP:471 - 85 points), only smoother, almost silky despite the power. Yellow chartreuse, figs, cough medicine, rose water, beeswax… In fact it’s very tertiary. Ah well… With water: maybe not the best swimmer ever, becomes a little disjointed and watery (even at +/-45% vol.) but who needs water!

    Finish: medium long, fresher. Pistachio ice cream, cinnamon and touches of fresh coriander and sorrel.

    Comments: lovely and very unusual (which is lovely as such). It’s got something of some very old Irish, in a way.

    SGP:451 - 88 points.

  4. zby0001 scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    I have never tried such a single cask of mosstowie, like that you go into a forest, vanilla, fresh fragrance of the soil, when you lose your way, when suddenly a suckling pig in front of you, so amazing, and without a doubt my favorite, even better than BRORA 30 2002 

    tonight,the best of all

  5. Titi94 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    These notes of LMDW perfectly reflect the impression left by this single malt during its discovery at Whisky Live in Paris 2012. Thank you Jean-Marc!
    • Nose
      The nose is rich, original. Each note of the aromatic palette is at its peak and at no time does one feel any sag. This Mosstowie is at the same time deeply rooted in the ground and of a magnificent pureness.Spring and floral to wish it evokes a cornucopia. Its fruits are juicy and exotic (ripe banana). A magnificent note of star anise comes to crown the whole.The empty glass exudes pleasant notes of barba-papa.
    • Taste
      It does not give in to the nose, the mouth adds an extra soul.Spiritual, it diffuses notes of incense, leather and wax. Generous, it offers ripe fruit, noble spices and heady flowers. With a lot of purity, it goes to the essential balance, freshness, precision, elegance are a few words dropped.
    • Finish
      Long, tender. With ever so much delicacy and herbaceous originality, its aquatic tones (water lily) are a perpetual source of enchantment. The natural class of this version bursts into the open.

  6. Titi94 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Comments from LMDW: From 1964 to 1981, the Miltonduff distillery produced a second single malt called Mosstowie, rarely bottled. This 1973 has something to raise the passions and give birth to vocations as its exotic fruity, aniseed freshness and generous mouth are in tune.
