    Tasting Notes by WhiskyNotes.be (24/11/2016):

    Nose: nicely fruity. Gummi bears, orange juice and vanilla marshmallow. Something slightly milky (milkshake). Sweet grasses and hay. Then back to strawberry notes and peaches. Wax candles. A little eucalyptus and oak.

    Mouth: bittersweet onset, certainly oaked. Herbal honey, peaches on syrup, a little pepper. Pineapple cubes. Hints of vanilla custard. Sweet aniseed, grasses and sweetened tea towards the end.

    Finish: long, oaky, showing pepper and mint, with green tea and just a little tangy oak.Comments: a rather oak-driven Glen Spey, without crossing a line and bringing enough sweet fruity notes to keep the right balance.Score: 89/100.

  3. Pieter S scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Date is 1978 instead of 1977. State incorrectly noted on the site.
