Whisky Reviews for Girvan 1984 SMWS G7.4

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.33 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Great whiskey, sunny, lively, the palette is not very wide, there is no special riot of halftones, the emphasis is on juiciness and density, excellent balance and power - and it works.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, dried board, lemon peel, vanilla, tobacco, carpentry workshop, wood dust, flower-candy notes, grain.
    • Taste
      Thick, full-bodied, tart oak and creamy sweetness dominate, strong pepper wave, juicy floral and tropical fruity notes, tobacco, grain.
    • Finish
      Light, rather warming, vanilla, creamy sweetness, oak, tobacco, astringent notes of young bark, tropical fruits - pineapple, mango;

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Jill Masterson's skin in Goldfinger
    Flavour: Spicy & sweet

    The nose was delightfully sweet – toffee sauce on ice-cream
    and banana, apple pie, corn candies, iced caramels, dusty muesli and dried
    apricots; added interest came from flowers, sawdust and fag packets in an
    oriental massage parlour. The unreduced palate had golden syrup, maple syrup,
    chocolate fondue with fruit and a dusting of oaky spices (cinnamon, nutmeg,
    clove); quite bourbon-like. On the reduced nose, leather and polished wood
    supported the sweetness of buttery waffles and salted caramel. The palate was
    sweet yet musky, like a Mars Bar with old spice – lip-smackingly tasty, we
    thought. The distillery is near the Ayrshire coast.

    Drinking Tip: After a nice lunch or with banana split
    dessert
