Whisky Reviews for Glenury Royal 1970

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.35 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

      Fantastic silence, depth and impressive diversity in all components, complexity, perfect balance, a sense of age and at the same time freshness, some kind of non-rooted ruffiness; there are not enough words to describe the grandeur of this, so I'll go to the figures.
    • Nose
      Open, fresh, tart, freshly planed oak board, wet leather, barnyard, lemon peel, honey-floral notes, wet grindstone, burnt Bengal lights, burnt sulfur on matches, a little greens, cucumbers, orange candied fruits, wildflowers, wormwood.
    • Taste
      Powerful, dense, tart oak, grapefruit crust, red pepper, creamy notes - boiled condensed milk, raisins, dried fruits, lemon peel, lollipops, butter, cream, very rich and varied, with all that very fresh and even brutal, whether.
    • Finish
      Soft, warming, oily, slightly astringent oak, orange peel, grapefruit peel, a little young bark, cream, butter cream, mint, a little eucalyptus - fine and long.

  3. dRambo scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Meets my nerves pretty much - yummy - especially - retrotyle, certainly does not suit everyone - it's very complex in a more limited-specific area. For me the finest 70 / 80s style with probably 25yo ++ refill sherry, bourbon or a Vatting of both Reminds me of the Bunna 1987 from the Maltman WID: 79349, this Imperial 1995 WID: 66592 and the Glen Ord 25 SR 1978/2004 - but also a Craigellachie or Aultmore I have to think. A decent resolution I would welcome (if necessary small lead) - today - after 1cl he gets 93,92,91 for N, T, F - I would buy depending on the price probably directly - but I buy nothing more: smile: Thank Thanks for the great Dram WB70
    • Nose
      Blindtasting:
      a pleasant tempting sweetness, some wax and dried orange peel, later rather fresh peeled tangerine peel, green tea, sweet grass, some geranium leaves, rose petals and jasmine flowers, everything is played around by delicate oak notes that come cultured and aged pulsating - so moving that they sometimes completely clear the stage for the other flavors and then come back - some chocolate and licorice in the luggage. Overall, flowers, wax and orange tones dominate - the nose is noble, complex and clear Water does not tolerate the nose quite so well.
    • Taste
      with a little water a strong start, the next sip must be smaller, nice sweet with fine delicate acidity, strong mouthwash, panna cotta, coconut cream with rose water, pepper, oak, fresh sawn boards, wax, furniture polish, orange - then increasingly dry in the Mouth, black tea with honey, nectar and dry fruits - the sweetness is so intertwined with the aromas - I think briefly of smoke, then light sulfur (broth but very delicate as a mist) or celery - very exciting and very long "chewable "
    • Finish
      a fine tingling remains on the tongue, a delicate wax film, orange and mint oil, from time to time flashes a bitter note, sometimes walnut shell - then dark chocolate - tends to go from warm to cold - to only mint, red pepper and some wax stay

  4. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    After trying a sample, I quickly went out and got a bottle... and convinced two of my other friends to get the same bottle. Just wanted to spread the joy around, and just in case I finish my bottle, I can just go over to their place and enjoy theirs. Very complex and enjoyable, from the nose to the finish. I'm usually slightly doubtful regarding these high scores on whiskybase for expensive official bottlings from extinct distilleries because I think sometimes these scores are inflated, but the score for this one is right on. 

  5. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 92 points Specialist

    Stunningly complex nose that needed a couple of drops of water to reveal its full glory. Very fruity (poached pears, strawberries and ripe apples) with rich oak, fresh barley, honey fudge and vanilla supporting things beautifully. Lovely, dark delivery on the palate, with caramelised sugars again supporting the fruity and woody notes. A creamy transition then leads on to a remarkably poised finish, with the fresh barley coming back to the fore. A really great dram.

  6. Black Widow scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    This Whisky was sold for 580,-€ at Whiskyauction 10/2015

  7. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The ‘Gone but not forgotten’ masterclass led by Colin Dunn at the Whisky Exchange show 2015 presented six drams, each from a lost distillery. They were: Glenesk ’69; Millburn ’75; St Magdalene ’78; Brora 9th release; Convalmore ’77 and lastly a Glenury ’70.
    N:  Another Clynelish’esque nose. with its sweet, sherried pancakes and sweet clotted/sour cream.
    T: Cautious beginning with an alarming bitter pinch - in a ‘wake up, slap in the face’ way. Big oils lead to chocolate with some dry harshness, but water is needed to sort that out. Once diluted, the whole expression then cakes the palate. Its edgy and brash, but ‘bring it on’ i say.
    F: Drying with a chocolate maltiness and a wood-soft blanket, Its one enormous dram once it gets going.
    C: Its a loud one, a Paul Weller whisky perhaps? Hell yeah! A standout whisky that can’t be ignored. Many peoples favourite of the six.
