Whisky Reviews for Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserve

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.09 points

  1. Dude1971 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    You have to take your time for it. Very pleasant mouthfeel. No sherry bomb - dry with a light sweetness.
    A little more alcohol might have done him good.
    • Nose
      Creamy, sherry, dry wood.
      It takes time for the aroma to develop.
    • Taste
      At the first sip of dry sherry, soft dry wood, slight sweetness.
      It takes time and then come out more Geschacksnoten - leather, some coffee, some tobacco
    • Finish
      Medium length, dryness and sweetness.

  2. Mascht scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sherry, dense, oily, mild
    • Taste
      Wood, soft
    • Finish
      short to medium, oranges

  3. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Much more complex than the 12-year-old standard whisky. The distillery contains 16-25-year-old whiskys, which I do not doubt after the tasting.
    • Nose
      Here is actually Sherreinfluss recognizable (which was not the case with the 12), dark fruits, nuts, plums and raisins, trail mix, some iodine, the basic character of Royal Lochnagar is still good to feel, malt, vanilla and in the foreground hay and green apple,
    • Taste
      Over all grassy Heunoten, quite mild, spicy oak, which brings some dryness, this stands against the Sherrysüße, which comes along with inlaid raisins, some salt is also to taste
    • Finish
      always salty and yet sweet, grape skin, medium long

  5. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    LMDW tasting note: Color: Dark amber. Nose: Deep and complex. A symphony of fruity and floral aromas invades us. In the background, there are intense notes of butterscotch and a freshness coming to balance the wood. The nose continues to evolve and develop. Palate: Lively and firm. It is marked by chocolate and butterscotch. Finale: Long, gourmet with notes of licorice and praline, it still remains as malty. The rose and the violet bring a touch both heady and aerial. It is punctuated by tobacco, ripe fruit and sweet spices. Comment LMDW: Floral, fruity & woody, Royal Lochnagar Selected Reserve is an elegant and refined malt, a sumptuous digestive that will be enjoyed preferably in the evening. Launched in 2007 to commemorate the first visit to Queen Victoria's distillery in 1848, each bottle is numbered. A very limited cuvée, it is also an excellent gift idea of ​​exception.

  6. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    It is complex and balanced, but doesn't blow you away. I would love for this whisky to be bottled at a higher strength, because I think that could make it go from a good whisky to a great whisky.
    • Nose
      It's well-balanced. Plenty of spices, some brown sugar and dark chocolate and a hint of saltiness. It's leathery, there's oak and it's also surprisingly fresh.
    • Taste
      It has a bit of that meatiness that made Mortlach famous. The whisky is very smooth with notes of oak, malt, red fruit and some spices.
    • Finish
      A lovely hint of barbecue smoke that just doesn't dissapear. There's also some orange and cereal.
