Whisky Reviews for Coleburn 1983 SV

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A easy going and chewy Coleburn, but very drinkable.
    • Nose
      Starts sour-fruity with pink grapefruit, lemon and blood oranges. I also got some green bananas and peel zest. Later on some green flowery notes of geraniums and freesias. Wet grass as well. Soft and cuddly, very pleasant.
    • Taste
      Tastes likes the nose already predicted; lots of citrussy fruit notes. Lemon and lime. Grapefruit again. Also mango, papaya and some melon. Followed by more bitterness of green olives. Feint of smoked wood?
    • Finish
      Medium long with sour-sweetness. A litte black pepper. Some oak at the end.

    The nose smells like mashed banana with caramel at first and then lots of toffee.
    The palate is really creamy with some pepper and the banana & apple note fades to leave something slightly metallic.
    This reminds me of a syrupy old blend but the problem here is that the fruit fades too quickly leaving a dry palate.
    It is ok, but more suited to being in a blend than bottling as a single malt.

    Nose hay, floral, fruit towards pear, banana, (just not ripe) mango, the sweeter fruit, but also fruit towards citrus blood-apple, mandarin, lime; in the back is some pudding hidden. The longer he stands, the more pudding & vanilla comes up Taste fresh, sweet, banana again, a bit of green banana, fruit porridge, better food, blood apples, maybe a little bit of celery even (??), little fresh oak, slightly peppery. Has what a toothpaste taste (mint) Finish mix the sweet banana with a green banana and this with a hint of fruit porridge in the background. At the same time, the toothpaste also stays fresh. Very pleasant!
