Whisky Reviews for Westport 1997 BD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.17 points

  1. Segens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nice daily dram but also nothing super spectacular. I would have been preferred if the Oloroso finish would have been much longer time-wise as the sherry is just in the nose where in the rest of the dram you get the pure Bourbon influence.
    • Nose
      Oloroso is in the nose with honey, citrus and Westport shows its apple/pear character.
    • Taste
      it now is a bit more in the orange fruits corner with a hint of caramel and also oak from the cask is there.  
    • Finish
      Medium finish

  2. st7 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Westport is often described as Glenmorangie with a teaspoon of Glen Moray.
    But most likely…just pure Glenmorangie!
