Whisky Reviews for Cooley 1995 DR

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.50 points

    Bah! Awesome Cooley. Really dig it. Fruity, maritime, powerful. I had the D. Rattray 15 year Cooley and although it was good it was a little too much white pepper and spice for me. This one is just much more well rounded.

      White and exotic fruits, maritime salinity, some white pepper but the whole is in balance. Great power and balance.

      Full, rich. Brown sugar on exotic fruits. Kiwi, lychee, melon, dragon fruit. Spice is in check, balance is about perfect. Fresh ginger and wax paper.

      Spice kicks up a bit, more white pepper and ginger. Still fruity, salty. Solid dram. I like it best neat, but a little water is good too. Takes the spice back a bit.

    Salty sour and yeasty distillate. High quality fermentation at Cooley in 1995! Maritime flavours present and light peppery barley. The ex-bourbon cask brings all the tropical island fruits. Mango, passion fruit and pineapple. Theres some sweet mint, peppermint in the finish which is long and balanced. Tasted blind on 13.12.19 at the ‘SFWC X Malt&Bean 3’ tasting.
