Whisky Reviews for Glenmorangie 1971

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.22 points

  1. jay83 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    There are definitely more complex malts out there, especially concerning the panoply of flavours. But what makes this one special is the subtle and almost perfect symbiosis between spirit and wood. Sensational structure !

  4. cuhp scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Ridicously good taste and finish. Tasted blindly.
    • Nose
      At first almost sour, then mushrooms, juniper and afterwards more classic sherry. Grapefruits, plums, madeira, chalk, blueberries, tea and liquorice. ABV seems high.
    • Taste
      Soft and silky taste with burnt caramel and strawberries. 
    • Finish
      Wood (not too much, just a perfect amount), cinnamon and muscat.
