Whisky Reviews for Probably Speyside's Finest 1964 DL
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.71 points
- undisclosed Glenfarclas ;-)
First impression, thick and woody. Some greenness appears here, parsley and herbal notes. Unsure, but a very complex multitude of herbs. Like entering a chinese medicine store.
Lots of oak here, but seemingly mild. Pine cone freshener scent like taste, dry tree bark, herbal mix, angelica sinesis herb, rhubard and lingon berries.
Medium to low, slightly oily,bitter from the oak, damp.
- UD, Probably Speyside's Finest Distillery, Douglas Laing, XOP, 1964-2014, 40.5% Color: amber Nose: pine needles, garden herbs, later develop sweet fruit notes, orange, orange peel, milk chocolate Body: medium / oily Mouth: mild, sweet notes dominate, pepper Finish: mild, but then dominate bitter herbal notes Conclusion: 85P, beautiful and varied aromas, beautiful in the mouth, only the finish falls off
- A malt that gives you time in the glass always new facets, would be desirable a higher alcohol content. Due to the slightly weak taste only 89 to 90 points nose and finish 91 pts.
At first, notes of basil or parsley come in - easily after garden herbs. With some air, it develops in a more earthy direction combined with pine needles. Later comes notes of marzipan, maybe sandalwood and some incense sticks. Underneath there are also buttery notes with furniture polish.
due to the low alcohol content, it does not come with so much whopping, first of all come spices, possibly nutmeg?
peppery and slightly numbing like after chewing Szechuan pepper grains, long-lasting without becoming bitter.
