Whisky Reviews for Glenlivet 1973 Minmore CA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.81 points

  1. Bishlouk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Houuuu what a nose and what a mouth! A venerable old man. But what a pity that this final is so short and that the flavors vanish so quickly in the mouth.
    • Nose
      Dried flowers, petrified honey, liquefied caramel. Pistil syrup (does it exist, that?). Fresh mint after aeration. Piouuuu what a nose!
    • Taste
      Extreme delicacy and lightness. Honey, young white and yellow fruits, and a light dust.
    • Finish
      (very short. A wooded drought, and the fruits die quickly.

    Cadenhead Notes:

    Summer 2015 Small Batch a rare vintage from one of the greatest of all speyside distilleries.

    Nose    Soft and juicy. Peaches, passion fruit, soft lime notes and also kiwi and watermelon. A great age whisky delivering a truly amazing nose.

    Palate    More juicy fruits. For such a delicate whisky this feels very thick and rich. Olive oil, hints of Sauvignon blanc and lots of syrupy fruits coats the whole palate.

    Finish    Dried citrus fruits with some soft woodiness. Creaminess grows but mingles with lots of thick tropical fruits. Another amazing rare vintage from our small batch range.
