Whisky Reviews for Knockdhu 1974 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.60 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    This Knockdhu 1974 has a lot of rough edges and lacks the subtleness of most of the GM Brown Label.
    • Nose
      Strange nose of yeast, butter and turpentine. Rubber. Not very enjoyable. Later on more on cut grass and floral notes from a greenhouse. Pine.
    • Taste
      The palate is slightly better. Sweet barley. Zestiness of lemon and lime. Kiwi-fruit. Orange peel. Bergamot. Quite astringent and harsh though
    • Finish
      Medium long. A litte pepper. Ginger. Spearmint at the end.

    Quite restrained nose at first, but with a bit of time in the glass a fair few aromas began to come to the fore: hazelnuts and raisins (think Cadburys fruit & nut bar), damp dunnage warehouses, tinned peaches, engine oil, a hint of paraffin and a slight metallic edge. A small drop of water released some wet cardboard notes that weren't entirely welcome. Fairly sharp and metallic on the palate, but with a nice peppery finish. Worth trying for the nose (without water!), but don't expect too much else.
