Whisky Reviews for Glenkinchie 1974 GM
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.00 points
- The nose is nice on citrus herbs honey pineapple, the palate is really disappointing a bit cardboardy and metallic
- Strange mute with a lot of fried vegetables and potatoes, with all that quite empty some, not the most interesting release. Purely for research purposes it was quite interesting to try, the strength of the sensations is quite impressive for 40%;
Restrained, dry, the first nose - a freshly planed board; fryers, fried vegetables, leek salted fat, lemon peel, oak, fried potatoes with onions.
Saturated, oily, corn, oak, vegetable notes, pepper wave, lemon peel, grapefruit, leather goods, light industrial notes, machine oil, sweet lemonade shades.
Spicy, warming, red pepper, ginger, deep-fried vegetables, lemon rind, berry notes - mountain ash, black currant;
- The nose is nicer. This whisky does not necessarily make me vibrate without having defects.
Nicely tangy: can be a little lime, pineapple. A little straw and a hint of cardboard or old newspaper. At aeration, a young / green side develops: pear and peach relatively little ripe, grass freshly cut.
A little soft and much sweeter than the nose. Apple chard, old leather, pepper and toffee.
Slightly bitter, woody and drying but not unpleasant.
- I can appreciate this style of whisky, nice and light Lowland style.
Herbal, grassy, sweets, honey, cardamom, wet newspaper. With just a drop of water: sweets more in the foreground, grassiness almost disappeared, a more phenolic nose now. Prefer the nose without water. After a long time licorice also enters the nose.
Oily, furniture varnish, honey, sweet foam candy or spekkies (the Dutch will know what I mean). With just a drop of water: still oily, more of the typical Dutch candy.
Licorice, a hint of white pepper, brine, honey. Keeps lingering with peppered salty honey. With just a drop of water: licorice and honey remain, white pepper less so.
