Whisky Reviews for Banff 1974 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.47 points

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Dusty, dry straw and a nice orange note is what gets my attention first.
    This one gets quite floral in the glass, then bucket loads of fruit gums, with biscuit and marmalade.
    The initial mouthfeel is a little week but a healthy dollop os spice is in the mix which adds interest then some caramel, but the lack of power is a problem and it fades quickly.
    Profile wise this reminds me of the very first batches of Cardhu 12 year when they changed to the square dumpy bottle.
    The nose is the best part but always nice to taste a an Old Banff.

  2. MaltMartin scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Old fashioned style whisky. Typical G&M CC from the 1970 's, which they don't make anymore nowadays.
    • Nose
      Maly, hints of perfume, hay, some peat as well.
    • Taste
      Mellow, oily, medium dry, smoky as well.
    • Finish
      Clean, gingery, some bitterness.

  3. Feusi scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A well balanced whisky, sweet toffee and of course with 40v% easy and nice to drink, unobtrusive and pleasant. What a pity, this distillery is closed.
