Whisky Reviews for Speyside Single Malt 1977 TAA

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.17 points

  1. Lakerfield scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Unfortunately I didn't take detailed notes, but this is a wonderfully concentrated fruity dram. Oily, zesty and enough space for the malt. The nose didn't fully translate to the palate though. It was thinner than anticipated and quite minty. Still quite flawless, but not shockingly impressive for the age given.

    Based on a sample.

  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N- Scents of concentrated ultra ripe fruits, warming oat porridge with sweet dark raisins. Quintessential old malt effect, doses of sweet liquorice candy, some herbs infuse treacle that brought out tinge of green element that evolved to beefy meat jus, savoury, as well get greener as it goes on. Evolving around various dried fruits. Prunes and the monk emerged at the tail.

    P- Melt on the tongue chocolate brulee, sweet with light tan of smoked meat, quite perfect. But wee bit thin and not develop as much as the aroma, lack some stamina to swim to greatness.

    F- Medium, mellow out well with firm body, but with the sweetness leave a void that needing to fill.

    Going only on year, region and abv, could this be a bottle share with this? https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/72316/speyside-region-1977-w-f
