Whisky Reviews for North British 1997 SV

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.33 points

  1. HunterRomario scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Tested in a blank test of three single grains at the bottom. Greenore 8 yo hit me the worst, Kilbeggan 8 yo then was a little better (79 points), and best was North British 1997 SV (82 points). It should be noted, however, that in taste the differences were really minimal (G8 77, K8 and NB equally 78), I had the feeling that all the samples were tastefully uniform, and so it was more interesting in the test, those jumps were really great (NB 86, K8 80 and G8 75). I did not see it in one, I was so impressed by my scent, and to some extent the similarities of certain parts of the aroma with some of the US rye and also the skin of the younger and cheaper Caribbean rums.
    • Nose
      Very interesting and surprisingly strong scent. Vanilla, sugar wool, to the grass, the cucumber lure. It sounds worse than it really smells. Remotely reminds me of some rye (Rittenhouse?). (86 b)
    • Taste
      Unfortunately, the body is thinner, looks young, alcoholic, sweet, taste simple and flat, very surprising for 18 years. In the flavor of lure. (78 b)
