Whisky Reviews for Speyside Very Old Vatted Malt Sb
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.93 points
- Slightly meaty / Gravy-ish / light taste of "rookworst"
- Beautiful, really.
- Very good for the price
Rich, complex, ripe bananas, little peat and smoke, little honey and vanilla and wood notes, tobacco, nice leather notes
Punchy, peppery, touch of oak wood, subtle sweetness, citrus fruits, very little leather (the good one)
Long and burning, zesty
- Bij serge Valentin (Whiskyfun)
Speyside Malt Whisky (46.1%, Sansibar for S Spirit Shop, 579 bottles, 2015)
This one’s a ‘very old vatted malt’. Well, the older you get, the more
you feel that ‘very old’ ought to be ‘really very old’. Colour: dark
gold. Nose: it does nose old. Tobacco, embrocations, old liqueurs,
chocolate, cedar wood, old roses in an old vase, mushrooms… What’s not
to like? Mouth: oh, earth, roots, gentian, turnips, smoke, grapefruits…
Speyside, really? It’s really unusual, and really excellent. Wonderful
notes of humus, mushrooms, citrons, grapefruit marmalade, pickled ginger
(sushi, anyone?), old Champagne, mint liqueur, yellow chartreuse…
Finish: only medium, but wonderfully earthy, with softer raisiny tones
in the aftertaste. Lime. Comments: I-wanna-know-what-this-is! Speyside?
Seriously? SGP:462 - 90 points.
