Whisky Reviews for Strathmill 1974 McC

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.00 points

  1. Waykid scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Quite a strange compadre, not alltogether unpleasant but the dominant offnote of furniture/floorwax is not very nice either.
    • Nose
      Mild and light, banana, some grass (as in lawn), floorwax and a bit of pinewood.
    • Taste
      Light, honey,  a bit weird dry grassiness, an offnote that was hard to define but in the direction of hazelnut and like the taste equivalent of the smell of furniture or floorwax. Bitter, truffles, the curious waxiness lingers but turns a bit rounder, some walnut, and dried figs, papayas and apricots.
    • Finish
      Medium-long with the floorwax and some dried fruit.

  2. Toffie76 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Dry, floral and too "perfumed". Cologne, solvent and sustained bitterness. Not my trip.

  3. Bishlouk scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Nose on citrus, green apple, anise and tree sap.
    Mouth quite watery, sweet and monolithic.
    The acidic citrus fruits return to the finish, with a layer of polish that goes back to the nose.

    A certain complexity, and yet I do not stick to this profile. Citrus and varnish do not do here, in my opinion, good housekeeping.
