Whisky Reviews for Speyside Finest 1975 DD
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.11 points
- What a delicious whiskey, This is in terms of complexity quite in line with the other undisclosed speysiders (read: Glenfarclas) from 1975. Here the focus is more on dark fruit, dried fruits and tobacco and less on the tropical fruit.
- Magnificent, multifaceted, perfectly balanced and deep whiskey, a symphony of shades and half-tones, age-related, but very bright and lively, giving the feeling of a festive summer evening.
Open, dry, delicate and airy, woody and floral shades, cognac, a little minerality - heated stones, brickwork; cut grass, light fruit motifs, leather goods, a little cilantro, apricots.
Dense, rich, bright, but soft oak notes, leather goods, a riot of floral and cognac shades (in the style of dry, light cognacs), sweet fruity and creamy tones interspersed with pepper-mineral waves.
Soft, airy, refreshing, woody-floral notes with light mineral and tobacco splashes, a little fruit, camphor and white wine like Riesling;
- In the nose i immediately get a varnishy scent, or nail polish coated in sweet sherry notes. Not very thick but very pleasant. Also alcoholic notes but not unpleasant. For some reason it seems a little bit young in the nose??but it's only a feint perception.. Some roasted nuts and vanilla as well. Not as fruity for me as i would expect. But very interesting, not boring at all.
Young fruit on the palate guided by the varnishy scent. A bit light, summer whisky for me.. Sugary after taste. 88 points for me.. The nose is the most interesting of this beautiful dram
- Tasting a '75 for the first time after quite some number of '73s. Let's see how this tastes.
Nose starts with tropical fruits and marshmallow. A hint of oak arrives with a sweet aroma of paint thinner.
The palate continues on with the tropical fruits and marshmallow, then a generous portion of honey and followed by a hint of smoke.
Finish is tropical fruits and spice with a touch of honey but short for what this is.
- Light and Fruity.
Not a very complex drink to be honest
Aftertaste has a bit of camphor taste in a nice way.
Overall value is good for the price range.
Slightly woody. Fruity smell.
Light, flowery taste. On the sweeter side.
As smooth as a 40 years should be. Aftertaste of camphor. Quite interesting and not a complex drink
- In my honest opinion, this one is less good than most other recently released undisclosed Speysiders with 70’s distillates. The abundance of tropical fruits is what I like so much about them and this one lacks that. The first sip was more fruity than the next sips in which the tobacco note becomes more prominent on the palate and especially in the finish. Considering the high price, this one scores 88 points in my book. Would not buy a full bottle of this.
