Whisky Reviews for Glen Deveron 20-year-old

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.50 points

  1. MrDvorak scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The aroma contains ripe waxed red apples with caramel and honey oriental sweets. The taste is very simple, slightly sweet, slightly bitter, woody-chocolate, raisin. Medium-length finish, woody chocolate.

    For a 20-year-old it is certainly not very multifaceted, but the problem here is only in the minimum strength, otherwise very good.

    RATING: 85pts - | 83 - 86 (B) → Good | - Not a “must”, but a nice-to-have.

  6. Gloin did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Aromatic, harmonious nose. Pleasant taste. The finish does not fit properly.
    • Nose
      fresh, orange, vanilla, almond, slightly grassy behind
    • Taste
      Gentle onset, soft body, sweet and creamy, caramel, mellow apple, orange, a hint of banana, only a little wood
    • Finish
      The finish shows the age, noticeably bitter oak, burned sugar

  8. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    So much water that ruins age.
    Tasted in a plastic cup at EDI duty free.

    Enthusiasm

    Nose 3/5

    Mouth and finish 2/5

    Whisky n ° 1719
    • Nose
      Influence of sherry obvious enough without it being very marked either ..
    • Taste
      Pretty much anything. Mismatched reduction.
    • Finish
      Bitterness too leaning.
