Whisky Reviews for Girvan 1979 HL

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.33 points

  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    It has something in the way of refinement, which is what you would expect for old whiskies such as this.
    • Nose
      at first fusty with a queer offputting nose, then a hint of popcorn; some citrus again like an orange at the back of a cupboard or a pomander
    • Taste
      after holding it a glorious peachy sweetness comes through, albeit it seemed to be popcorn to start with
    • Finish
      spicy and burning, a touch over medium to medium->long
