Whisky Reviews for Old Perth 1996 MMcK

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Impressive!
    And then there is also the 20 Year Old Old Perth. I will not make another guess as to its components, for the sympathetic but strong headed Kenny Mackay will do as he pleases, in my experience.
    Fantastic nose on dark fruit, tobacco leaves, Pink Lady apples, autumn leaves and freshly polished leather. Some heather and mandarin, dark chocolate and cinnamon. Surely a sherry cask went into the mix. This is very promising.
    Creamy and spicy, very warm on chili pepper, paprika and caramelized ginger. The ABV is king! Very sturdy arrival. Again mandarin, joined by some Seville oranges, hazelnuts and herbal tea. Chewing tobacco and a bitterness as if from pink grapefruit. One single drop of rancio. Very, very good.
    The finish is long, warm, drying and zesty at the same time.
    Impressive! With exclamation point. Can still be found for around 100 EUR. Recommended!

    Tasty strong and full of orange and tobacco, again my thing, probably. not the most complex, but you can always drink something like that.
    • Nose
      Lots of red apple, leather, tobacco, cinnamon, toffee, honey, some tea, autumn leaves and tangerine, promising aromatic and delicious round notes
    • Taste
      Bitter orange, very full, lightly lit, but only light, herbal honey, roibo tea, tobacco, tannins, cranberries, malt, hazelnuts
    • Finish
      Warming, tea, tobacco, orange zest, grapefruit rests, a few nuts, medium length
