Whisky Reviews for Speyside Malt 1973 Sb

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.35 points

  1. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    One of the best 7x-Speysider I have ever had in my glass!
    • Nose
      Lots of bright fruits that literally jump into your face, especially lemon, grapefruit, lime, passion fruit, with spices such as cinnamon and cloves and light floral, freshly cut grass
    • Taste
      again lots of citrus fruits, with passion fruit, apricot, banana, vanilla, and fresh green herbs, such as lemon balm, lemongrass, even lavender and licorice, soft, light harmonious acuteness of cloves and cinnamon
    • Finish
      very lemony fresh, with rising eucalyptus, sweet, the finish lasts forever and is still present the next morning as fresh in the nose - a madness flavor!

  2. MrMarmelade scored this whisky 95 points Member Senior

    Absolutely lovely, lively, fascinating, fruity and gorgeous - nearly perfect in every way.
    • Nose
      Very fine nose on fruits and herbs
    • Taste
      Wonderfully clear and brillant citric fruitbomb, tangeriny, with smooth spices and herbs like lemon grass and lemon balm; 2-3 drops of water make it perfect
    • Finish
      Extremely long on citric fruits and eucalyptus

  5. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    The alcohol content I have set with an alcohol meter to ~ 47%. Thus, the initially quite disappointing result, however, has developed positively and the bottle contents have increased.
    • Nose
      Smells very delicious after Fino sweetness paired with exotic fruit drops - slightly spiced and rounded by the barrel. With a few drops of water, the aromas are even more beautiful to the fore.
    • Taste
      The high ABV of 52% I find disturbing - it covers the flavors. With water: Much better! Can now easily compete with the other Speyside Fino Cask bottlings. Wonderful fruit mix with Fino sweetness in the foreground and a well-balanced herbal / spice mixture. Balanced - without burning and bitterness.


    • Finish
      The finish is long - sweetness and bitterness alternate. With water the bitterness disappears for the most part and the finish is pleasantly soft and round.

  7. Eilean a' Cheo scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    An excellent and complex whisky that at 43 years old remains vibrant on the mouth and wonderfully sappy and mossy on the nose.

    93(however it misses the je ne sai quoi factor to score it even higher)
    • Nose
      Resinous, herbs, aged olives, sappy trees, mossy forest, old tin boxes, ripe apricots, peaches and mangos, stewed tropical fruits.
    • Taste
      Wow! Everything from the nose but vibrant plus some citric notes. More fresh tropical fruits and some spicies as well. Fruity and floral green tea.
    • Finish
      Very long, mellowed,sweet and complex.

  8. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    That's wonderful. Enthusiasm 5/5 Whisky n ° 1331
    • Nose
      Vanilla and varnish, a combination that evokes some old grains, surprisingly. Very fragrant. Melted and honeyed to the extreme. Ah! Here are the spices that put it definitively in the category of malts. With a little water, the vanilla takes the ascendancy. What richness, what complexity. This woody evoking a bourbon.
    • Taste
      Complex fruity, honey, cooked fruit. Juicy and spicy. The addition of water makes it creamier, juicier, more silky and more fluid. Sweet spices.
    • Finish
      The spices again, in the continuity of the mouth in a way trèèèèèèèèè ressée and trèèèes deep but at the same time delicate and silky. With a little water, a hint of coconut and banana.

  9. Ivynor scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    a superb nose, a very elegant rendering.
    Very good product but foolish price. 90+ / 91-
    • Nose
      Very fine nose, slightly grassy, ​​with slightly destabilizing top notes (Bubble gum with strawberry). With aeration, there are touches of exotic wood and a background of mango and passion fruit. Also notes of honey and pollen.
    • Taste
      Alcohol well integrated, always this side bubble gum, but less marked. It's exotic, elegant, always a touch of honey, maybe heather.
    • Finish
      More indented, always fine and exotic.

  10. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    The palate wasn't as fruity as I would like and it's a bit too spicy for it to be directly pleasurable. All-in-all though, this is terrific. Everyone says this is most likely a Glenfarclas. I'm not going to argue against that.
    • Nose
      Bright orange/lemon, pomelo, sugar cane, dried mango, cotton candy, ginger, herbal tea with honey
    • Taste
      Myriads of little flavors, some fruits, but not as much as expected from the nose, lots of spice (actually numbs my tongue a bit).. with water, it becomes a bit smoother with a bit less spice.
    • Finish
      Long, still pretty spicy, a bit of an oaky ending -- it is 43 years after all.
