Glencraig 33 DC
Personal Comment
Color: Gold
A very fresh nose first, with scents of mint, ripe fruit, a hint of vanilla. The nose is soft and relatively complex, very nice.
A first impression in the mouth in a malty register, with notes of ripe fruit and lovely and slightly bitter hints. The taste is slowly evolving into discreet chocolate notes. The complexity announced by the nose is not confirmed in the mouth that nevertheless remains very pleasant.
The finish is long and warm, marked especially by the sweetness of milk chocolate already announced in the palate. The finish is more complex and intense than the mouth was.

Personal Comment
A remarkable bottling from the very first nosing. A great Speyside with sherry hints. The taste is really smooth and pleasant, despite the high alcohol degree, and a slight sherry hint is associated to really nice balanced malted touches. A exceptionally long finish. The colour gives away the Gordon & MacPhail's usage to add caramel to their bottlings... An excellent bottle in a very good although recent collection.
79/100
A rather fresh nose marked by sherry on a background of malt and wet wood, followed in the palate by a very pleasant taste on a malt background with strong hints of sherry. Remote citrus fruit touches make it a remarkably complex but also perfectly balanced whisky. A rather long finish, recalling the sherry.
84/100
A very smooth nose, marked by both sherry and ripe fruits, nicely perfumed and with no aggressivity at all. In the palate, a very nice evolution from ripe pears to fine wood hints, a touch of sweet citrus, to end on very nice malty notes. Nice complexity, and the high percentage of alcohol is really not obvious, because the whole is so nice and harmonious and smooth. The finish begins on a very warm impression, recalling the presence of alcohol, than developes quite long on nice touches, close to those the mouth detected earlier, and at the end a very warm feeling comes an completes the whole.

Personal Comment

Colour: Straw
A very nice nose where notes appear immediately peppery, nicely blended with the fresh cut grass, a feeling of toasted almonds and unfortunately a few discrete hints of yeast in the background. In any case, a very nice complexity and a lot of fun.
The mouth is at first more aggressive than the nose. Alcohol is definitely present and seems imperfectly controlled. It is also less complex and less expressive. Once the palate accustomed to alcohol, fruity notes appear, but the overall impression remains that of a pretty dominant alcohol, a bit overwhelming all the tastes.
The finish is pleasantly fruity, quite long. A mixture of fresh and fruity malty sweetness that contrasts quite strongly with the mouth

Personal Comment
Colour: Straw
The nose is initially quite discreet and fruity notes appear and even some hints of medicinal odors. Finally, it is the freshness of the green fruit that dominates. Once past the first impressions, we are dealing here with a well-balanced nose with some complexity.
Aeration helps enhancing this nose and it is very pleasant to smell after a few minutes.
In the mouth it is directly fruity freshness, mixed with a nice bitterness (like gentian) that dominates. The contrast between these two sensations gives a very interesting complexity while not unbalancing the whole.
A long, fresh finish prolonging perfectly the mouth.

Glenburgie 1992 WM
Personal Comment
Color: Light gold
The nose is delicately fruity with hints of marzipan or cotton candy. The peach and banana seem to dominate. Some smell of varnish in the background.
The mouth and nose extend perfectly here as the fruit dominates as well, with the same pastry notes like at the nose. The alcohol is well integrated and the whole is nicely coherent.
The finish is long and fresh and here also there is a great presence of fruit and an interesting balance.

Quite a fresh nose marked by cut grass and some fruity notes on the background. Not really complex and a kind of tingling (alcohol?) tempers the pleasure.
The first feeling in the mouth prolongs the nose adequately. Freshness and tingling. Freshness is the result of some slightly acid notes. This palate is pleasant even if it is rather flat. After a while, some light bitterness appears.
The finish keeps the memory of this bitterness and is of medium length, quite different from what the nose and mouth were.

Color: clear
The nose is clearly marked by a mixture of malted notes and hints of yeast. This is the kind of smells that I like very little in a whisky. Regardless of complexity, even if overall it is a whisky that seems technically without any problem.
Mouth at first seems more complex than the nose. In addition some timid malt chocolate notes, some bitterness and then a return of these impressions of yeast.
The finish is quite long, but always on the line between the malt and yeast.
This whiskyy is not to my taste. No doubt others will appreciate it, but the smell of yeast in a single malt for me is an absolute standard making that will I do not like ...
This whisky is also perfectly balanced, but I'm not fond of such profiles.
