1971 vintage whiskies

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Berry's Own Selection Invergordon 38 Years Old 1971
Single Grain - Scotland - 48.00%
8 The balance between sweet and sour is perfect. A grain whisky? I would have thought of an old bourbon.

Cooper's Choice Glenlivet 1971, 32 Years Old, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 This example has stood up to its 32 years in the cask very well. A good example of how supple an old Glenlivet can be.

Duncan Taylor Glen Keith 1971 33 Years Old, Cask 8066
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.80%
7 An old fellow on the edge of declining but with attractive sweet richness. No water, please!

Glen Garioch 1971
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.30%
7 The nose is more appealing than the palate. Not much complexity for such an old whisky. Pleasant though.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glen Moray 1971 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Glen Moray has never been seen as a glamorous malt, but it gains mystery with maturity.

Glenfarclas 1971 Sherry Butt
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.00%
8 Too long a maturation. When oak dictates the aromatic profile, it is hard to feel satisfied.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Gordon & MacPhail Mortlach 1971
Single Malt - Scotland - 0.00%
8 Magnificent in every way, especially the finish.

Invergordon 1971
Single Grain - Scotland - 48.00%
The most wood influenced. Medium bodied. Very focused spirit.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Karuizawa 1971 Cask No 6878
- Japan - 64.10%
8 Should only be consumed in small amounts by consenting adults. Highest recommendation

Kingsbury Glencadam 1971, 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.60%
7 Lacks roundness, structure, balance. I was sorry to hear that this distillery has been closed. Temporarily?

Old Malt Cask Clynelish 1971, 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.00%
7 There's more in the nose than in the finish. A really characterful malt. Interesting. This is one of the more medicinal expressions of Clynelish I have come across.

The Glenlivet Berrys' Own Selection 1971
- Scotland - 46.00%
7 A little cramped on the palate but has personality.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

The Glenrothes 1971
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 I have always felt that Glenrothes deserved to be more widely appreciated and this bottling confirms that opinion. It is on the sweet side, but beautifully rounded. A sophisticated afterdinner malt.

The Whisky Fair 1971 35 Years Old Olorosso Sherry Wood
- Scotland - 35.00%
6 Too old? Or too weak a new make to cope with the sherry influence. Or a poor cask ? Disappointing.

The Whisky Fair Springbank 1971 35 Years Old Sherry Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.00%
8 Incredibly well balanced .Aninviting complexity. Alcohol is tamed. As luxurious as a rum. Yummy.
