1972 vintage whiskies

Glengoyne 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Amazingly fresh for such an oldie. Much prefer this style of Glengoyne to the sherried monsters which tend to drown the distillery character.

Berry's Own Selection Glen Grant 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.00%
8 A well matured and well balanced malt. The sherry notes tend to muzzle the distillery character. An iron hand in a velvet glove!

Berry's Own Selection Glen Grant 1972, 33 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 After a nose that can only be described as “hairy” it rather loses focus.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Berry's Own Selection Glen Grant, 37 Years Old, 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 51.80%
8 A dry character. Quite strictly framed by oak but releasing an interesting and complex spicy character.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Berry's Own Selection Glenlivet 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Lots of flavour but restrained and well balanced. Very confident. If there is a Speyside style, surely this is it.

Cooper's Choice Glenlivet 1972, 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Lovely glowing colour. A big Glenlivet, more robust than complex.

Duncan Taylor 1972 35 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.50%
8 A fruit basket ! Needs water to keep alcohol quiet. Quiet a restless fellow. The nose delivers layers of fruit.

Glenturret 1972 Limited Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.00%
7 More robust and less finessed than I remember.

Gordon & MacPhail Linkwood 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 A luxurious afterdinner malt.

Hart Brothers Balmenach 1972, 30 Years Old Port Wood
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.10%
7 Very distinctive. Bring on the chicken mole.

Hart Brothers Glen Grant 1972, 29 Years Old Sherrywood
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.60%
7 Glen Grant was one of the first malts to be bottled as a single malt, in the days when light-tasting spirits were often filled into heavy sherry casks. I have always felt that this overwhelms the spir...

Lombard 1972 Ledaig
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Simple, light and drying. Sip on a hot summer's day when you fancy a whisky, but not the heft of most drams.

Murray McDavid Mission Clynelish 1972
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Spectacular aperitif. I wanted to eat a whole salmon.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Old Malt Cask Ardbeg 28 Years Old, The Ardbeggeddon 1972, Sherry Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.40%
8 One of the best Ardbegs I have ever tasted. Full range of the distillery's typical flavours, lyrically combined.

Rare Malts Teaninich 1972 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 64.20%
8 This little-known malt almost always surprises me with its robust flavours.

Scotch Malt Whisky Society 1972 Birthday Bottle
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.60%
8 Lovely chestnut colour. Soothing. After dinner and in front of a log fire. A touch woody, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Single Malts of Scotland Clynelish 1972, Cask 15619
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.90%
7 Good, mature but still lively.

World Whiskies Awards 2007 - World's Best New Release - Winner Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

The Balvenie 1972 Vintage Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.40%
9 The ultimate dessert dram. Beautifully composed.

World Whiskies Awards 2007 - World's Best New Release - Winner Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

The Balvenie 1972 Vintage Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.30%
8 This oozes class and, for me, is streets ahead of everything else in this group.

The Glenlivet 1972 Vintage
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.29%
8 A little woody. Choice of cask?
