1974 vintage whiskies

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Ardbeg Provenance, 1974, 24 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.60%
9 Rich and creamy, with huge flavour development.

Berry's Own Selection Glenlivet 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Very elegant and balanced on the nose. Oak tends to show off but the dram keeps its charm though.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Berry's Own Selection Inchgower 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 A great wee aperitif. Fresh and fun.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Blair Athol Berrys' Own Selection 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Best neat. Slightly firm but well worth a look.

Cadenhead's Loch Lomond 1974, 29 Years Old, Chairmans Stock
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.40%
7 The brilliant greeny-gold colour sets a summery mood. Remarkably fresh. Drier than other Inchmurrins I have tasted. Green salad rather than the more usual tropical fruit salad.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Chieftain's Choice Glen Scotia 1974 30 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 42.20%
8 What a lovely nectar. Great fruit and cream combination.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Connoisseur's Choice Ardbeg 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 Less boisterous than The Young One. The calm of maturity permits all the nuances to be experienced.

Cooper's Choice Aberfeldy 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 All the classic flavour elements. With its character "freshness", Aberfeldy often shines at younger ages. Here it excels in middle age.

Cooper's Choice Glen Albyn 1974, 28 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Fuller in flavours, and sweeter, than I remember Glen Albyn.

Douglas Laing Rosebank 1974 20 Years Old, The Whisky Fair
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80%
7 Who needs afternoon tea?

Glen Moray 1974, Distillery Manager's Choice
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.40%
8 The aromas remind me of a young woman I tried to bed in the early 1970s. She bit my tongue when I did something to offend her feminist ethic.

Gordon & MacPhail Benromach 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 I have always found Benromach assertively flowery, herbal, almost cedary. Will this highly distinctive character prevail in the new, smaller, stills introduced since the change of ownership? Tastings...

Gordon & MacPhail Rare Vintage Smith's, Glenlivet 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Somewhat lifeless and one-dimensional. Not the best old Glenlivet I've tasted.

Karuizawa 1974
Single Malt - Japan - 65.00%
6 Can't see the point in offering such an unbalanced oaky profile. It is whisky we want to enjoy, not a wood infusion.

Mackillop's Choice Glencadam 1974, Cask 10
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.90%
7 Showing its age, but still with the distillery character. Glencadam has its devotees and, with the distillery's future uncertain, supplies are finite.

Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

Murray McDavid Mission Glenlivet 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 The most feminine Glenlivet I have encountered.

Rare Malts Glen Ord 1974, 23 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.80%
8 Far paler and less sherried than the main version from this distillery. I would like at least some sherry to round the gingery spiciness, but I like the way that rose character comes through in this o...

Rare Malts Linkwood 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90%
7 I couldn't decide if this lacked a little, or was just subtle. Pleasing enough, aging with prettiness, but didn't do enough for me.

Scott's Selection North British 1974
Single Grain - Scotland - 53.10%
7 A pleasant summer whisky.

Selected by Berry's Glen Grant 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 47.80%
7 A rich sherry profile. On the oak side but elegant and deep. Water kills it.

Signatory Bladnoch 1974
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.60%
7 A whole range of aromas and flavours that are hard to pin down. Sent me into a reverie: a long weekend in a big house, with kippers for breakfast, toasted brown bread and good marmalade. The house als...

Strathmill Berrys' Own Selection 1974
- Scotland - 57.00%
6 A real shame.

The Whisky Exchange Glenfarclas 1974 30 Years Old, Bottle for the Whisky Exchange
Single Malt - Scotland - 50.50%
7 A lot of elegance and distinction but as if it has lost health. Surprisingly enough, waters boosts it.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

The Whisky Exchange Glenfiddich 1974 50th Anniversary of the Queen's Coronation
Single Malt - Scotland - 48.90%
8 Despite the rich descriptors, I found this slightly sharp with some vintage Glenfiddichs.

Yamazaki The Cask of Yamazaki 1974
Single Malt - Japan - 55.00%
A magnificent mouthful.
