Hillside - Glenesk 1971 25 Years Rare Malts Selections

1 item left


From the distillery also known as Glenesk comes this little-seen and hugely under-rated Rare Malts bottling under the Hillside moniker. A bit OTT at full strength, with a drop of water this dram reveals a hidden honeyed beauty.

TASTING NOTES (by Whiskyfun.com)

In other words: Glenesk. Colour: gold. Nose: very grassy and malty attack, growing more and more herbal. Extremely strong, hard to enjoy neat. It gets a tad smoky with a few drops of water, with also quite some honey. Mouth: very powerful attack, with some nice notes of spices and herbs beyond the sweetness that make me think of Oban. Some notes of fresh apricot. A good, kind of 'natural' one, too bad the finish gets just a little bitter. 82 points.
