Glen Spey 1996/2008 “Der Whisky”

by Oliver Klimek on September 14, 2010

German forum bottling – 57.3%

My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Water with a faint hint of yellow
Nose: Malt, citrus fruit, vanilla, hints of cake dough become stronger with a little water
Palate: Porridge or muesli (I can’t really decide), malt, vanilla, lemon, white pepper.
Finish: Medium long and doughy.
Overall: The extremely pale colour hints to an inactive cask. In fact it was a dead one. Don’t bother.

Rating: 55/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

You tagged it “value5” instead of “value0” 🙂

About those ratings, do you have somewhere on the blog what price 1, price 2 … mean in terms of euros, pounds or dollars ?

Anyway, good job mixing rare/easy to find/good/bad/expensive/cheap whiskies 🙂
