Glen Marnoch 29 Year Old – 40.0% [Aldi Festive Releases]

prgfpntm-768x1024


NOSE: 26

Baked red apples dominate with hints of icing sugar and all-butter pastry.

PALATE: 23

Those apples calm down a little allowing light oaky notes to rise up, almost soft enough to be European oak.
Vanilla is definitely present and possibly the faintest hint of maple syrup.

FINISH: 17

Very thin finish.
Quickly dissipates to leave next to nothing on the taste buds.

Vanilla is still there and is the most forthright of the notes.
A small hint of honey is there if you can catch it.

PERSONAL: 6

A very easy to drink, Autumnal dram.
A little thin, but what do you expect at 40% ABV?
The nose carries this dram in my opinion as the palate isn’t quite strong enough to wow you; the flavours are good but there just isn’t enough of each of them.
No indication of region on the label but I would hazard a guess at Speyside and I’d say it has a lot of characteristics in common with Longmorn‘s output – definitely not a bad thing.

TOTAL SCORE: 73
