Review No.136. Glen Marnoch Limited Reserve Bourbon Cask Finish

 

Whisky: Glen Marnoch Limited Reserve Bourbon Cask Finish Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 40%

Nose: Fruity, floral and grassy, butterscotch, alcohol

Taste: Vanilla, caramel, burnt toast

Finish: Vanilla

Score: 2.25

Summary: As you can tell from my tasting notes there is not much to say about this one.  I am not sure what is meant by bourbon finish in this instance because I would assume that this has been matured completely in refill bourbon casks.  This is a very light whisky with distinct sweet notes.  I am not quite sure what the purpose is with this malt.  It tastes fine but it is not interesting.

 

 

Scoring scale: My scores reflect a balance of the overall experience, availability and cost for a whisky,

1 – not to my preference

2 – tastes fine but does not excite me

3 – more to my liking and would revisit occasionally

4 – very much to my liking and would consider as a regular feature on my whisky shelf

5 – permanent feature on my whisky shelf
