Glen Parker Speyside Single Malt review

Glen Parker


If you know about Glen Parker Single Malt’s reputation and wonder why I bother reviewing this one, it’s because Whisky Bible’s Jim Murray gave it 86 points. Well, actually this isn’t much of a review. I can’t come up with much words for it.

I hardly could spot any flavors, except some rotten apple aromas. Or was it fermented apples? Correct definition might be: like someone had added way too much water and volume to an extra dry apple cider.

The good review by Whisky Bible and my own bad experience with Glen Parker Speyside Single Malt surely strengthen the rumours that this might be various distillery left overs without any consistency.

Fortunately Angus Dundee managed to make a better whisky with Smokey Joe.

    Glen Parker is possibly one of the worst Single Malt whiskeys I have ever put in my mouth.
    Th label is a kick, as it reads ….” Matured in Oak Barrels for a ” Period ” [lol] of years.
    Its the dregs lads. Just the facts……
    I remember when I found a bottle of Glen Garioch for 20.xx USD.
    Now that was a Colossal great find in contrast to this bargain Scotch.
