Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2008 ANHA

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.63 points

  1. schero scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Great Dram, Oloroso without dryness. Blind I would have estimated the 20 years old.
    • Nose
      Raisins, coffee, cigar box, dry wood, oranges
    • Taste
      Pure raisins, plum jam, then chocolate without end, no bitterness, no dryness, is getting thicker and creamier
    • Finish
      Very subtle oak tones surround the bare chocolate, still feeling nothing of bitterness or dryness

  2. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Nice dirty ... as I like it. Scho's sherry, but not the gentleman's variety. Raisins, leather, juicy plum jam. Damp tobacco, oak drawer. These dried orange slices, as at Christmas. Herbs and a trace of balsamic. With some time in the glass comes warm espresso.
    • Taste
      Sweet, full, syrupy start. Then comes the sherry with chocolate and dried fruit. Slight dryness spreads in the mouth, which is again covered by a sweetish tobacco note. Nice interplay. In the taste of the colleague runs clearer "cleaner" than in the nose. The alcohol is discreet and brings minimal sharpness. A cooling menthol note comes after.
    • Finish
      Medium. First come herbs without end. Then slight bitterness. And then flow, warm chocolate. Which covers the entire throat.

    Yes, with such sulfur / sherry boards, you can not help but think of a few names. I like that, but not for everyone. Here it is also a bit monotonous, except for the sulfur is not so much. Personally, he is a bit too dry for me.
    Notes from a Blin tasting. Okay, Glenallachie was not under the name now. The alcohol is extremely well integrated, I would not have come to a barrel strength in life, I would have given him because of the mighty bitterness twice the age. That he is so young, however, explains well the one-dimensional.
    • Nose
      Full Sherryladung immediately, sweaty and sulfurous. Substantially more active after a certain amount of time, the sulfur is better integrated, dried fruits, especially raisins, sweeter overall. The sweet overripe fruit notes continue to increase and some grass is there too. Warms up more sulfur and a good punch acid from the barrel. To make it clear, it's the good sulfur, matches and Co., no rotten eggs! Nevertheless, you should probably rather with the warming.
    • Taste
      Very sweet with a mild onset, again raisins, dries increasingly noticeable. Many herbs and dark chocolate behind. The consistency is slightly oily, but rather thin. In a second sip dry. In the third almost bitter, hui!
    • Finish
      The finish starts dry and then becomes increasingly sulphurous again. It warms up for a moment and is medium long.
