Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 1990

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.36 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Maybe not a complete surprise that this is not my favourite of the series, as the alcohol percentage should normally be much higher, even after more than a quarter century of maturation.
    • Nose
      Fresh sherry notes, with juicy plums and cherry syrup, followed by a hint of cotton candy, as well as polished leather. A whisper of pineapple. Whispers of tropical fruit, such as pineapple. Slightly metallic.
    • Taste
      Quite a bit of oak, and a bit thin. There's some honey and sultanas, but it is also pretty spicy and acidic, more so than I expected. Hints of menthol, as well as passion fruit.
    • Finish
      A little more room for dried fruits here, as well as cocoa powder. Medium in length.

    In store sample

    Nose: Damp wood, brown fruit (honeydew, cherry, raspberry) a little waxy, earthy with wild mushrooms

    Palate: Thick texture, damp wood, kind of flat, some old fruit past it’s prime.

    Finish: a good dose of wood and fades away without much inspiration. Certainly different.
