Allandale
Connoisseur Allandale Tasting note
05 Mar 2017 3:00 pm
Allandale gave this whisky 93 points
Color
Mahogany
Nose

Ahhh: Sherry notes of Chrismas cake,black cherry and raisins. There is leather, wet coal, oils, dense smoke, puffing on any pipes with rough shag. Gothic. Very good. Lovely.

Taste

A massive physicality -this bulges in the middle of the mouth, reluctant to move.There is sweetness- a lot of it- but always balanced. Spiced,wild fruits, bitter barks. Antica formula. 

Finish

Smoke begins the release itself. Long and beautiful . Complex.Amazing whisky.

Comments

The cask influence  is 30 years, but is not dominated. Very good.

Color
Old oak
Nose

Heavy oak, very deep and intensive dried fruits, apricots, ripe bananas, touch of vanilla

Taste

Punchy, liquorice, oily, smooth oak wood with subtle sweetness, with a little vanilla, almost no bitterness despite the heavy oak, dried fruits again, a little raisins and dark fruits.

Finish

Long and warm, now it becomes a tad bitter but doesn't hurt at all. With water the bitterness goes away and more spicy aromas come up.

Comments

I agree with the others that this is probably not a typical Springbank and it has indeed a lot in common with a good old Strathisla from the sixties - fortunately I also like the old Strathislas very much. Thus this one is a very good one for me too.

Color
Old oak
Nose

Pine resin, forest fruits - black currants, leather and liquorice. With water more spices, Gluhwein and cinnamon.

A classic and very complex profile like some old and very good Glen Grants, Strathisla and Longmorn sherries whiskies from G&M.
Taste

Plums, liquorice, some coals and eathy. Forest fruits, some pepper and later more waxy.

Finish

Vanilla, custard cake and apricot. Coffee, strawberries and a wood. Overall more dry sherry.

Comments

End of the year 2015 tasting with Aby and JJ

Sample available on www.whiskysample.nl

This is the 30 year old bottling from Springbank's much lauded Millennium Set. The set of 6 contained whiskies bottled at 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years of age. This received an impressive average of 91 points from 7 of the Malt Maniacs.

very good springbank, but hardly recognizable as one. Reminds me of an old Strathisla i drank earlier.
