Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 12-year-old

34 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.14 points

  1. Gloin scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The smell is fruity and pleasant, a mixture of light sweet notes and a gentle acidity.
    When tasting, I immediately think of a juicy green color, the sour impressions begin to dominate.
    The finish is pleasant, but not very versatile.
    Overall a good drinkable whisky without mistakes, but also without surprises.
    The fresh barrels dominate, the sherry can only be found in the second sip
    • Nose
      Apple, pear, grass, behind it sweet plums, vanilla, white wine vinegar, a hint of tangerine, a little spicy wood
    • Taste
      Cool, noticeable onset, light tingling, delicate astringent, slightly sour, citrus, sour apple, apple juice and some tart orange, slightly bitter caramel and woody notes, creamy, a hint of anise, in the second sip then sweeter fruits, strawberries and a lot of banana
    • Finish
      Caramel, light Nordic beer, tingling on the tongue, mellow apple, less sweet than in the taste, banana medium in length

    This is a great 12 year old. Not too sweet, not too spicy, very nice to drink. Overall, very balanced. The palate gets what the nose promises. Great. The looks older ...

    very nice dram, it really makes me longing to summer evenings, where this whisky would perfectly match.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Very fruity and fresh, attractive. This makes me longing to nice summer eve's, with this dram in my hand. Apples, grassy.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Same as the nose: fresh and fruity. Not to strong or peppery, but absolutely not week neither. Fresh apples, grassy again.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Like the nose and taste, this one goes out easily, without being weak. Fruits, some grass and floral notes. Pretty long and pleasant finish.

  8. matts scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Character: A surprisingly light fruit filling with an extreme and equally interesting sweet and sour interplay of flavors. Slight tendency to bitterness. The sherry influence is limited here to the raisins. There are profound but not very little of that.
    Rating: I like the nose very well and the creamy, sweet and sour taste, I find delicious and exciting. A strange bottling that needs to be explored. On the one hand sweet-sweet, on the other hand sour-dry. With a kind of bitterness that I like. Definitely different in taste and very independent. I feel a bit like my first contact with the Clynelish 14. At least I did not have the GlenAllachie 12y in the glass for the last time. From me there are good 85 points for now.
    • Nose
      Basic flavors: citrus fruits, malt, fruits, sweetness, dried fruits, vanilla, honey, herbs
      Description: Right away, there are many beautiful citrus notes on the nose: oranges and lemons. In addition a lot of malt, green apples, pear, strawberries and neat sweet bananas. Delicate vanilla dresses the fruit notes and the strong sweetness. Over time, raisins are becoming more and more effective. Not superficial, but as a background. Some honey and a herbal mix that reminds me of oregano and thyme are also part of the party. In contrast to the 18s there are surprisingly a lot more to explore. I like it a lot. Even better with time.
    • Taste
      Basic flavors: fruits, sweetness, citrus fruits, vanilla, spices, herbs, oak, malt
      Description: Extremely soft and with a nice intensity, the drop laps the tip of the tongue. Immediately green apples, apricots and green bananas are present. In combination with vanilla and butterscotch a remarkable sweet and sour taste profile. In the meantime, it gets a bit spicy with a pinch of pepper and in the transition to the finish, the oak shows up. Then again malt, cereals and raisins. An unspecified herbal note provides a certain freshness; the basic taste remains creamy-fruity and sweet and sour.
    • Finish
      Basic flavors: oak, fruits, citrus fruits, vanilla, dried fruits
      Description: The finish is medium long and creamy. Beautiful oak wood, together with sweet apples, oranges, tart grapefruit and vanilla, sounds pleasantly creamy with raisins.

  9. LordBellamy scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    strangely enough, the wood gets even more prominent with water.

    Conclusion: I would have renounced the Virgin Oak, the oak is here too strong for me, he seems a bit too strong as designer whisky. Oh, Billy-boy, here you've overdone it for me a bit too much with designing. Why not just refine a classic vibe of bourboncasks and some sherry casks? Why this virgin oak nonsense? Yes, it gives the malt a bit more depth and structure, but kills it with its oak notes.
    • Nose
      85 85
      creamy honey sweetness, many fresh fruits (pear, passion fruit, lemon) and also a few dried fruit as well as nut shells, vanilla, many spices (ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon) and neat oak
    • Taste
      82 82
      nice onset, creamy, vanilla, lots of fruit, some oak, with neat pepper
    • Finish
      82 82
      medium length, a lot of honey, fruits, nutshell, behind strong oak notes with a hint of bitterness

  10. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Honest and decent whisky. A classic speyside whisky as they used to make them. Glad they didn't oversweet/vanilla/karamel this one.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fruity a tad grassy and chalk note. This is a classic highlander-speyside nose. I like this quite a bit.
      You get the classic green apple and pears, some hay and a touch of sour.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet and sour. Again classic higland-speyside. There is a slight nip from the alcohol, but nothing in the way of a good experience. There is a touch of menthol and chalk in the background.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length. There is a tiny sparkle a tannins in here. but overall there is vanilla, some wood and the fruitiness from the nose. It fades away with mild wood and caramel notes.
