  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 ...

  3. Misery scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    `Glenallachie 12/46%`
    In the aroma of malt-candy profile, followed by caramel and floral motifs, perfumes, bananas and pineapples, tropical juice. Honey and sweet spices in the dominant taste, raisins and chocolate, a few coffee shades. The finish is medium length, hot and pepper, hazelnuts, bitterness and astringency of dark chocolate.

    At the tasting there was a feeling that I had come up somehow better, or the fact is that there were other snifters, or just in comparison with the tarmac smoky Benromach, it seemed fresher, lollipop and brighter in taste. Against himself, he is not bad, but somehow already without special delights. Some sort of understatement remained.

  5. dRambo scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    for me the best product of the new range, a lot of malt for the euro, know nothing more than 50 ¬ which gives him the water.
