Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 18-year-old

22 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.02 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    I do not like - the nose is too common for my age and the price range - with patience you will find a few nice flavors here, but on the palate and finish it falls even further. I am glad that I do not have 10cl or even a bottle of it.

    Really very intense he is for his alcohol content - who the style is - because the price may go ok - not for my taste.
    • Nose
      Apple, apple cider vinegar, flour dust, artificial not particularly pleasant citrus note, as I know of many modern flora & fauna bottlings from the Bourboncask and there already did not like, citrus peel, multivitamin candies, cheap multivitamin "nectar", then again beautiful citrus oil and orange oil, sweet curly Grass, ripe mild wood notes, tea and flower aromas - unfortunately very hidden behind the obtrusive ZItrusnote that exerts on me the charm of a toilet block
    • Taste
      fresh - mint, pepper and citrus oil bring pleasant freshness, walnut shells, Grapefriutschale, equally noticeable bitterness on the palate - I do not feel it is too bitter - but especially delicious just not, beautiful creamy oak, sweet sour basic note with a light ZItronenaroma - The association probably comes from the mint oil, to light sherry notes - but these flash only briefly, then drown in citrus and bitter grapefruit peel.

      he tingles - as of coal acid on the palate - a mixture of spice and Sprittigkeit

      I do not like what I like -
    • Finish
      brings me nothing new, medium to long, but mostly bitter - everything else is subordinate to that for me (I've already had half a dram yesterday, there it was as well)

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    [September, 2018] Somehow I am sceptical if a purely blend-oriented distillery offers a single malt core range from one day to another - just because the owner changed. This whisky was produced 18 years ago when nobody ever thought of a Glenallachie single malt bottling. So can this be really good?

    ...finally it is better than most other standard single malt whiskies these days, what is an achievement in itself. It is not really earth-moving but easy-to-drink and without any obvious flaw. Nevertheless this unknown malt (for the broader market) is completely overpriced according to my taste buds (but the investors want a return, what else?)...
    • Nose
      88 88
      The nose offers a washy-malty profile with delicate heather honeys, barley sugars, some shy herbs and the smell of a well-equipped flower shop in the midst of summer. It is not really bold and impressive but it is balanced and enjoyable. After some time of breathing an interesting and delicious aroma of roasted coffee beans pops up...
    • Taste
      85 85
      The palate is rather two-dimensional on sugary sweet and bitter herbal (tannins from the wood) flavours. If you chew it for a while the roasted coffee beans flavour pops up again which is quite nice. Water turns the dram smoother and releases some additional milk chocolate and less bitter flavours. I like it best somewhat reduced.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The dram arrives warming and coating on the palate with a slightly bitter-astringent feeling from heavy tannins. The finish is of medium length with more shy milk chocolatey flavours and a slightly astringent end (tannins again).

  3. didi1893 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A sentence with "x", that was probably nothing. This malt is just too bitter for me, only the nose could convince halfway. White pepper is still sticking to the palate, bitter and tart wood elements mingle with sour citrus fruits. With a lot of good will, I award 80 points today ...

    21/19/20/20 (80P)
    • Nose
      Pale amber shines in the glass while an oily streak forms on the glass wall, from which small drops gradually dissolve. Creamy toasty aromas rise, malt and vanilla blend with hints of slightly sour fruit flavors. The nose is relatively one-dimensional, from time to tickle the alcohol discreetly in the nose. Citrus fruits blend with a slightly grassy and floral aroma, slowly appearing dried dates and raisins. For a moment, naturally-fermented apple juice comes to my mind ...
    • Taste
      Herb and bitter the first sip flows over the tongue, I fold my nose and make my face like if I would bite into the shell of a grapefruit ... What's that? Suddenly spicy mountain cheese stings through the bitter citrus aromas, tart wood tones stick to the palate, a touch of white pepper runs through the throat and lays sharp over the tongue. Rancid and bitter walnut flavors appear, the flavor of this Glenallachie is far too bitter and bitter.
    • Finish
      Herb, bitter, Grapefruit, ....

  9. The Prophet scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    All sweet and delicate with very beautiful peppered lifts. A real treat ! Length in the mouth of beautiful bills. A gentleman from speyside. Too bad not to have it in cask strength by cons ...

  10. matts scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Character: Remarkably meaningless for an 18-year-old single malt. That after 18 years so little taste can arise, I could hardly have imagined until this bottling. Some citrus fruits, very watery, bitter. That's it.
    Rating: With all the understanding that you have to live with what is in the warehouses to inventory so dormant: with this 18er to restart GlenAllachie has done in my opinion no favor. For me a real taste disappointment. So we do not need to talk about the price. Today there are benevolent 75 points for it. Tendency 70 - not really better or more substantial than a Glenfiddich 12.
    • Nose
      Basic flavors: citrus, malt, vanilla
      Description: The nose is very restrained. In addition to some malt and a hint of vanilla, there is a portion of grapefruit and blood orange. And nothing else. Even after repeated and long tasting.
    • Taste
      Basic flavors: citrus, pepper, water
      Description: The mouthfeel is initially slightly creamy but, above all, relatively thin. In terms of taste, this filling offers remarkably little. Only with larger swallows a slightly peppery spice comes through. The watery mouthfeel remains however. In the transition to the finish, it is slightly bitter. As with the nose, I would describe it as a bitter grapefruit with blood orange.
    • Finish
      Basic flavors: bitter, oak
      Description: The taste of the finish is virtually non-existent. The drop sounds just mainly bitter after. That's probably all that the barrels used give.
