    Could use some water, lots of dusty oak but it lacks a little fruitiness to score 88+.

  7. Allandale scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    massively malty with  the sugars almost grist cocentrate.
    • Nose
      little bit of a salty malt?
    • Taste
      originally sharp,slowly evolves into a majestic  malt fest.
    • Finish
      slightly tart, as is often the house style.  But the malt is unmoved and the sugars are pretty. hmm
