In the nose, a bit too impetuous and wild, after a few minutes but quite pleasant and without great weaknesses. I miss the real highlights a bit, especially since I consider 90 € for a 9-year-old Glenallachie despite the current whisky hypes for something too expensive.
The Glenallachie shows at first very stormy. You have to be careful about this, the alcohol stings quite clearly in the nose.
Behind it is a mixture of caramel and milk chocolate coated fruit, which you can enjoy at fairs. But also a slightly immature note, which varies somewhere between sour fruits and a slight sulfur influence, which I believe to perceive. The longer you give the malt some time and air, the more it wins in the nose. The alcohol evaporates downright, now the malt looks much more mature and pleasing. The aromas blend together, it is a bit drier, wineier and fruity-tart.
Significantly quieter than in the nose, in fact, almost 62% Vol. Need a few seconds to bring their horsepower on the road or tongue. Here, sweeter and more fruity than last in the nose, the immature or slightly disturbing notes are completely gone here, which is the malt to good. Not very complex or incredibly varied, but pleasant to drink, with beautiful sweetness and for lovers of wine barrels certainly not a letdown.
Medium long, slightly dry and with a gentle spiciness. Here he shows himself then again vigorously and warms the throat neatly.
