    Also a good malt but unfortunately not what I had hoped for it. Have the PX together with the Moscatel and Port tasted and unfortunately this is the weakest. Still a good malt that really blooms with water. The other two have gotten more in the nose.

      Phew first only sweetness and alcohol. You have to get used to the 61.4%. Then comes the typical for Glenallachie honey and malt note. Some raisins and glucose but I think it needs water. Ah much better - now dark spicy honey, caramel and some peppery oak next to the PX sweetener and raisins.

      Wow first great sherry sweetness, honey and sweet plums, is pure better than expected. Water makes it nice and smooth (a bit of tingling is still there). and almost weird sweet. Unfortunately, it lacks complexity and character.

      PX sweetness, fine tart oak and numbing alcohol. Water march. Wow here, water spouts so much. Plum jam with cinnamon sugar and chocolate rasps. Mild spicy oak and slight bitterness. Medium.

    It is of medium viscosity and its bouquet is of relatively strong intensity. I have aromas of raisins, citrus, malty sweetness and honey. Moderately complex. Pretty sweet taste. He has well-integrated alcohol and a relatively heavy body.

    The water will help in taste (it will increase drinkability), but it will take away the scent.
    • Nose
      Grapefruit juice, dried orange, marzipan, milk chocolate, toffee, wet wood, lipo, walnuts with sugar, sherry.

      After adding water: Varnished wooden furniture (old), malted barley and yeast.
    • Taste
      Nectarine, alcohol, sweetness, bitterness, banana, coffee bean, pear and rum.

      After adding water: Wafer lemon filling, orange peel, cherry liqueur, malt, herbal liqueur, cough syrup and bitter caramel.
    • Finish
      Cocoa beans, peach and mango.

      After adding water: Unripe gooseberry, unripe fruit in general, black tea, blackthorn (plum fruit), bourbon.

    Not an exaggerated PX, nay! Surprisingly it's a bit short finish for me despite the 60+% ABV.
    • Nose
      Apple, honey, citruses, malt, PX sherry, raisin, caramel and spicy oak.
    • Taste
      Sherry, honey, dried fruits, cocoa, tannic oak, orange peel, pepper, ginger and cheese.
    • Finish
      Medium length, fruity, spicy, oaky.
