  1. aspa scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Sherry bomb as the color would have expected. Boiled red wine and all kinds of candied fruit. Tart and slightly bitter. Raisins and low alcohol.
    In the mouth more of the same, I can't say much about it, but clearly more alcoholic. Now the strength and the young age come through. It burns pretty peppery on the tongue.
    A strong sherry aroma remains in the finish, that was clear, and the tongue edges burn fiery for a long time. Uh that's too aggressive for me.

    Delicious but very genetic sherry malt that is too hot for me in the finish.

    Intense sherry bomb, which even in my nose, even in my opinion, even subtly carries the flavors of the distillery. For the young age really complex and full of flavors.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Immediately after pouring reveal intense fruit flavors, which are more reminiscent of red fruits in my opinion, even apples and pears. Gumminots mix with. After some time, dark fruits appear, plums and figs become clear, dark chocolate and a hint of tobacco, later subtly spicy, mineral and sweet, full sherry freight, a very rich variety of aromas.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Creamy texture, slightly tingling, perfectly integrated alcohol, the taste immediately plums, ripe blackberries, sweet forest honey, pleasant oak bitterness, tobacco, gum and subtle leather notes, dryness, dark chocolate. In the background lies dark fruit compote and already conveys depth and a tendency to complexity.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium to long, beautiful intense, pleasant oak bitterness mixes with sweet dark fruit, tobacco, slight dryness makes itself wide in the mouth.

  3. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    What the colour suggests nose and palate fully deliver. This GlenAllachie is incredibly rich and complex for its only 11 years. A potpourri of dark ripe fruits, chocolate, tobacco notes and loads of spices. The alcohol is very well integrated - perceptible, but not pungent at all. The ideal companion at the end of a successful day in front of the open fire. Certainly a must have for the sherry aficionado.

    • Nose
      A potpourri of stewed dark fruits, plums in armagnac and Christmas pudding. Sweet with Demerara sugar and sherry, followed by a delicate spiciness of oak, cinnamon and tobacco leaves.
    • Taste
      Fruity and sweet with a load of stewed fruits and sherry, followed by brown sugar and dark chocolate. Very warming mix of spices - oak in particular, tobacco leaves and cinnamon. Slightly bitter notes of walnuts and espresso linger towards the finish. Extremely mouthfilling.
    • Finish
      The finish is long lasting, sweet and creamy with sticky fruit jam, coffee aroma and a delicate nuttiness.

      With water: Becomes spicier when a splash of water is added. Still sweet and fruity with more tobacco notes in the back. Sweet and fruity on the palate with an increased spiciness (oak, black pepper and nutmeg) and far more nutty flavours. The finish is still long, sweet and creamy with dry notes of oak, walnut and tobacco on the tail.

  5. Don Cassi scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Wow, it's already burning your nose! Deep, dark, nutty, some polish and a lot of dark fruit. But alcohol is present above everything.

    Very hot in the mouth, as expected, the alcohol burns the voluminous sherry notes into the tongue.

    The finish is a dream: very sherry-tinged with chocolate and coffee notes, just the right amount of oak, reminds me a bit of the Allerdice
    Length: 7/10

    Brute sherry monster that leaves no room for the distillery character. It doesn't have to be with such great sherry flavors, but the alcohol could be better integrated.

    Note 1-

    The nose is really great, unfortunately the taste can't keep up the level. Too strong, too aggressive, too poorly integrated alcohol.
    • Nose
      88 88
      It smells very creamy and the nose doesn't start as blatantly as the almost 63% would have suggested. Vanilla, blueberries, cherries (smells like a forest fruit tea). Slightly mineral, earth, moss, iron and leather. I think that's great.

      With water it becomes less dense, but it becomes even more fruity.
    • Taste
      80 80
      But now, it really numbs your mouth. That's too hard for me, with a teaspoon of water: Hmm, difficult, the whisky is still pretty nasty, but I don't want to dilute it any more. Cherries, leather, tobacco, metal. But the alcohol is really not well integrated.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium length, with honey and forest fruit.
