Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2008

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.06 points

  1. Noface83 scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    Great dram. Fantastic nose and very good impact in the mouth. The finish is intense and good falls in comparison to the nose a bit off. Goes well in spite of 56% but some water does not hurt. Find the malt super!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Nose: fresh and fruity, slightly fermented fruit, apricot and apples, honey sweetness, glucose, nut nougat and some chocolate, slightly spicy oak (pepper and cinnamon), slightly tingling alcohol
    • Taste
      88 88
      Creamy (and slightly tingling), damn sweet, lots of grape must and honey, apricot jam and wild spicy Moscatel notes, some pepper
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long finish with lots of sweetness, a little nut and chocolate, a lot of spicy oak (but not too bitter), very balanced between sweetness and wood. Not quite as complex as the nose but very tasty.
