  1. hs305 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    [February, 2019] The new owners try to re-position Glenallachie as a premium malt (commanding premium prices that I am not willing to pay) so I rather check the reasonable priced IB's releases if this is justified or bound to fail...

    ...and this bottling is rather weird. The first association that comes to my mind is "liquid sourdough nut bread" - what actually is not bad at all but very strange to drink, to be honest. For sure it is unusual and it reminds me of the rather peculiar Glenturret distillery profile. A dram that is very interesting to explore but I doubt that a lot will really like it. Give it a try if you come across a sample but I recommended to have a tasting sip before buying a bottle...
    • Nose
      84 84
      The colour is jonquiripe corn and the nose offers a yeasty-bready profile on sourdough and biscuits with barley sugars, grassy, autumn floral and nutty (almonds) aromas. Later chalky notes pop up while the sourdough vanishes. I do neither find the coconut milk nor the grapefruits they state on the back label - and in the end I do not really like to nose this dram once I explored it, to be honest.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The taste is sweet on sugary-nutty-marzipan flavours with a minor bubble gum-ish fruity note and again sourdough impressions. Quite a strange profile but interesting. Not sure if I like this in bigger quantities (more than one dram) but I like to explore it, for sure. After some chewing (white) chocolatey notes and tons of hot spices (peppers, chili, ginger and the like) are released that really pep up this taste. The best word to describe this profile is: weird.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and coating with a minor drying-astringent moment of the tannins. The finish is long and adds even more spices - and by the way, these spices are not "gentle" like they state on the back label. Contrary, they are rather powerful and in combination with the sourdough bread this reminds me of the traditional Eastern European welcome offering of salt, pepper and bread. Water releases more bready aromas in the nose and turns the taste smoother (less weird) - but is this better? Not sure, I prefer the bizarre dram (neat)...

  2. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A better Glenallachie.
    • Nose
      Coconut milk, grapefruit, attractive sweetness.
    • Taste
      Mlik chocolate, artificial strawberry sweet.
    • Finish
      Long. Polished wood, pencil shavings and gentle spices.
