  1. Glenjasper scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very nice dark color for a 12-year-old. Hard to believe that nothing was dyed here. The photo shown here makes the whisky appear much brighter than it actually is. The Glenallachie is quite difficult. There is not much to drink from it.

    It is more likely to have a rum than a whisky in a glass. Not a typical whisky, as you are used to it.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Pleasant sweet smell of honey, raisins and sherry cherries dominate. It comes through a little gingerbread and Christmas cookies. Slight salty note. Alcohol well integrated.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Raisins and cherries dominate here as well. Gingerbread and speculoos fill the mouth. Unfortunately, the alcohol comes out a bit. But is for a 12-year-olds with 46% still completely ok.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Surprisingly long finish. Probably because of the raisins. Sweet ripe tropical fruits in the aftermath. That's it.
