  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Fairly complex and decently balanced, this GlenAllachie isn't a classic example of Pedro Ximenez matured whisky.
    • Nose
      Sultanas, raspberry and polished oak. Hints of cherry bonbons (is that a Dutch thing?), triple sec and elderflower as well. A touch of vanilla and cinnamon too.
    • Taste
      Orange liqueur, wood shavings and a whiff of mint. Some blackberries and overripe banana, with a touch of chocolate and fermented grapes. Cloves too.
    • Finish
      Somewhat burnished. Drying. Medium in length.

    So the whisky has nothing to do with PX. After I was thrilled by the 15 Glenallachie this one is very boring. I love PX ripening of all Glendronach, Deanston etc. ... but this one is more like a bourbon barrel or a 3rd fill hogshead
    • Nose
      Raisins, chocolate, honey, but no spices like PX are common
    • Taste
      Like the smell, hardly any spices and watery in the mouth. Some malt and fruits like apricot.
    • Finish
      Short and quick forget

  5. bvrsky scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      86 86
      Red fruit, blackberry, raspberry, vanilla & cinnamon
    • Taste
      85 85
      Orange peels like a cointreau on the rocks in a beautiful French covid free summer. Tasty dark chocolate with raisins.
    • Finish
      85 85
      A dry medium finish that tickles your tongue on the side, cherry chocolates.

  8. dramspotter scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Blind mystery tasting
    • Nose
      85 85
      fruity, honeysuckle, pear, herbal, spearmint, marmite
    • Taste
      83 83
      fizzy, more alcohol-driven than you would expect at this strength
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium; not at all woody, liquorice and menthol

  9. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A bit one-dimensional. Some clear px influence, resulting in only some sweetness and raspberry. Not bad at all but I expected a little more from this.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Sherried nose, red fruits, raspberry. Not a very full nose initially, but after some time it gets fuller, sweet, Fruitella.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Strong, pickering, some red fruit, berries, raspberry, but not very heavy flavours. Later on it gets less powerful.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Still a little strong, a bit pickering, red fruits, raspberry, not very long.
