    Ralfy review 785: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9D4uW_o3Wek (85/100).

    "It's a real stand-out, singular single malt. And it's primarily to do with the sheer assertiveness of the rye without the rye actually swamping the original spirit."

    • Nose
      83 83
      Sweet malt, popcorn, hot corn on the cob, lemon zest, a bit mineral, quite pungent alcohol, light pastry notes, with grassy to strawy notes
    • Taste
      86 86
      Mineral and strong, a blend of lime and vanilla, creamy and slightly alcoholic, quite dry and warm
    • Finish
      84 84
      Again grassy and strawy, but very pleasant, fits together somehow, neat oak and warmth, sweet malt sticks for a long time

    While a bit of an odd duck, I find it a very interesting concoction, and my favourite of the Glenallachie Wood Finish Series.
    • Nose
      First impression is porridge with honey, accompanied by a touch of oak shavings, ripe banana, nutmeg and cinnamon. A tiny bit of fudge, and also a hint of sour beer.
    • Taste
      The mouthfeel is a tad thin, yet somewhat oily. Fairly spicy. Think cloves and ginger, with a touch of cinnamon and black pepper. Some more oak shavings, and also a whiff of green banana.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices. Broccoli. Finally a surprising touch of smoke.
