  1. RobbievdB scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Certainly not a highflyer but just a decent young whisky with an interesting maturation. The quarter cask left his mark on the the spirit and gives this Glenallachie aromas like vanilla, cinnamon (goldstrike’ish), cloves, ginger and malty sugars. Given the price point I would consider this an interesting zipper.

    Young representative with an interesting rye finish. Quite simply and without major highlights.
    • Nose
      77 77
      The alcohol cools the nose and shows the youth. You immediately have a nice sweetness and spicy grain notes. I search in vain for fruity flavors in this whisky. Overall very closed but sometimes something else.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Very sweet immediately on the tongue. The alcohol tingles, does not seem to be very well integrated. The mouthfeel is lively, there is a nice spiciness. Cinnamon and nutmeg come through.
    • Finish
      78 78
      Drying quickly and quickly. Very little wood.

  10. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    This one needs some time, at first the nose appears to be the best part, but with some patience everything gets stronger, and especially the finish improves significantly.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Very sweet aroma, vanilla and honey, a bit grainy as well. Also a bit spicy, pepper. Not a very intense nose.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Now some tingling mouthfeel appears, sweet, vanilla and honey, but somehow a bit thin.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Still a little pickering, sweet, honey, vanilla, a bit drying mouthfeel. At frist not too long, but after some time it gets longer, stronger and much better.
