  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Started promising, but the wood was a little too dominant on the palate to warrant a higher score.
    • Nose
      Soft candy-esque strawberries, cherries and raspberry. A hint of rose petals, as well as honey and caramel-glazed, baked apples. Some After Eights after a little while. Pretty enticing.
    • Taste
      Treacle, dried red fruits and a hint of cocoa powder. Very sweet. Pretty intense spicy notes too. Mostly wood spices. Slightly astringent too.
    • Finish
      Drying, spicy. The sweetness returns after a while.

  2. Schnappsdrossel did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Smells sweet and fruity. Plus cherry cough sweet. Tastes of gummy bears plus tobacco. The fruit sticks in the finish. Delicious. He is better than the Tomatin Port, for example. He does not hit an Ardmore for a long time. And almost 60 € is very ambitious.

    A promising whisky, but the port wood notes were a little bit to overpowering in this whisky.

    Nose: honey, sweet spices, hints of rosé wine and black choclate.

    Taste: honey, dark choclate, red wine, anijs, and a light wood taste.

    Finish: a medium lasting finish mostly spicey and dry.

  4. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A very good for its age whisky, the finish in Port Fass has done well. Tasty, he knows to inspire with beautiful fruit notes. The distillery should be kept in mind.

      The first crawl brings you the scent of fresh raspberries, followed by teakwood and a malty sweetness. Heather honey, a bit of hay and the aroma of rosehip tea make the whisky's nose very pleasant.
    • Taste

      On the palate, first a fruity sweetness, which then slowly turns into a peppery pungency and causes a tingling sensation. Again the raspberry and even some cherry, followed by whole milk chocolate. Full and oily. Mint is on the palate and creates a nice freshness.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Very round and fruity, but with a distinct sharpness in the finish, which in turn is captured by a beautiful honey sweetness. Medium-length taste experience.

      Without any detours, you will experience a sweet and fruity start, with aromas of strawberries and cherries rising in your nostrils. Intense and elegant. Some marzipan and a little vanilla will show up after some time. You almost have to hold back from trying it right away. It's really a lot of fun. Again and again, a fresh alcohol comes into play, but makes the whole thing even more interesting.
    • Taste
      86 86
      At the start you get again presented an intense fruity sweetness, which is really hard to beat in terms of intensity. But then follows directly an intense wood flavor. The pushes right forward on the tongue and occupies the entire palate. True astringent, the whisky takes everything under control, but then lets it down again and releases little by little the flavors of strawberries and sweetness.
      The alcohol is overall well integrated and does not bother at any time, he acts in the whisky with a recurring freshness, some menthol simple.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Due to the intensive seasoning you really got something longer from this Glenallachie. Pickled strawberries stay with wood back on the palate. They still taste really long after.

      Juicy strawberries, directly behind a lot of honey-sweet vanilla, some cherries, present alcohol, some warehouse muff, definitely no old but a young and fresh Portweinnote
    • Taste
      88 88
      Here, too, a fruity start, then pushes the alcohol with beautiful balanced seasoning, the sweet strawberries are back, extremely thick and creamy, the slight drought on the tongue fighting against sweetness and creaminess
    • Finish
      82 82
      Honey and Bourbon sweetness, vanilla, lots of wood, strong contrast to the nose and mouth, but not unbelievable, the fruits can only be guessed
