Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2011 SMWS 107.16

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.48 points

  1. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Probably originally in an Oloroso butt, not a Bourbon Hogshead. You are not going to get 524 bottles worth from a hoggie unless they poured two hogsheads into the final cask.

    Notes von der SMWS Website: "An impressive nose neat - even more so when taking the age into consideration. Complex, sweet and spicy, nutmeg, fruitcake with rum soaked raisins, strawberry jam filled donuts, caramel and a hint of tree bark. Deep, dark and broody on the palate like brown sugar meringues with a hazelnut butterscotch sauce. With a drop of water plenty of charred/burnt oak reminiscent of a Walpurgis Night bonfire and we skipped around the fire and sung: “the queen will never win the game, for Rumpelstiltskin is my name”! After five years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this whisky was transferred into a 2nd fill toasted oak butt."
