Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2004
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.13 points
- Not as impressing as it looks/smells. I’m quite new in this whisky so I can’t say if it happened to be an average cask or an average whisky in general.
- Quite complex and changeable in taste and finish. He knows how to convince.
But unfortunately there is not enough from the nose.
Clearly noticeable alcoholic stinging.
Leather, dark wood, some cinnamon. Spices. All in all, however, reserved to barely perceptible and noticeably overlaid by the alcohol.
Also goes a bit towards Maggi. But there is really hardly anything to be felt in the nose.
Even with water, the alcohol note massively predominates and there are hardly any smells to work out. The smell of maggae becomes clearer with water, but this does not necessarily make it better.
Significantly more intense than the nose.
Nice and sweet. Dark maple syrup alternates with acacia honey. Great. Cinnamon, cloves, dark chocolate. Some lemon. You can also feel the alcohol. But not as strong as expected. Light berry notes with walnuts.
The sweetness increases with water and there is a little more towards the berries.
Very dry, almost bitter. Easily softened by the honey and lemon sweetness. Now the berries come out more clearly.
Also has something slightly bitter, which makes you think of cough syrup.
The bitterness goes back with water, away from cough syrup and more towards lemon and red berries.
