  7. lincolnimp scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    The 15 & the 12 are better than this.
    • Nose
      83 83
      This has quite a fragrant nose, on green apple and green apple skins, a little lime and lemon.
      A little spice appears and then a biscuit note
    • Taste
      82 82
      Tastes young to me and not good balance either.
      The spice is blunted a little by sour apple, maybe sour is a bit strong, unripe then.
      The spice note increases and a little sweetness also, decent but I am a little bored with this,
    • Finish
      82 82
      Finish is ok, just a little bland

  9. RJKrueger scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Impressive Glenallachie from the standard range; very complex and worth the money. Very balanced for sherry fans.
    • Nose
      Diverse, forest, damp wood, red berries, black cherry, allspice, cedar wood, dark chocolate.
    • Taste
      Full, oily, creamy, complex, very sherry-heavy, spicy, nice drinking strength.
    • Finish
      Very long, nice sustained finish - that's how I like it.

  11. vlad78 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Very sweet dessert whisky.
    • Nose
      85 85
      You can feel dried fruits and candied fruits, as well as red apples.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet and fruity on the palate. Quiet whisky.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Sweet aftertaste of medium duration.

  12. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Appearance: Deep golden amber.

    Nose: Butterscotch, vanilla, very buttery.

    Palate: Big oak, spicy, peppery, hot but sweet, soft, oaky.

    Finish: Slightly hot, oaky, buttery.

    With Water: Needs a bit to mellow.

    Overall: Lovely aged dram with bigger wood. Not as interesting and overtly delicious as the 15, though.

  13. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Good Speysider, but not a must buy.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Vanilla, perfume, citrus, light fruit, light alcohol note
    • Taste
      85 85
      A little spicy at the beginning, a few drops of water make it smoother. Sweet and sour on the start, ginger, fruity and some spice, like cardamom. Becoming drier.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Dry and medium length.
