Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 11-year-old

- This is like tropical juice on steroids. I really like how the Moscatel barrel added a huge fruity layer with fresh peach, dried apricot and fresh pineapple that just keeps on going. No, this is not overly complex but very very tasty and steady from nose to taste to finish. Solid GlenAllachie!
Some nectarine, tinned pineapple and coconut water with a whiff of honey, but also sweet pastries and warming spices. Just a whisper of grapefruit.
Barely noticeable on the nose, the grapefruit shines on the palate. There's lemon zest, honey and an assortment of spices as well.
Soft spices and bright fruits with a touch of brown sugar.
Yellow fruits such as apricots, yellow apples and pears, a slightly sour note in the background, vanilla and bread spices, malt and a little menthol
Soft and mild at the beginning, fruity (mango & apricot), then increasingly hot with black pepper and stronger oak spice, coconut and at the end grapefruit
Bittersweet! Medium length, quite dry at the end
- The Moscatel influence is mostly subtle, but the wood screams for attention. A non-round oddity.
