  1. RobbievdB scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    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!

    • Nose
      Some nectarine, tinned pineapple and coconut water with a whiff of honey, but also sweet pastries and warming spices. Just a whisper of grapefruit.
    • Taste
      Barely noticeable on the nose, the grapefruit shines on the palate. There's lemon zest, honey and an assortment of spices as well.
    • Finish
      Soft spices and bright fruits with a touch of brown sugar.

  6. Maltimizer scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      85 85
      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
    • Taste
      85 85
      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
    • Finish
      82 82
      Bittersweet! Medium length, quite dry at the end

    The Moscatel influence is mostly subtle, but the wood screams for attention. A non-round oddity.
