    This is like pineapple juice on steroids! I really like how the moscatel finish added a huge fruity layer that just keeps on going. Not overly complex but very very tasty. Not too sweet, some spices, very fruity, 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.

    Persönlich habe ich mehr von dem Moscatel erwartet. Er ist nicht schlecht, aber noch mal kaufen würde ich ihn nicht.
    • Nose
      80 80
      beißender Alkohol steigt einem sofort in die Nase der auch einiges an Aroma überdeckt, was man noch wahr nimmt sind nicht näher beschreibbare Früchte.

      Hier auch wieder direkt der scharfe Geschmack des Alkohol im Vordergrund. Nach ein wenig "kauen" entfalten sich dahinter Aromen von nicht näher beschreibbaren dunklen Früchten, dunkel Beeren (?), Spuren von Pfirsich und feine Noten von Zimt gesellen sich dazu, Spuren von Eiche sind wahrnehmbar
    • Finish
      81 81
      Pfeffrige Schärfe baut sich langsam ab und die Eiche wird etwas stärker die aber relativ schnell in bittere Schokolade und einen Hauch Kaffee übergeht

  4. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A deliciously fruity and honey-sweet single malt from the latest Wood Finish series by GlenAllachie. After final maturation in Moscatel casks, the distillery character is enhanced by the characteristic notes of the Muscat grape, thus providing a balanced, fruity, fresh summer dram with optimum drinking strenth.

    I thank Kirsch Import e.K. for the complimentary sample.

    • Nose
      Fruity aromas immediately rise to the nose, such as grape, peach, apricot and pineapple. Really intoxicating. Honey and white chocolate notes are added, accompanied by floral tones.
    • Taste
      Sweet, fruity and creamy on the palate with peaches and oranges, a touch of grapefruit, warming spices and cinnamon. Dark chocolate and mocha nicely linger towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is long lasting with creamy honey. Becomes increasingly chocolaty with distinct mocha notes.

      With water: Much more fruity on the nose after adding some water. Peach, apricot, passion fruit and more citric aromas. Sweet and creamy on the palate with a little less fruit. Slightly warming with cinnamon and creamy chocolate. The finish is medium long with lots of dark chocolate, cocoa and a touch of espresso.
