  1. RobbievdB scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This is like tropical juice on steroids! I really like how the moscatel finish added a huge fruity (peach, apricot and pineapple) 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.

    Very great smell, the grapes are totally traceable in the nose, and definitely elegant.

    This 11y old Glenallachie is part of a late Saturday afternoon tasting (with myself) with some various Glenllachie expressions.

    This is for sure not the best. Whisky and wine finishes; to me often a hit or a miss. This is the letter. Sweet Moscatel flavors in combination with spicy flavors. The nose is ok, but the taste is simply not my thing.

    But their are some more interesting Glenallachie drams in the lineup. Next, I would say.
