  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Tinned peaches with a good amount of cinnamon, but also some burlap, rose water and elderflower. Finally a touch of cocoa. Fresher than expected.
    • Taste
      Super creamy and rather well-balanced. Some soft spices are lifted by strawberries, raspberries, cherry syrup and a whisper of cocoa powder.
    • Finish
      A wave of berries with a touch of rose petals.

    Tasted this port finished GlenAllachie third in a row after the Rye and Moscatel finish. I also like this port finish. It’s very fruity with lots of raspberries, strawberries and cherries. Dangerously drinkable :)

    Bought a bunch of various Glenallachie samples to find out if under leadership of Billie Walker they can indeed reach the level of Glendronach. Some are good; some not so good.

      Love the nose. Mild, gentle and sweet Port influences. For sure loads of red fruit and vanilla. It starts of great!
    • Taste

      Bit oily and thick. Combination of spices (but not too much) and fruitiness; plums if I am not mistaken.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long and slightly bitter in the end.

      Nice to taste an occasional sample, but not good enough to buy a complete bottle.

    Typical Glenallach character with a lot of fruitiness and a certain spiciness.
    Young, rebellious character. Would I buy it again? No, it is not balanced enough for this and lacks depth.
