5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.27 points

  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.

    I usually find port and whisky a good combination. In this case I think the port finish is less successful. Little port influences, quite watery whisky (48% at all).

    Taste again soon, for now somewhat disappointing.

    A luscious, fruity single malt with delicate chocolate notes. The port wine casks gave this whisky, in addition to its great ruby red colour, nice red fruit aromas, accompanied by sweet spices and lots of dark chocolate. These chocolate notes increase considerably more after adding water. A liquid dessert after a good meal.

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

    • Nose
      The nose starts off with ripe red fruits, creamy fruit compote with plums, followed by vanilla, a sweet spice and dark chocolate in the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet and powerful on the palate with a mix of red fruits: cherries, plums and berries. Warming spicy notes with delicate dark chocolate towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is long lasting and creamy with sticky red fruit jam. It dries out towards the end with fine cocoa.

      With water: Fresher and tingly on the nose after adding a few drops of water. The wonderful red fruit aromas are accompanied by considerably more dark chocolate. Beery, creamy and fruity on the palate with a restrained spiciness. Here too, there are clearly more chocolaty notes. The finish is slightly shorter with lots of dark chocolate and dry notes of espresso.

    I don't get warm with the new Glenallachie series. I think the 15 standard is very good. The rest of them disappoint me across the board. Rye, Port, Madeira, Marsala and PX do not meet expectations. Rather choose the 15 Glenallachie or Glendronach for the price. Here the price is right and so is the whisky. Full and ripe in contrast to the finish series. These are too thin and watery for me, despite 48%
    • Nose
      Light fruits like apricot or something, some spice like cinnamon, milk chocolate
    • Taste
      Some plums, apricots, wood and watery despite 48%
    • Finish
      short and thin, some men's chocolate

    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 :)
