- The nose is not mine at all, quite ok on the palate, but the barrel aroma comes across very artificially - 10.06.2020
It is very alcoholic, almost goes in the direction of cleaner or solvent, lemon juice, cereals, malty-sweet, newsprint
Surprisingly mild, malty-sweet, cereals, oatmeal, a little ginger, very spicy, the bitterness strikes violently, bitter walnut, again sweet wine gum towards the end, which goes towards liquorice
- A successful mix of spice and sweetness. The rye finish provides dry spices that wonderfully complement the fruity distillery character of GlenAllachie. It is best enjoyed undiluted, as the fruity sweetness disappears when water is added and the spiciness gains the upper hand.
I thank Kirsch Import e.K. for the complimentary sample.
A fruity and spicy mix of apples, cinnamon and nutmeg on the nose, followed by honey and some butterscotch. A hint of orange zest in the background.
Full-bodied, rich and sweet on the palate with apples and honey, accompanied by cinnamon, nutmeg cloves and spicy oak aromas.
The finish is of medium length, spicy with nutmeg and cinnamon as well as apple compote and a touch of dry oak.
With water: More lively and prickling on the nose as soon as a few drops of water are added. Bright fruit with honey and floral notes. More tamed and less sweet on the palate with more spices - rye notes, cinnamon and cloves. The finish is still of medium length, but much more spicy and dry with oak, clove and nutmeg.
The nose is the surprise for me!
Mint, lemon, lemongrass, even slightly cheescake-like, eucalyptus. Very nice!
Spicy, sweet, vanilla. Also has the fresh tones of the nose in it.
The least for me. You can taste the spicy for a long time, but for me it ends a bit. Medium long.
- Tasted on 05-16-2020 in Zons.
- Interesting take on an American Oak matured Glenallachie. This finish will probably be a hit or mis. I’m not too sure about this Rye finish. It’s quite strong on spices like cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and black pepper. Some honeyed orange peel makes up for the sweetness but overall it’s spice dominated. As expected, but not particularly to my liking. I liked the nose the best.
A touch of lemon yoghurt, but also very buttery, some rum raisins and a fair amount of honey. Finally a whiff of orange and some wood shavings.
Hello spices! Is this all the result from the rye wood? Plenty of pepper, some ginger and a bit of cardamom, but then it becomes sweeter and more in line with the nose. A touch of orange peel too.
A spicy sweetness. Pepper and honey. Medium in length.
