  3. Allandale scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A surprisingly rich body.
    • Nose
      Fresh and floral, fragrant , gentle , Peat-tinged.
    • Taste
      Rich, sweet , clean, syrupy maltiness. 
    • Finish
      Very long. Treacle toffee. Gingery spiciness . Rooty dryness. Very warming. Late echo of phenolic peat.

    Serge
    Glen Garioch 18 yo 1978/1997 (59.4%, OB, cask vatting) Its colour is deep gold, and the first nosing is very powerful. Coffee, sherry, orange peel – gets a little spirity (pear drops). The mouth is quite pungent: spirity, with lots of coffee, ginger, crème brulée, and some very nice peat. Too hot, though, and it really needed quite a lot of water and a few minutes before it became really enjoyable. Then it developed a lot further, with a great finish. 85 points.

  6. helmutgw scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    I have to say: an exemplary sherry whisky from the good old days; when excellent sherry casks were available. Well balanced sherry, not overemphasised. The alcohol is quite present and a splash of water is needed, to smooth it out.
