  5. domani scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The flavors evaporate very quickly, the overall impression is casual, monotonous and more on the dry side - 10.06.2020
    • Nose
      83 83
      Light fruits, gooseberry, star fruit, wet spruce wood, slightly waxy, paraffin oil, sunflower seeds
    • Taste
      82 82
      Cooling, very aromatic, hardly any sweetness, but astringent and oiliness in the interplay, very creamy and buttery, roasted aromas, some barrel flavor
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium length

  6. Whiskybayer scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    After the 15th this is the best of the new series from Glenallachie. Nothing that is very good, but you can buy it and drink it in summer. After being very disappointed with the Rye, Marsala, PX and Port, this is a bright spot for the distillery.
    • Nose
      Honey, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg
    • Taste
      Round on the tongue. Honey sweet and oranges, raisins. Cinnamon and cedar
    • Finish
      Medium length with cedar, oranges, honey and milk chocolate

  7. LaddieNerd scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Full-bodied sweetness, dark fruit compote with subtle wood and well integrated alcohol.
