In advance I like the bottlings from the whisky house and the label is funny too.
But this is by far the worst malt I've ever had in Marco's glass. It is hardly worth evaluating and certainly not a pleasure.
Alcoholic nose too young, pointed, a hint of sherry.
Sharp in the mouth (yes, I like CS otherwise), metallic, a penetrating anise and caraway note, a little liquorice (help), little fruit, a potpourri of different missing notes.
Does that have to be the case with Glenallachie?
The finish consists only of alcohol and a hint of bitter oak with herbal notes.
What a disastrous whisky. 2020 is the absolute lowlight so far. Fortunately, it is only 10cl. Congratulations to all bottle owners and dear whisky house:
Please don't lower your bottlings to this level. That doesn't help anyone. Even if you can get rid of them.
