  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Not the best bottling from A Dream Of Scotland. Youthful Glenallachie, flavors have to be looked for, sherry finish is only noticed minimally.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Vanilla, malt, light fruits like pear and apple, minimal sherry.

      It opens with a little water and releases the aromas better. In addition younger wood.
    • Taste
      82 82
      A little spiciness, vanilla pudding, the sherry can only be noticed on approaches. In addition herbal-floral.

      Less sharp and pleasing with water.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Pretty quickly gone, pepper, chocolate and seasoning. Alcohol note

    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.

    Youthful, fruity and dry aftertaste.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Smell: cheesecake, plums and chocolaty, the nose promises something different than the taste.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Flavor: youthful, light sherry note, custard
    • Finish
      82 82
      Finish: becoming dry, with a hint of pepper.
      Not a bad whisky, but you can tell that you are young.

  4. RedBandit74 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Light, summery, not too complex whisky with a slight alcoholic note
    • Nose
      Sweet, a little sherry, a little pear, a hint of caramel
    • Taste
      Sweet, little sherry, peppery, alcoholic spiciness
    • Finish
      a little sweet, getting drier, a little woody, medium length
