  2. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Very nutty and creamy on the nose, chocolatey and sweet. Nutella? With water a little more fruit, apricot jam. Very dry, salty and herbaceous in the mouth. Wasn't to be expected from the nose. Then he loses something.

  3. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Very unbalanced and inconsistent, far too sharp, one of the worst Glenallachie single casks

      83 83
      Nice nose, honey-sweet, citrus, linden blossom honey
    • Taste
      76 76
      Liquorice, strong hot pepper, mouth-filling, very different from the nose, grape notes
    • Finish
      76 76
      Long-lasting, but also strong sharpness that only slowly becomes less
