Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2006

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.62 points

  1. Drk Neknul scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Not for the faint of heart. Extremely powerful without water, with water a strong, spicy, smoldering pleasure.

    EYE / NOSE
    Mahogany. Malt beer, bitter-sweet plum jam, furniture polish, strong freshness, sherry, with toasted bread in the background.

    PALATE
    Very strong, a full, voluminous malt even with a little water. Spices, gravy, tart, sweet malt notes, some wood and red fruits soaked in alcohol. Dark cocoa notes and chocolate.

    FINISH / CONCLUSION
    The sherry remains present, as does the dark chocolate. At first rather dry, later, however, towards the end, fruity sweetness. Minimal, pleasant bitterness, as best known from bitter orange jam. Everything fits together neatly. The malt has a clear direction, but if you are looking for real complexity, this is hardly the right place. More like a brute, heavy saber, because filigree foil. No missing notes, especially no sulfur. Typical Billy Walker. GlenDronach Cask # 1441 immediately comes to mind.
