Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2008

  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      A rather complex nose with lots to offer. I left this dram to breath for a while and the nose is more px orientated now, but still there is a clear corny and virgin oak kind of layer. It offers loads of sweetness that’s for sure. Fresh fruits, vanilla, honey, fudge, cream butter, raisins, dried oregano,
    • Taste
      Creamy, buttery, sweet and full of spices. But also various first fill experiences here. From honey to chestnuts and from sweet apples and corn to plumbs and raisins. It tends to be slightly restless on the mid palate, not deciding what it wants to be. But most of the time that annoys me, here it gives an interesting palate.
    • Finish
      Long. Sweet, a tad bitter and a wee dry. Cherry candy, winegums, honey and licorice.

    This is truly great Glenallachie! Enjoyed this dram with a friend. We both said this has to be a finish! The amount of virgin oak and bourbon cask influences are so clear this has to be. It just can’t be a full fresh PX maturation. The amount of fresh American oak and the amount of corn like flavors give this dram an unique perspective. With time more and more sherry influences take the stage and things get more balanced. My friend described it as a 12yo OB on steroids. Something I can subscribe. I’m not always convinced by the single casks of Glenallachie but this is convincing stuff to me.
