Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2014 LGA

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.19 points

  1. DamienB did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    On the nose, a large presence of nuts.
    A vinous aspect too, sweet wine. Candied fruit, citrus fruits, a country side.

    On the palate, a fatty texture, obviously nutty, and the presence of candied citrus fruits. We then go for a walk in a damp wood, a nice "dirty" side

    Finally, always this wood, but arrives different spices, aromatic herbs.
    Finally, always this presence of nuts with a very nice texture, very fat, yet an enveloping whisky on the palate, gourmet and fresh. Really, will it become the hallmark of this "birds" series? And this is not to displease me!

    Confusing profile, it's promising, but it took him a little time to fully express himself.
    • Nose
      Floral first, dry apricot and then rancio. It's confusing.
    • Taste
      Fruity and heady, quince.
      Alcohol burns.
      With a few weeks of ventilation, everything is no longer in place.
    • Finish
      Short, pear, salt

    Walnut dominates the nose, it is so powerful that it is difficult to grasp other aromas. On the palate it is always overwhelming, but carried by a concentrated and oily texture, it is powerful, with an always present woody note. The palate saves the nose a little but it's still very (too?) Nutty
