  1. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A delicious GlenAllachie with an oak note that takes getting used to, but is not uninteresting.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Licorice, vanilla, Demerara sugar, creme brulee, noticeable alcohol, citrus fruits, orange peel, sweet limes
    • Taste
      84 84
      Strong start, tangy, citrus-heavy, warming oak spice, oak-heavy dryness
    • Finish
      85 85
      Woody notes in the finish, marzipan, dry and spicy finish, very creamy and persistent woody

  2. Abadon05 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The barrel influence can be clearly felt.
    Interesting combination of barrel (oak), spice and sweetness.
    He does not need water conditionally.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Fierce oak flag that dominates.
      In the background, however, you can already guess a nice fruitiness.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Fruity, but also the spice can be heard.
      And the oak barrel swings along again and again.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Nice, sweet and spicy finish.

  3. tangtang scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    nice citrus-heavy aromas, very strong and spicy. I like it very well.
    • Nose
      sweet and spicy, citrus fruits, sweet wood, orange, nuts, some vanilla and caramel, the alcohol is a bit present
    • Taste
      lots of citrus fruits, sweet, spicy, limes, oranges, some herbs and slightly nutty. Very strong from the alcohol
    • Finish
      Strongly sweet and fruity finish, slightly nutty and spicy, becoming somewhat dry
