    with water: with water, the orange note comes through stronger, but still has a lot of punch in the nose, in the mouth it becomes nice and soft, but the tannins (virgin oak) are still strong

    Conclusion: delicious, very delicious, and a super nice drinking whisky for 50.00 EUR. But why always this oak punch with cinnamon spices through the virgin oak casks? Without this influence I would like it even better.
    • Nose
      clear sherry character, but the base is honey, orange and vanilla, overlaid with dark chocolate, raisins, dark cherries, coffee, cinnamon, the alcohol is good, but not perfectly integrated, which gives it a ginger sharpness
    • Taste
      nice mouthfeel, sweet sherry, vanilla, cookie dough, chocolate, almonds
    • Finish
      long and intense, sherry, chocolate, raisins, honey, orange peel, ginger, on the back quite dry oak tannins

  3. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The natural colour of this cask strength bottling promises a sherry cask influenced, but not overpowered whisky. Wonderful dark fruit notes combine with sherry sweetness and wintery spices to create a harmony on the nose and palate. This pleasure experience can be brought to perfection by a cracking open fire. A delicious malt!

    I thank The GlenAllachie Distillery for the complimentary sample!

    • Nose
      Starts with sherry aromas, dried fruit and raisins. This is accompanied by notes of cake dough, honey, blood oranges, spicy oak and cinnamon. In the background dark chocolate and cocoa.
    • Taste
      Rich, full-bodied and powerful on the palate with a wonderful sweetness of sherry, molasses, juicy oranges, figs and dates. Accompanied by nicley warming spices of oak, cinnamon and nutmeg. Dark chocolate lingers towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is long lasting and warming with honey and slightly dry notes of cocoa, orange oil and oak. Additional slightly bitter tones of orange peel and walnuts.

      With water: After the addition of water, the nose is wonderfully sweet and fruity with oranges and dates, accompanied by sherry and vanilla, milk chocolate, spicy oak, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sweet and creamy also on the palate with dark caramel, walnut and milk chocolate. Spicy notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and oak, as well as slightly dry tones of cocoa towards the finish. The finish is a little shorter and slightly warming with honey, some spices and dry cocoa.

    For me the disappointment of the year. I don't get warm with it and had to fight my way through the 2.5cl in the glass

      Quite subdued. Some milk chocolate, some mint, has something of After Eight (and I hate After Eight). The alcohol content is noticeable undiluted; it calms down with a little water. But somehow more does not come. Don't pick me up

      Hmm, go on like this. Quite sweet, more like caramel, and milk chocolate again. Nice mouthfeel. The alcohol is well integrated with a little water.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium long, a little pepper and ginger, not bad at all.
