Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 1995 TDu

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.31 points

  1. sjoerd972 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Sniff:
    Gentle on the bourbon cask with a good balance between cask, barley and spirit. Autumn leaves, puff pastry, moss. It’s quite light with some very crisp herbaceous notes.

    Sip:
    The palate is a bit hotter than I expected. Dry, with some freshly sawn oak. Black pepper, dried breadcrumbs, puff pastry. Some vanilla, moss and ferns, autumn leaves. I get dried apple peel and a whiff of bitterness later on.

    Swallow:
    The finish shows a bit more cask. Some vanilla, pastry cream, sawdust.

    Excellent single cask from Glenallachie with a mature flavour profile that's getting rarer these days.
    • Nose
      It is very crisp and lemon-y with dried barley husks and a whisper of burlap. Touches of apple compote, quinces and sweet peaches. Finally a whisper of grapefruit, this is getting more citrusy as we go along.
    • Taste
      A creamy mouthfeel and gentle arrival with a good amount of citrus and some stone fruits. Soft notes of white pepper and cloves too, with finally a surprising mineral touch.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices and lemon pith. Ending on notes of orchard fruits. Quite long.
