  1. notesofmalt scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Glenallachie 2011 - 2020, Franconian Edition 2021, 9 years. 59.1% alc. Bottler: Original bottling for "Der Schnapsstodl". Expansion. Port pipe # 7858

    Nose: raspberries and blackberries with thick forest honey, followed by cherry cake with chocolate sprinkles. After this first impression, there are mild spices, especially nutmeg and very light cinnamon, paired with raisins and removed a little marzipan. Dry oak lingers in the background.

    Palate: Strong, sweet and very spicy. First the fruits of the nose again, but thicker and creamier, plum jam with cinnamon, blackberry puree. This is followed by ginger and nutmeg, the cinnamon aroma becomes even stronger and separates itself from the sweet fruits. This is followed by roasted almonds, chocolate and some milk coffee, a touch of mint.

    Finish: Long and dry, warming. Cocoa, espresso and spices, plus dried fruits.

    Conclusion: surprisingly ripe and complex for its 9 years, I would rather not dilute this whisky. A Glenallachie for cold winter evenings. 86/100 points (2021). I thank frolleinscotch for the sample.

  2. Jack McClane scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    In the nose a fragrance of red wine maturation - strawberries, soaked cherries and a winey fragrance - lovely!
    .
    In the palate a strong punch with an ABV of 59,1% - but no tannins here. Instead a gentle sweetness, porridge, vanilla, orange peel, ginger and some herbal notes aswell.
    .
    Diluted this malt really opens up going way more to the port side. Absolutely magnificent to experience this transformation. Notes of raisins, red berries, even Mokka and roasted almonds from a fair linger in a long finish.
