Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2007 UWC

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.17 points

  1. zaphod155 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A good start for a new independent bottler. A really pleasant bottling that arouses curiosity about further bottlings from the house of 'Uncharted Whisky'.
    • Nose
      Strong vanilla and toffee. A heavy sweetness that reminds me of my very sweet organic dates that I have as a snack at home. There is also a restrained seasoning and coffee beans. There are also lighter fruits in the background.
    • Taste
      Ripe fruits with a distinct sweetness. In addition, a nice, deep, mild flavor. Dark caramel. Warm, soft mouthfeel. There is also a pleasant sharpness. Also some chocolate and a hint of liquorice.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet finish, with nice spice and a warming feeling.

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

    This Glenallachie from the new independent bottler Uncharted Whisky Co. convinces with its beguiling sweetness of yellow fruits, honey and butterscotch. The complete maturation in a first-fill sherry butt did not overpower the distillery character, which I like very much. The drinking strength of 50% abv is optimally chosen because after the addition of water, the Glenallachie clearly loses its sweetness and beguiling aromas. Truly a charming dram!

    I thank deinwhisky.de for the complimentary sample!

    • Nose
      Sweet and fruity on the nose with apricots, toffee, blossom honey and butterscotch. Very aromatic with floral notes, a touch of vanilla and some oak spice in the background.
    • Taste
      Wonderfully sweet on the palate with toffee and yellow ripe fruits, mainly apricots. In addition, honey with vanilla and butterscotch, accompanied by a spicy oak note with cinnamon and some nutmeg.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and pleasantly warming with toffee, some butterscotch, a hint of walnut and a subtle oak spiciness.

      With water: After adding a few drops of water, clearly more floral notes on the nose, plus apricots and passion fruit, with sweet honey and less butterscotch notes. Clearly spicier on the palate with cinnamon, white pepper, oak and even some tobacco notes. Walnut and a touch of honey appear as well. Overall, clearly less sweet. The finish is still medium long and warming, with spicy notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and oak.
