    Ahh fully sherry matured Glenallachie, wonderful. Value (£85) : 7/10
    • Nose
      My mind is instantly drawn to the sherried influence here. Full of dried figs, morello cherries, stewed plums and dark bitter chocolate. With that there is a distinct note of hazelnuts. Some candied orange peels with Demerara sugar and heather honey bringing sweetness but this is a dark, rich experience. I get that savoury, nutty characteristic of Oloroso. Plenty of spice as well with fresh ginger and freshly cracked black pepper. Even some cinnamon and clove.
    • Taste
      Big impact on the palate. The texture is oily and mouth coating, perfectly carrying those huge sherried flavours with it. Less sweet now on the palate, just a slight heather honey note. It's gone more in the direction of bitter dark chocolate and espresso. Sone drying tannins bring unlit cigars and old leather. Again more orange peels and candied ginger. The spice is still ever present, almost chilli-like now.
    • Finish
      Medium to long in length, it carries those tannins from the palate well. Quite drying and bittersweet. Imagine molasses without the sugar. Again leather and dark chocolate. Those initial spices of cinnamon and clove return once again now with some nutmeg.
