Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2008 SV

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.18 points

  1. ThorstenH scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A difficult allachia. Not mainstream. The alcohol pushes mightily. More pleasing with water, 1 point more (as rated). Dried fruits, earthy.

  2. DGV scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    Sherry monster, sweet tooth will definitely come in. For me, too much with sherry, the base is hammered, for which the score is lowered by a couple of points.
    • Nose
      Bright sherry, sugary. Figs, Prague cake, licorice syrup, light basement dampness.
    • Taste
      Sweet, tart. Fondant candy, figs, overripe grapes, a little oak.
    • Finish
      Long, generally duplicating aroma and taste.
