      A very tasty fruity nose. Nothing intrusive, round and pleasant. Some marzipan.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Round, the alcohol content is good. Not too much depth.
    • Finish
      86 86
      A very slight bitterness (chocolate?), But not unpleasant, it fits.

    Not gonna lie. If it were given to me on a blind tasting I would guess it was a 16+ years old dram. The color of my bottle is very dark for a 12 years old and the taste is very good also.

    N: Fruits fruits & fruits, sherry notes, dark fruits, nutmeg, dark chocolate

    P: WOW!! Dark fruits, fresh fruits, nutmeg, toffee, chocolate, marzipan, spicy

    F: Long and very tasty

    Great drink for the price. I rate it 87/100 - Buy it, try it, stock it.

  4. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Nose :
    A mess of fruit, peach, tangerine, mango, strawberry, on gummy candies too, on a fruit compote
    A little caramel, dark chocolate and vanilla
    Mouth :
    On the same scents with candied fruit, industrial strawberries, woody on the way back, sweet spices which lift the mouth a little.
    More woody and caramelized, undifferentiated candied fruits, a little bitterness on the sweet almond.

    Very good PLV.
    • Nose
      Dark chocolate, strawberries, wood, in the background some almond and marzipan.
    • Taste
      Dark berries, wood, dark chocolate, some cherry, spicy notes with a hint of chilli.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Here, too, the chocolate remains with wood and spice.

    Another fabulous dram from Glenallachie. This batch is far better than the last one I had in 2019, deeper and fuller
