  4. magic_slim scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very good Glenallachie, which tastes much younger than 38 years old. Must have been a very inactive cask.
    • Nose
      Mellow and sweet with aromas of grass and hay, vanilla, lychees and white wine. Also candyfloss and strawberry flavored MAOAM chewing candy. Tasty.
    • Taste
      Smooth, clean and fruity with notes of white wine, canned pears and lemonade. Also white pepper is coming up. Pleasant without any off notes but a little too light for me.
    • Finish
      Medium long and warming finish with a dry and clean white wine mouth feeling lingering on.
