  1. notesofmalt scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Glenallachie 15 years, 46% alc. Original bottling (approx. 2020). Expansion: Bourbon casks, post-maturation in sherry casks (Oloroso and PX)

    Nose: A surprisingly subtle but pleasantly fruity nose, as well as a slight spiciness. The whisky begins with plum jam and various nuts. There are also flambéed bananas and blackberries, some white chocolate. The plum jam is seasoned with a little cinnamon, then I find cedar wood and colorful pepper.

    Palate: Creamy and fruity, dries quickly. Dried fruits in chocolate, cinnamon and tobacco. Again some nuts, the spices are now increasing significantly. The cinnamon gains in spiciness, plus some pepper and some sparkling oak.

    Finish: Long and dry, the oak clearly sets the tone here. Coffee chocolate, cloves and cinnamon, pepper. Also suddenly a little lavender.

    Conclusion: This Glenallachie starts out a bit reserved and playful on the nose, but picks up speed on the palate. For me a good whisky for cold winter evenings. 84/100 points (2021)
