8 users have left 8 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.28 points.

  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Yes, he is very dark. Yes, it tastes the way it looks.

    But fortunately it's not boring, because it's a little older, has experienced full maturation and has a very suitable alcohol strength.

    As a result, it alternates beautifully between the fruity-sweet and hearty-spicy aromas.
    • Nose
      Sweet bacon, leather, dried dates in syrup, shortbread. Sweet, heavy, savory, beguiling!
    • Taste
      Dark chocolate, dried dates and figs, cigar leaves, tobacco, old furniture. Everything you could hope for from such a dark "Sherry-Moster".
    • Finish
      Long, sweet and aromatic.

    Amazing bottle. It does taste way older than it should.

    Sherry bomb with fig, dates, in syrup

  8. OlivierSegers scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    This dram needs some time to completely reveal its flavours… but it will reward you with a lovely sherry matured Glenallachie… The nose has the ‘standard’ sherry flavours with lots of red fruit… a bit ‘boring’ and one-dimensional… taste and finish are really lovely with lots of chocolat and sherry-associated fruits… but the sherry does not overwhelm and I really like that… not your typical sherry-bomb… nice selection from North Star

    What a fantastic dram!

    The sherry and chocolate immediately came to mind when I tasted the glenallachie.
    For an age of 13 years this is just a very good whisky in my opinion and speaking of the color, a nice dark sherry color.
