    A great whisky when it’s cold outside and your not into peat. Has long been a favorite and probably will always be high on my list. Very accessible too, has enough to it, but won’t bite your head off. Great dram!
    • Nose
      Full on rich raisins, with some warm custard and molten milk chocolate placed on an antique walnut cabinet, basically a nose full of Christmas.
    • Taste
      Sweet tobacco, as if drenched in alcoholic raisins, topped with some warming spices and, again, walnuts. Lovely mouth feel, nice and oily.
    • Finish
      Round oaky and sweet tobacco with spices on the tongue, some bitter notes but not too much, fading to a gentle sweetness as if you had a lovely sweet dessert some ten minutes ago.

    Unfortunately, the taste is far too slack, but it has an interesting aroma and a nice finish
    • Nose
      82 82
      a lot of sweetness, almost artificially aromatic / perfumed, herbs and spices, intense
    • Taste
      60 60
      almost watery, light, rather weak and inconspicuous, then the salivation begins, sweet, tingling a bit, peach
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium length, suddenly massive wood pushes and a lot of sweetness, getting dry

    Glenallachie 15 years, 46% alc. Original bottling (approx. 2020). Maturation: Bourbon barrels, maturing in sherry barrels (Oloroso and PX)

    Nose: A surprisingly subtle but pleasantly fruity nose, also directly a light spice. The whisky starts with plum jam and various nuts. There is also flambéed banana and blackberries, a little white chocolate. The plum jam is seasoned with a little cinnamon, then I find cedar wood and colored pepper.

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

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

    Conclusion: This Glenallachie starts out a little restrained and playful in the nose, but is clearly picking up speed on the palate. For me a good whisky for cold winter evenings. 84/100 points (2021)
