    I love cask strength whisky and like to drink cask strength. This Allt-A-Bhainne definitely needs water to develop its strengths.

    I have a soft spot for this distillery, g&m and bourbon casks. So this should be good. Got it for 99€ and that is a great deal imo.

      The high abv shows. But in a good way. This is really fat with fermented apples, Pears and peaches. There is also some burnt dough, and a very present but well integrated oak spice. Some ginger and lemon is also present. I also get some burnt sugar and maple syrup. Funnily this has some eucalyptus in the nose as well and some fresh mint.

      Very long and quite dry. Again I get some salt, tons of fermented apples. Some orange Marmelade. And the eucalyptus is back as well. This is an entire fermented orchard if you ask me. And everything is perfectly accommodated by that lovely wood influence.
