    Glenallachie evening .... 8er; 12s; and and this glorious dram.
    Billy Walker runs his handwriting, unmistakably.

    But can the 15er still keep his younger brothers under control?
    Honestly.... he's having a hard time.

      the smell of sherry is a bit restrained, citrus fruits directly when pouring, but after a few minutes in the glass the soft fruits have the upper hand. banana, pear.
      the citrus smell turns on.
      Here, too, there is a slight smell of caramel, but -- in my opinion -- not as much as in his younger brothers.

      Wow.... Wood, spices and wood.... the fruits have ALMOST disappeared, tart, strong flavors are what count here.
      I also have cinnamon here, as already mentioned by a previous writer.
      slightly dry wood

      yes, the "GGA slide" continues. From the classic fruits to the tart explosions in the mouth, the finish is almost unexpected. He flashes the bright, soft fruit once more before the cinnamon and damp wood say goodbye, accompanied by the spice.

    I thought it would be like a classic sherry bomb, but it is more complex and layered then that!

  11. Tomatin1980 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I expected more fruit and traditional sherry influence, but this goes a step further. A somewhat stiff, complex whisky, which has more to offer from the 15 years of maturation and the various barrels that have been used. Definitely a strong influence of chocolate, tobacco leaves and spiciness. The unpolished character provides some downsides, but certainly a fascinating whisky!
