  1. MaroFF scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The first contact with this whisky is a bit disappointing. Nothing really happens in the aroma. The faint notes of cherry and the rot of a musty cellar are more disgusting than encouraging.
    What is knocked down in the nose, in the mouth and finish is completely compensated. Strong notes of chocolate, with cherries, marzipan and the finish that intrigues and encourages further escapade into the drink. Cool.

      cherries, chocolate, old cellar, sherry, oak, well-baked yeast dough
    • Taste
      88 88
      sweet ; chocolate, marzipan, cherries in chocolate, sugar syrup, orange peel
    • Finish
      88 88
      medium-long, quite sweet, honey-like, cherry ending, warming with a hint of dark chocolate and coffee grounds

  2. DGV scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    If you do not look at the age, then everything seems fine - powerful, colorful, tasty. But from the 15th I want a little more.
    • Nose
      Dark chocolate, marshmallows, nuts, slightly rotten grapes, cappuccino.
    • Taste
      Sweet, powerful. Prunes, cherries, chocolate, a little citrus.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet.

  3. vlad78 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very picky, in a hurry - he would still be in a barrel. Alcohol dominates, because of this, quite interesting tones of plums and raisins, viscosity and dust, leather and grape branches, although tangible, remain in the shade.

    Chocolate, spice, some orange and more sweet than bitter. Modern Oloroso Cask bottling, ok, but unspectacular.

  6. Artus scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nice single cask! With water the whisky gets even better. Of course you taste the typical Glenallachie character with a tiny bit of a “chili catch“ but I like that. The oloroso cask has done a nice job here.

  7. Captain Teague scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Tried at a friend's glad I didn't buy it ...Well not even Billy Walker can do Magic with spirit that just lacks in alcohol integration - of course a wet wine or px Barrel can do a lot but this is far away from Benriach not to speak about Glendronach. // Maybe it will get better when he bottles his 'own / new' Glenallachie. -- Now it's even harder for me to understand why this distillery is soo super hyped these days.

  8. Mapl scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Typical Oloroso Glenallachie SC like the last few years. Great barrels but the alcohol is unfortunately not well integrated here. Young and hot on the tongue.
