Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 1972 DL
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.47 points
- A wonderfully aged sherry whisky.
Rich red fruits, vanilla, citrus, dry oak, clove, and dried orange peel.
Much the same. Drying and sweet, with rich red fruit, orange oil, and cinnamon.
Long, sweet, and drying. Ephemeral sweetness sitting on top of dry spice.

- Single Dram Note/s.
Score for the above - 88.33
Score from another tasting line-up w/o notes where it did rather well in the lineup - 92
First of: cottoncandy, mothballs, (84)
A bit later: more wood noticable, heather, Maggi/Oxo, some old malt, honey and even a tad flower-y, (89)
feels a bit thin first of, then very sweet, honey, caramel/burnt, short beeswax, leather & oxo (90)
then wood, lots of spices, fading out with a slight bitterness and some nice malt & beeswax notes in the back. (91) Bitterness keeps upper hand all the time and gets a bit tiring after a few sips. (86)
