Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 1972 DL

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.46 points

  1. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A wonderfully aged sherry whisky. 
    • Nose
      Rich red fruits, vanilla, citrus, dry oak, clove, and dried orange peel. 
    • Taste
      Much the same. Drying and sweet, with rich red fruit, orange oil, and cinnamon. 
    • Finish
      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
    = 90.
    • Nose
      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) 
    • Taste
      feels a bit thin first of, then very sweet, honey, caramel/burnt, short beeswax, leather & oxo (90)
    • Finish
      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)
