Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 1989 CA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.33 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Great intense bourbon barrel whisky with lots of wood, but also vanilla and yellow fruits.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Strong and dense mole, on the brink, the fragrance is very tight at first, only after a while it is fully revealed, the taste also hardly copes with the fortress, there are claims to the balance - in places very roughly and unevenly, probably due to a young age, 6 in a barrel would calm him and smooth the irregularities.
