Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 1973 TWA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.12 points

  1. LENINOSLO scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The shoplink and price here is not real. The shop in Belgium only had 2 btls. of ths a long time ago. The price should be around pound 200 to day.

  2. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Funny how two whiskies (this one and the Glenallachie bottled by Malts of Scotland) can be so closely related with virtually the same flavour descriptors, yet this one lacks part of the magic of the MoS version. Bringing it down to more or less the same strength doesn't quite fix it. Don't get me wrong though - this is still very good stuff.
    • Nose
      Fresh and fruity, but I'm missing some of the more uncommon notes which I loved in the MoS version (like strawberry or muscat grapes). Here it's more focused on pears and apples. It also shows more grassy / leafy notes (could be just the higher alcohol). Soft waxiness. Water brings out some floral notes.
    • Taste
      Slightly hot with rather more oak. Again some leafy notes to accompany the otherwise sweet fruit cake, apple and almond flavours. Fairly dry in the end with a noticeable bitterness.
    • Finish
      Long and dry with vanilla, apples and malt.
