    [December, 2011]  I found this dram in an advents calendar sampled by MaRa.

    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  Unfortunately I took no detailed notes.

    GLENALLACHIE 1971-2011 40yo TR THE LIFE # 740 48.1% one of 162 bottles · Aroma: lemon, white wine grape feeling, green apple, fresh and minty feeling, entering the nose coming in. Gorgeous aroma, very fruity, deeply moist and tarty feeling of peat. · Taste: Sweetness like syrup, green apple, white grapes, lemon, grapefruit etc. Fruit feeling remains aroma. Nuance of fresh green leaves. Oil and Pete insist in the second half unexpectedly. The sense of ripening is wonderful, the barrels are not strong and there is no disgust. Body is medium. · Reverberation: Grapefruit and Pete firmly insist. A little spicy, long and comfortable lingering finish. The last remaining is a feeling of peat different from Gill Greeley and Islay like Dulwini 1966 I drank before. · Water addition: just keeping the balance thinner as it is. · Overall rating: Very fruity and peaceful Arashi. Fruity including green apples and white grapes similar to the same life 's capnic are felt firmly, but there is a feeling of peat with no nuance of the sea as lined, and a good impression. interesting. http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=19897
