2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.00 points

  1. Allandale scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    First bottled as a 37 year old in 1977.

    Slightly darker than the earlier bottling.

    Considerably maltier and sweeter.

    Lime zest, cilantro and garden mint.

    Finish very dry, but no astringency.

    Producer`s Tasting Notes

    "NOSE:
    Heavy burnt peat dominates the nose with dried fruits and vanilla
    toffee notes breaking through on second nosing. Some hints of light
    citrus fruits with a floral note
    PALATE: Peaty with some dried fruits and nuts with a late and sweetening toffee character

    FINISH: Wood maturity is enhanced with peat smoke to linger for a long and dry finish"
    TWE
