Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 1996 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.60 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    It's a very pleasant and gentle dram. There's a lot of fruitiness and creaminess, which makes this a nice aperative-whisky for sunny days.
    • Nose
      Delicate and silky. Mainly fruity, malty and creamy. Is smells like yoghurt with cereals, pear and pineapple. I also get some faint herbal influences and some vanillins. Pleasant!
    • Taste
      As in the nose: soft and silky, in which the fruit (with addidional apricots and some citrus fruit), creamy yoghrurt and the malt are prolongued. There's also some marzipan.
    • Finish
      Rather short, yet pleasant and not too dry. There is more room for the malt, spices (ginger) and herbs. The fruitiness is still there, though on the background.

  2. granella2003 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A fifteen year old who Glenallachie show full of delicious

    flavors and is, at the opening of the bottle tropical aromas Aromas of pineapple,

    coconut, sweet corn accompanied by soft cream, malt and lime. On the palette display of

    rhubarb, grapefruit juice and spicy oak, a sweet and peppery character that ends

    in a fine and complex aftertaste of kumquats and raisins
