Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 1976 TWhC

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 67.00 points

  1. hs305 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Please read my review of the miniature bottle here at Whiskybase id 83678) that justifies the 87 points score.

  2. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Im apprehensive about opening this bottle due to Serge’s review WF and i quote: “My worst whisky ever, totally putrid. 1 point [that's right - and that might well have been a little too much]”. So here goes.
    N: Smells safe enough, pineapples & lime jelly, fermented apples with a floury ethanol briny maltiness. Its a curious alcohol, at times its more a botanical gin mixed with a sweet fortified wine joined by Heinz sandwich spread, sweet malt biscuits, caramel, old ice-cream wafers and rubbery, melted tutty-fruity ice-cream developing. There is an odd murkiness in the background but overall its not too shabby.
    T: A spirit arrival quicky mellows to a salivating vanilla maltiness, a touch of wood pepper then pineapple and citrus lime notes before the maltiness really settles in. Lots of spirit around with a drying nature but it doesn’t get out of control.
    F: Malty, lime and chocolate vanilla resides. Rather drying cardboard spirit finish after such a salivating developing.
    C: Not without its problems this Speysider is enjoyable overall a spirit led fruity sweet malty malt. Im not sure what was up with Serge's sample but that was certainly not this thank goodness.
