  2. Allandale scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Medium bodied.
    • Nose
      Cereal sweetness as from fresh malt grist.Fruity,flowery and fragrant with  an orangey and citric  hint. More fruity than flowery with distinct fresh Golden Delicious apple notes. Meandering peat smoke.
    • Taste
      Apples and sweet citrus,tangerine and mandarins. Cereal notes  reminiscent of shortbread. Oily mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Long, aromatic and harmonious finish, slight woody. The peat smoke returns, now in good order.Slight tannic dryness.

    tasted at the beautiful Ardshiel Hotel in Campbeltown

    nice sherry, needs a lot of time to open up (>15 min.) but then a beautiful bouquet of flowers, with hints of citrus
