Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 1995 HB

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.35 points

  1. RobbievdB scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Some sources mention this whisky matured in a refill sherry barrel and I can relate to that. I also believe this Glenallachie is under rated. No definitely not your intense spiked modern day whisky but a well balanced dram with loads of sweetness from mixed red and forest fruits, chocolates, honey, toffee and spices like cinnamon and ginger. I like this one!

    Color: coppery. Very good, an old, godurioso speysider
    • Nose
      Triumph of sherry, red fruit, currant and pomegranate, coffee, chocolate, trifle, perfectly integrated alcohol, my friends say they feel a note of sulfur, I don't. With a few drops of water it becomes less fruity and softer and more creamy, keeping the chocolate and coffee notes
    • Taste
      Dry and tannic body, the alcohol now feels, sweet, notes of spice and wood, milk chocolate, coffee, but there is also a citric note of lemon candy. With water, alcohol can be tamed, maintains sweetness and increases the critical note that goes well with chocolate to give the suggestion of one of those chocolate bars with candied fruit and lemon peel. There is also a note of salted caramel
    • Finish
      Lungo, fruit, coffee, chocolate, a final mentholated suggestion. From the empty glass emerge sulphurous notes, of volcanic fumaroles (now I feel it, not before)
