Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2003 IM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.08 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Lucky came out a mole, interesting, very deep and varied, for its years, the aroma, a little sagging and rustic, but dense and rich taste and excellent finish; All this, I ask you to note, the 12-year-old spacer is far from being a barrel fortress. The sherry barrel is very successfully superimposed on the foundation without crushing it and not giving out another sherry standard (a thing itself is not bad, but often very monotonous). Of the minuses - sharp woody notes in taste.
    • Nose
      Clear, raw, the first nose - raisins, radish; processed wood, dried fruits - raisins, dried apricots; citrus fruits - orange, lemon, kumquat; confectionery notes - shortbread, glaze; a little solvent, ether, blown grapes, cardboard, dusty paper, barely perceptible sulfur tones.
    • Taste
      Raisins, sharp woody notes, red pepper, dried fruits - dried apricots, prunes, paper.
    • Finish
      Prunes, kvass, light beer, cola, exploding caramel, refreshing, prolonged.
