Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2008 DH

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.80 points

  1. diamond2000 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: restrained, brown bread, grain, dusty burlap, raisins and dried fruits, cherry jam, tree bark. After breathing, strawberries and jam from it are added, sweet cream, the wood effect is also enhanced.

    Taste: dark raisins, dried mushrooms, a lot of pungency and spices, cinnamon, cloves, turmeric, oak-tannin, burnt berry jam.

    Finish: enveloping, dark raisins, spicy wood, fading spicy spices, sweet herbal liquor (Jägermeister), berry jam, wood bitterness, brackish. Enveloping, longer than average.

    Rating: 85

    Bottom line: great work barrels! Once again, I am convinced that a good sherry barrel does wonders even at such a young age. For 7 years it turned out very tasty, malt, motifs, spices, raisins, pleasant wood, everything is in balance, the barrel was active and the bottler did not lose that the time for bottling had arrived.
