Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 2009 DL

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.50 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    N- First thought of nosing were "is this peated?" Probably not but packed with fresh-y new make, pear schnapps and cereal. Feinty, also rather choking, blade-y and zesty. Young, dry coconut shell with underlying chocolate and horlicks. Broad width that are solid and rounded. (87/21)

    P- Nail polish, coconut oil, juniper, herbs and sake. Hay, hints of chemical and medicinal. Sounds unpromising but somehow, like the abrasive aroma, it rounded up quite well. (86/20)

    F- Medium, finished moderately lean, but clean and pleasant with a fine subtle sweet sake, sort white agricole aftertaste. (85/19)

    B/B- 85/19. Young and interesting one.

    Weighted Rate- 79pt
