    A good standard whisky!
    Nothing special.

    I bought this bottle to better explore the distillery character of the GlenAllachie Distille.
    And that worked out wonderfully!
    Billy Walker continues at GlenAllachie where he left off at GlenDronach and BenRiach.
    (Of course with a completely different taste profile but with many interesting wood finishes)
    I have already had various GA maturations and barrel strengths in the glass.
    Since I tasted this GA Distillery Edition, I have found the character of the distillery in every other whisky from GA. Great experience!!
    • Nose
      82 82
      Fresh fruit notes, especially apple, with vanilla with cinnamon, heather honey, sweet meadow herbs
      A more interesting nose than expected
    • Taste
      80 80
      In the mouth it is soft and round. With the flat fruitiness of a fruit salad, especially apples. In addition, various spices and sweet herbs: vanilla, cinnamon, honey, meadow herbs
      The alcohol is well integrated
      No bitterness

  5. RobbievdB scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Young, near new make Glenallachie (assumably). Quite malty and grainish, wit young unripe fruits and malt sugars. Nothing fancy, but at this pricepoint a better buy than any blend in the same price range.

  6. OlivierSegers scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    I had much worse at this price point. Nose is nice and has some pleasant fruity flavors.

  10. Dre73 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Easy going whisky for starting drinkers, not very powerful, a little pale, lot of sweetness.
    Only the nose stands out, being pretty full and fruity as well.
    Alltogether it's not that bad at all.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Fruity, citrus, a lot of vanilla, and then caramel as well, very sweet. Later on some apples, and some grassy notes.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Pretty soft and smooth, only a little pepper. A lot of sweetness with a sour note underneath. Somewhat pale, a lot of vanilla and caramel.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Still some pepper, sweet, honey, vanilla. Also a hint of licorice now, not very long.

  17. holborndrinker scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    My first try of this distillery's output and very impressed - a decent dram for the price (£10 off down the local supermarket).
    • Nose
      Some sweet notes on the nose, but nothing jumps out straight away.
    • Taste
      A lovely balance of sweetness and fruit with a little acidity.
    • Finish
      Lingering - pleasantly.  Quite happy to savour the flavour on this one.

  18. holborndrinker scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    There is no age statement on this whisky, but it is a gorgeous dram - character, interest and affordable.  Why spend a fortune when something like this is pretty decent.

    The nastiest whisky I've ever tasted.
    • Nose
      Malt sweetness, honey, youth, alcoholic
    • Taste
      Watery, some honey, interestingly no youth anymore, nothing
    • Finish
      Short oak, some sweet honey, over
