  3. Falnor scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Should have improved if it wasn't bottled after just 8 years. Still a fair price for a lightly sherried/ cask strenght.
    Also nice to taste a Glenallachie. You don't see them everyday.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruity start with red apples and a few raspberries. Custard cakes for the creamy vanilla taste. Lemons and pineapple. A little dusty after a while.
    • Taste
      A little hot that hints towards the young age. Lemons and pepers. Gingerbread, cookies and fudge for a malty core with sweetness.

      The alcohol makes it a heavier dram than it is. With a few drops of water: More white bread, more caramels, fruitier.
    • Finish
      Spicy peper prolonges the finish of apples, lemon and ginger.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Still too immature, should have gotten more time.
    • Nose
      Caramel, apple, cherry, fig and hazelnut cookie.
    • Taste
      Caramel, blueberry, cookie, apple and fig.
    • Finish
      Caramel, blueberry, apple and cookie.
