Whisky Reviews for Glenallachie 1996 SV

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. DocF scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Color: Pale Straw. In nose and mouth I have superficial young pomace brandy, even prolonged breathing changes little. In the mouth it is of quite oily consistency, with prolonged chewing earth and acacia honey come to light. I have not found any alcohol. The finish is medium long, I have earth again, a little scorched wood.

    A simple, at least in the mouth quite delicious whisky, the alcohol strength I would start in the lower range of 40-48%. Around the 81 points. Earth almost makes me think of Highland Park, everything else points more to Speyside, ~ 10yo. Because of the weak nose, I would probably not want to buy it regardless of the price.
