GlenAllachie 12 Year Old Bottling Note

12 year old single malt Scotch whisky from GlenAllachie, released in mid-2018 following Billy Walker taking the reins of the distillery in 2017. This expression features whisky matured in Pedro Ximénez, Oloroso and virgin oak casks, resulting in a huge flavour profile of fruit, oak and vanilla.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fried banana, almond, cola cubes, freshly cut oak.

Palate: Stem ginger and sultana, oily barley and buttery vanilla.

Finish: Very slightly chocolatey on the finish.

GlenAllachie 12 Year Old Reviews

A real crowd pleaser

Not a sherry monster, but heavily influenced, the sherry finish and wood shine. Deep toffee and fruit, apples and banana, and a hint of allspice at the back of your nose. It's a glass crawler too, clings beautifully to the sides of the Glencairn.

Smooth and spicy in the mouth, the rich butter toffee comes to the fore, mixed with a strong ginger tingle - stewed fruit pie and caramel alongside the little pepper catch. Good stuff.

The finish is medium, but very warming. The dark burnt toffee remains with a little hint of dark coffee.

A fantastic single malt for the money, and a crowd pleaser.

A complex and rewarding dram

Toffee banana, salted caramel & creme brûlée. A lovely enveloping mouthfeel like it’s hugging your tongue. Long lingering finish. Will definitely buy again.

A complex dram

Great complexity. Toffee banana, creme brûlée & salted caramel. Lovely, starchy mouthfeel. Will definitely buy again.

Complex, sweet, earthy.

Very different to any whisky I have drank.
Complex and intriguing.
Mellow and deep rooted with an earthy sweetness.

Great stuff!

Fantastic single malt! This is great stuff with so much flavor and aroma. Fruit, dessert, ripe fruit, young fruit, sweet and a salty dessert. It’s great stuff for the reprice.

Good Stuff

Like previous review did not think that much of this on first tasting but after time in the bottle has become one of my favourite 12 yr olds and had to go back and get another bottle once it was dusted. Ripe baked banana and pineapple with nicely balance oak influence which balances better over time as the bottle goes down. Very tasty and enjoyable.

Nectar

Absolutely gorgeous, rich, sumptious & smooth as hell for 48%. Would never have expected this outcome from sherry/virgin oak combo, but it really works & tastes unique.
There are some frankly ludricrous, unjust reviews of this whisky posted here, & while i understand we are all entitled to our opinions, sometimes these can be misleading. Fortunately, we'd already had this, & a few other of the new Glenallachie bottlings. Yet to expereience a bad one, but i'm particularly fond of this, because it's lovely & excellent value.
Keep up the gooood work, Billy & co, some of us can tell you guys love yer whisky!

Improves over time

Can’t remember a whisky that benefited from open-bottle time more than this one. Really didn’t care for this whisky upon first opening (especially the finish), but subsequent tastings were really quite delicious.
