GlenAllachie 8 Year Old

Boasting heaps of rich sherried character in true GlenAllachie style, this exquisite eight year old single malt joined the distillery's core range in 2022. Under the expertise of master distiller Billy Walker, an innovative selection of the finest casks including Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry puncheons, virgin oak casks, and red wine barriques combine to create an impressively fruit-rich sipper.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Spiced fruit loaf with sweet cinnamon, a smidge of ginger, and juicy raisins. A touch of nutty malt balances floral honey.

Palate Rich, dark muscovado sugar, more dried fruits with sultanas, and dates dusted with fragrant baking spice.

Finish Maple syrup, roasted almonds, a touch of menthol rests beneath, with earthy coffee and cocoa.

Reviews for GlenAllachie 8 Year Old
It's a decent drop alright if you like your sherry cask scotch, but i feel that after experiencing the 12 (which doesnt cost much more), and the 15 this is a little lacking in maturity and a tad harsher. (as you would probably expect being younger). Don't get me wrong i'll finish the bottle, and IMHO it's better once it's had some oxygen after opening, but although im always happy to try a new expression, doubt i'll be buying it again

An excellent bottle, especially for the price.
A rich and full sherried malt. Nicely spiced and plenty of fruit balanced by good wood. Smooth (but not too smooth) with 46% ABV. Lingering finish. I think I may actually prefer it to the 12 year. Excellent for the price.

Gorgeous and thought provoking flavour profile.
This is a lovely dram with a VERY interesting flavour profile for an 8yo. On the nose I get candle wax and sultanas. On first sip I get that waxyness and reminisce about new books and libraries, and didn't initially get the sweetness. The development was slightly salty, like eating on the newspaper wrapping after a beautiful fish and chips. The sweetness comes through with subsequent nosing and tasting. The nose gets more bourbony with cherry and hard boiled sweets coming through with a hint of pepper in the finish. If you think you might like sucking on a parcel of jolly ranchers, wrapped in oily, salty newspaper all enclosed with a wax seal, then you will love this. I did.

not at all bad for age. typical billy walker
A bottle of Glenallachie 8yr old. Lots of rich dark fruits in this along with spices etc. Still young and vibrant but obviously a little bit of an edge still. The nose is good, with sherried fruit and a touch of putty; the finish is strong.
But, very nice.

Lashings of treacle, dried sultanas and butterscotch
It's been 8 years, but it's been compressed with the best technology It's like a modern device.
It's rather short, but it's better to hold it in your mouth and swallow it
I hope it's officially imported to Korea
