The Glenallachie 25 Year Old Review

23rd August 2018
Review of the new Glenallachie 25 Year Old.

The Glenallachie 25 Year OldThe Glenallachie 25 Year Old sits at the top of the recently launched core range from the Speyside distillery.

The distillery describe it as being a beautiful beaten copper colour following its quarter of a century maturing in Pedro Ximinez, Oloroso and American oak casks.

Bottled at 48% ABV, it is naturally coloured, non-chill-filtered and has an RRP of 230.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A deliciously inviting nose, full of subtleties, sweet fondant orange, raisins, touch of ginger, a hint of cinnamon. Also notes of soft sweet caramel and honey.

Taste: Rich, full bodied. Dark chocolate and sugared almond are joined by candied sweet orange, deliciously juicy sultanas and raisins, touch of ginger and cinnamon.

Finish: Long, those lovely sweet fruits linger long into the finish before leaving some coffee notes and lovely mildly drying oak spices.

Comment: A deliciously stunning example of Glenallachie and by far the best expression I have had from this Speyside distillery. From nose to finish this does not let you down, I would guess the folks at Glenallachie know this hence the asking price but if your pockets are deep enough this will not disappoint. Bottling at 48% ABV has also clearly added to the pleasure.

SMW Scotch Blended Whisky Score 93/100
