Glenallachie 1972 Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Billy

    Nose: Sticky cherries and stewed rhubarb - sweet, rich and fruity but a little bit sour. Hints of marzipan, sweet pastry, leather and orange juice concentrate.

    Palate: Thick and sweet, with raisins, oranges, spiced dark chocolate, anis, rich dark wood and a bit of worked leather.

    Finish: Cloves, cinnamon, sour green fruit and lingering spicy wood.

    Comment: A dark and spicy beast of a whisky, with surprising orangey notes and a nice dry finish.
