Glenallachie 1972 Reviews
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.
