Flesinhoud: 700 ml
A 15-year-old Glenallachie single malt, matured in a combination of Pedro Ximenez and oloroso sherry casks, creating a smooth, rich character. Aromas of raisins, butterscotch and sweet spices fill the nose, and the palate offers notes of dark chocolate, orange peel, banana, raisins and caramel.
Nose: aromatic and really old style, not too far from some ultra-premium blend in style. Some sherry, oranges, toffee, caramel, vanilla cake, butterscotch, malt? Develops more on leather, smoked tea, walnuts and touches of motor oil. Maybe just traces of scented soap and paraffin. Mouth: round, malty and chocolaty, with some liquorice and various cakes and pies. Pleasant mouth feel, not too thin. Again, tastes like some high-end blend in a way. Finish: medium long, a little drier, with notes of green tea. Caramel in the aftertaste. Comments: it?s a very classy whisky, very easy to quaff and truly old style in my opinion. Very nice sherry. I will keep the rating I came up with at the MM Awards 2010. 86 points.
