Quick Fire Whisky Tasting Notes

The GlenAllachie 15 Year Old
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
46% ABV


Nose: A symphony of sherry soaked sultanas and raisins – tea stewed prunes – spiced baked apples – mixed candied peel - glacé cherries – James Martin’s sticky toffee pudding – Jamaican spiced bun - aniseed twists – smoked walnuts – charred oak and the subtlest suggestion of Cafe Creme cigarillos.

Palate: An afternoon tea tease of banana and walnut cake, Jamaica ginger cake, millionaire’s shortbread and mince pies steeped in sherry – orange peel – aniseed twists – Starbucks iced caffè mocha – salted caramel and wave upon wave of wood spice.

Finish: A sassily sweet and spiced, long lingering finish, that gives this sensory dram of a story its happy ever after!

Summary: Sweet, spiced and all things nice! Another gargantuanly glorious core range expression from GlenAllachie. A distillery which since being taken over by Billy Walker and his team in 2017, continues to be all about killer and no filler bottlings!
