Glenallachie 1999 Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail)
Another dram from the awesome Gordon and MacPhail Wood Makes the Whisky Campaign, this is the Glenallachie 1999 Connoisseurs Choice bottling.
Glenallachie is a distillery i'm not hugely familiar with, the only other review on here is the Glenallachie 2008 7yr Provenance (Douglas Laing) which was undertaken by Neil due to work commitments by my myself.
There do seem to be some familiar streaks in them with fruity notes coming out strong, for me there is quite a large element of pear, both pear drops and tinned pears, in this dram which is a flavour profile i really like and reminds me of Aultmore a little.
This is a fresh easy to drink dram, with lots of pear influence and sweetness, right up my street and for under £50 a bargain dram also, a real must buy and i genuinely recommend you get over to Master of Malt now and buy one.
Thanks again to Gordon & Macphail for the official sample.
pear drops come first, then they become more tinned fruit salad in syrup, hints of aniseed and menthol, black jack chews, syrup and caramel pieces, gentle dusty notes.
Sweet juicy, tangy with citrus peels and pith, hints of the pear drops and a blast of menthol and eucalyptus, tinned pears and fresh juicy fruit chewing gum
Sweet juicy fruit chewing gum, edges of tinned fruit and syrup.
