Under the radar but as good as any (more expensive) official NAS cask strength bottlings from the likes of aberlour or glengoyne. On first taste, but my word, it’s strong! It needs water (get it to 50% ish) and give it a good 15 minutes in the glass and it’s a fantastic orange marmalade Christmas cake brandy like whisky. Great stuff.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on our Glenallachie 7YO. It certainly does pack a punch but as you've found, water and time really bring out those delicious flavours. Enjoy!
Cracking Cask Malt like GlenAllachie very much as a 12 Year old 46% this good step up to a cask of this amazingly good Malt Marque. Prefer GlenAllachie to the 'Neighbours' any day £ for £ better malt for less money in either expression.
A must in my cupboard is this.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review of our Glenallachie 7 Year Old. I'm really pleased to hear your husband is enjoying it and thank you for your kind words.
On the nose: charred wood on the front, along with malted barley, burnt sugar, cracked pepper and a hint of light green fruits.
On the palate: more charred wood, recently put-out campfire, malted barley sweetness, apple, fig, pear.
On the finish: some more charred wood, but lighter. Hints of malted barley, a slightly bitter note.
Overall, it is a pleasant and interesting bottle. It doesn’t feel balanced, it certainly is on the spicy charred oaky side, but adding a dash of water opens the sweet fruit notes up a little more. Nonetheless, for £45 it’s a good bottle for if you want something a bit adventurous.
Thank you for taking the time to review our Warehouse Collection Glenallachie. It is a very interesting and unusual whisky so we are glad you enjoyed the adventure it offers.
