Douglas McGibbon Glenallachie Tasting Notes

Posted: June 12, 2015 in Glenallachie, Scotch Whisky A-G

Douglas McGibbon Provenance Glenallachie 2005 (9 year old) 46%

Sherry Finish/ Code: PRV1111/ Dist: Mar 2005 Btl: Oct 2014/ Tasted: Nov 2014

Quite dense and honeyed aromas. Chunky vanilla and developing herbal notes mingle with lovely fragrant honey and barley. With time it becomes quite fresh and citric.

The palate opens with toasted toffee and oily barley. The oak has muted the palate a bit. A little short, but pleasantly spicy finish with a lightly tannic after-taste.
