Edition Spirits Glenallachie Tasting Notes

Posted: June 11, 2017 in Glenallachie, Uncategorized

Edition Spirits ‘The First Editions’ Glenallachie 1995 (21 year old) 58.7%

Sherry Butt/ Code: EDI0218/ Dist: Mar 1995 Btl: 2017/ Tasted: Mar 2017

There’s not much sherry influence on the nose. In fact it is very estery with pineapple, peach, apricot and wonderfully luscious, mature honey. Hints of straw-like barley follow and with time it does develop a slight edginess, but also some floral honey as well.

The palate is maltier and darker with thick slabs of toffee-malt, barley and honey. Lightly herbal (finally a little sherry influence?) and citric with hints of oak vanilla. Slightly masked finish but the juicy fruit returns along with the mouth-watering citrus.

A drop of water makes the nose classically Spey – crisp and grassy. The palate displays more toffee’d oak and less of the citrus, but either neat or diluted it is very pleasant.
