Glenallachie trilogy2, 61% ABV, (blind tasted).

glenallachie trilogy 2

This is an exclusive bottling for The Green Welly Shop.

This bottling was blind tasted during the Blind Tasting Consortium tasting #7 on 19/12/2020.

Appearance – Heading towards Dr Pepper in colour now, beads up on the glass, beads and some thinner legs.

Nose – Big sherry notes, with some menthol, cola cubes, cream soda, old leather, some tropical fruit notes buried in there also, lemonade, old style sugar coated marzipan fruit shaped sweets.

Palate – Cola cubes, brown sugar, tropical fruits, raisins, dark chocolate, chilli, black peppercorns, dark chocolate orange, cigar leaves, I think the palate is better than the nose. It’s becoming spicier with time, ginger, cardamom, liquorice, dates, more dunnage, and more oak.

Finish – Salt, oil, medium long, icing sugar, black pepper, lots of oak building, some tannins but not drying, black cherries and black berries, liquorice torpedo sweets, cigar leaves, very nice.

Notes – This bottling is presented in its natural colour, non chill filtered, and at cask strength.

My thoughts – This was another absolute belter from this tasting evening, and i could go on and on about this whisky for so long, but i won’t, all i’ll say is this, if you want a dark, spicy, full on sulphur free sherry bomb that is just so Christmas in a glass, this is one for you, it easily sits in my “Wow” whisky list.

Would i buy a bottle? – I have to say for what’s in the bottle? Definitely, for the price? i’d have to leave it at full price, but if i saw one with a good discount i’d be all over it.

Notes – This bottling is presented in its natural colour, non chill filtered, and at cask strength.
