GlenAllachie 2014 7YO 52.8%

Nose: When first opened, the flavours were very, very and very pressed down by the wood. There are only 3 elements: wood, sulfur and bright fruit expressions. Tight on the nose, but once the liquid gets a chance to breathe, you have prune, sweet caramel, brown sugar and wet wood as the first package to be delivered. Light sulfur will still mingle for a while but disappear with a good amount of air time. Vanilla and malt expressions are present as well.

Mouth: (After some air time) A soft, sweet milk chocolate expression mixed with berries and some light bitter notes. Wet oaks with some nuts and a good touch of cream in the mouth. And yes, Oak spice is present. The body still felt its towards the lighter side.

Finish: Towards the dry side, dry creamy oak with some spice. Light milky chocolate is back on the finish after a while.

With one more year of ageing, you are more than likely to drink the woods.

Anyways, it is a very drinkable 7YO. Just a little pricy for 7YO.

Nice scale: 83/100
