Glenallachie 12 year old Port Wood Finished, 48%

Price: $120 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: David Fleming

The nose has a pleasant oiliness, with red fruit undertones, nutmeg, marzipan, rose water, and black tea. Sweet on the palate, with notes of orange peel, caramel, dark chocolate, and a hint of dried raspberries, punctuated by pepper spice and coffee on the back palate. It does very well with water, which brings more pronounced red fruit notes of raspberry and strawberry. The finish is mid-length, with lots of vanilla, strawberry, and spice.
