Single Malts of Scotland (distilled at Glenallachie) 1992, 47.9%

Price: $105 Issue: Spring 2014 Reviewer: Dave Broom

There is something very bedtime drink about this Glenallachie, without it being a dram to have before retiring for the night. It's to do with the aromatic sensation of powdered malted milk and cocoa powder. The palate is simple, with some fresh apple, pear juice, and a lightly sour edge. The draff/malted milk re-emerges in the middle of the tongue. With water, pears come through, making it similar to a tequila blanco. All rather delicate. £63
