Trader Joe's GlenAllachie 13 year old Speyside (Distilled in 2004), 40%

Price: $55 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Earthiness and aromas of toffee apple, stewed fruit, ginger, allspice, walnuts, and dried figs sweep into a sweet, raisiny palate that also has flavors of candied nuts, semi-dark chocolate, dried fruit, caramel, and apples. Sweet, with almonds and chocolate on the finish—lots of tasty sherry flavors here, but an uncomplicated character. (Trader Joe's)
