GlenAllachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength

 

The very first bottling of GlenAllachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength happened by chance. In 2017, whilst reviewing parcels of stock from 2007 and 2008, their Master Distiller Billy Walker was so delighted by the balance and depth of the samples that he immediately decided to add a younger expression to their core range.

 

The Fourth Batch was awarded ‘World’s Best Single Malt’ at the World Whiskies Awards 2021, so the bar has been set high as they introduce their sixth release. The GlenAllachie Cask Strength Batch 6 is a combination of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry puncheons along with a small quantity of Virgin Oak and Rioja casks. The resulting whisky bursts with indulgent notes of of sticky honey, warming mocha, orange peel and spicy cinnamon.

 

Batch 6 is bottled at 57.8%, non chill filtered and natural colour.

 

 

Tasting Notes: Waves of heather honey, dried fruit, cinnamon and nutmeg, followed by orange peel, mocha and treacle on the nose. Then on the palate you get lashings of dark chocolate, figs and heather honey, with raisins, cinnamon, plums and hints of orange zest.

 

At the helm of The GlenAllachie Distillers Company is renowned Master Blender, Billy Walker. Since acquiring the distillery in 2017, Billy has transformed the spirit slumbering in thier 16 on-site warehouses into something truly spectacular.
