GlenAllachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 8
Carefully crafted by Master Blender Billy Walker, who this year celebrates five decades in the whisky industry, this release is the epitome of the art of wood management. A marriage of whisky from a combination of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso Sherry puncheons, along with a small quantity of Virgin Oak and Rioja casks, the resulting liquid is bursting with indulgent notes of tangy orange, rich mocha and sweet spices. Presented at natural cask strength of 57.2% ABV, without chill-filtration and at natural colour to showcase the whisky in its purest form.
NOSE: Bursting with mocha, nutmeg and walnut oil, with notes of heather honey, sweet raisins and dried red berries.
TASTE: Lashings of cinnamon spice, molasses and honeycomb, followed by ginger and dark chocolate, with hints of nutmeg and fennel on the finish.
