The elder brother in the trio of cask finished whiskies that were released by Glenallachie in the middle of 2019.
This whisky was aged initially in American oak casks, before being finished in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks for the last 2 years of its maturation.
The final result is a classic Sherried Speyside whisky, which serves up heaps of dried fruit and sweet spice flavours. Drinkers can expect notes of raisins, toffee, prunes, plums, berries, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, nutmeg, dark chocolate, brown sugar, banana and citrus peel.
Bottled at 48% ABV and without chill filtration or colouration, this is an intense, well bodied and flavoursome dram.
Great stuff again from Billy Walker and Co.
