The Whisky World Teams Up With GlenAllachie Distillery for an Exclusive Single Cask Whisky
Available online 15th June 2020.
An accomplished collaboration between the upmarket online store and award-winning Scottish malt distillery, the unique GlenAllachie Single Cask Whisky selected by The Whisky World is released on the 15th June 2020.
Exclusively available at The Whisky World, the GlenAllachie Single Cask Whisky will appeal to whisky fans of all calibre, and especially those who appreciate heavily sherried whisky.
Distilled in April 2000 and bottled close to two decades later in March 2020, this aromatic liquid promises an intense taste due to its almost twenty years investment in the maturation process. The cask type for this GlenAllachie whisky is a first-fill Pedro Ximenez (PX) Sherry Hogshead; bottled at a natural cask strength of 52.5%.
Prior to its maturation in PX Hogshead cask, the whisky was aged in an ASB (American Standard Barrel/Refill Bourbon) which it had been in since distillation. This cask was amongst the first batches that Master Distiller at GlenAllachie Billy Walker re-racked into Sherry wood on purchase of the distillery in 2017, so the finish in the first fill PX Hogshead was for a minimum of 2 years. As standard, most casks are only finished between 12 and 18 months, so this process combined with the excellent selection of casks by Billy Walker himself is the reason it has an excellent sherry finish and depth of colour.
The official tasting notes for this exquisite whisky, as noted by Billy Walker, are as follows;
Colour – Rich Mahogany
Nose – Vanilla Pods, Mocha, Pineapple and Plantains
Taste – Lashings of butterscotch, dark chocolate and treacle, with orange zest, almonds and cinnamon.
