GlenAllachie 10 Year Port Wood Finish
The GlenAllachie // Speyside, Scotland
The GlenAllachie Distillery has extended its range of whiskies with the launch of its first-ever series of limited edition wood finishes. The trio of signature expressions highlight the wood management expertise of master distiller Billy Walker. The GlenAllachie 10 Year Port Wood Finish was first matured in American oak barrels before being re-racked into vintage ruby port wood pipes sourced in northern Portugal.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask TypeAmerican oak & ruby port pipes
"Soft candy-esque strawberries, cherries and raspberry draw you in, followed by a hint of rose petals and caramel-glazed, baked apples. The palate is richer—with treacle, dried red fruits and cocoa powder—but also pretty spicy and slightly astringent. The wood is a little too dominant here, but overall a promising whisky."
