Prior to 2017, when the distillery was acquired by a consortium led by master distiller Billy Walker, GlenAllachie was rarely seen as a single malt whisky. The much anticipated core range of the GlenAllachie distillery from Speyside was finally launched in July 2018. This 25 Year expression features whisky matured in former Pedro Ximénez sherry and oloroso sherry casks.

Tasting Notes

"Very delicate notes of orange peel and sultanas, but also an interesting aroma of rye bread. The balance is lovely, especially when hints of cigar tobacco, leather and soy come into play. The palate is classic sherry matured. Dark chocolate and oranges, a classic combination. A hint of menthol and almond oil as well."
