Reviving GlenAllachie, a distillery in Speyside, and launching it as a serious single malt scotch, is Billy Walker's new project after selling The BenRiach Company to Brown-Forman. This vintage 1989 28 Year is part of six of whiskies bottled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the distillery. This sextet also represents the first ever official bottlings under new ownership, all single cask and all bottled at cask strength. Released in April 2018, the 50th Anniversary Bottlings sold out quickly.

Tasting Notes

"A whisky with a slight dirty edge to it. It is quite meaty, with stewed fruits, but also honey and beeswax. Finally a hint of milk chocolate and ginger. The palate is sweet, yet dry and with a subtle sourness. The oak shavings and spices work well with the dark chocolate. Good, decent whisky."
