GlenAllachie 1990 27 Year 50th Anniversary Bottling #2517
GlenAllachie // Speyside, Scotland
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 1990 27 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.
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 TypeSherry Butt
"Interesting hints of applesauce, orange juice and muscat grapes, this is a proper fruity whisky. Although there is quite a lot of hazelnut paste as well. The palate is well-rounded and gentle. More classically sherried, with dried red fruits and milk chocolate. Somewhat herbaceous, giving it an extra layer of complexity."
