GlenAllachie 1991 26 Year 50th Anniversary Bottling #100285
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 1991 26 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.
"A nose that is freshy, fruity and vibrant. Perfumed almost, with some light floral notes too. However, there's plenty of vanilla sweetness and caramel. The palate showcases tropical fruits as well as toffee. It is a tad dry and spicy, but nevertheless highly enjoyable."
