GlenAllachie 10 yo  French Virgin Oak

 

600 bottles for the US

Bottled at 48% and matured in American Oak ex-Bourbon Barrels then finished in French Virgin Oak for 18 months, this golden bronze malt obtains its silky tannins, sweet spice, and fruit notes from hogsheads made of French Oak (Quercus Robur) sourced from the Haute-Garonne region close to the Pyrenees. The fine-grained, consistent wood is air dried for 15 months before hosting the GlenAllachie spirit. The result is a delectable, subtle and earthy Single Malt.

COLOR: Ruby Red.

NOSE: Waves of ripe fruit and sweet spice, with notes of dark chocolate and roses.

TASTE: A fusion of plums, damsons, strawberries, rosehips, and dark chocolate.

GlenAllachie 10 yo Chinquapin Virgin Oak

 

1,200 bottles for the US.

Bottled at 48% and matured in American Oak ex-Bourbon Barrels then finished in Chinquapin Virgin Oak for 18 months, this exceptional malt gets its complex, zesty flavors from casks made of Chinquapin Oak (Quercus Muehlenbergii) sourced from the Northern Ozark region in Missouri. Chinquapin is a sub species of Quercus Alba and delivers spicy flavors and aromas. Air dried for almost four years, then toasted to medium level these casks give us the perfect balance of spirit and wood character.

COLOR: Rich Bronze.

NOSE: Bursting with orange zest, heather honey and pecan, with notes of butterscotch, nutmeg and licorice.

TASTE: Lashings of cinnamon, barley sugar, and toasted biscuits; followed by rose hips, orange peel and heather honey.

GlenAllachie 15 yo  Scottish Oak

300 bottles for the US.

Bottled at 48% and matured in American Oak ex-Bourbon Barrels then finished in French Virgin Oak for 18 months, this very rare malt obtains its sophisticated flavors from casks made of Scottish Sessile Oak (Quercus Petrae) sourced from the Atlantic coast. Scottish Oak is incredibly challenging to work with at all stages of production; growing, milling, and coopering. Its rarity, costliness, and tendency to knot mean it is scarcely used for whisky maturation. Before being filled,the wood was air dried for 36 months, then toasted and charred to a medium level. Using just a handful of casks, the resulting spirit delivers a truly exceptional drinking experience, oozing with vanilla and butterscotch, perfectly balanced with rich notes of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.

COLOR: Golden Sunset.

NOSE: Bursting with honeycomb, vanilla pods, and citrus fruits; with butterscotch, orange zest, and white chocolate.

TASTE: Lashings of heather honey, caramelised pine nuts, cinnamon, and toffeel followed by orange peel, lemon zest, banana, and ginger.

GlenAllachie 10 yo Rye Wood Finish

 

This gorgeous golden malt has been matured in premium American Oak Wood Barrels before being re-racked into bold and punchy Kentucky Rye Casks. The different toasting and charring levels of these casks combined with the Rye maturation adds a rich and spicy twist to the classic GlenAllachie style.

GlenAllachie 12 yo  Port Wood Finish

This gorgeous ruby red malt has been matured for over nine years in American Oak Barrels. It was then re-racked into Ruby Port Wood Pipes.
