Notes from the Distillery:
Our very first bottling of The GlenAllachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength happened by chance. In 2017, whilst reviewing parcels of stock from 2007 and 2008, our Master Distiller Billy Walker was so delighted by the balance and depth of the samples that he immediately decided to add a younger expression to our core range.
Our Fourth Batch was awarded ‘World’s Best Single Malt’ at the World Whiskies Awards 2021, so the bar has been set high as we introduce our seventh release. The GlenAllachie Cask Strength Batch 7 is a combination of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry puncheons along with a small quantity of Virgin Oak and Rioja casks. The resulting whisky bursts with indulgent notes of of ripe plums, dark chocolate and sticky raisins, all coupled with classic GlenAllachie honeyed charm.
Batch 7 is bottled at 56.8%, non chill filtered and natural colour.
Color: Rich Mahogany.
Nose: Waves of heather honey, dried fruit, cinnamon and nutmeg, followed by orange peel, mocha and treacle.
Taste: Lashings of dark chocolate, figs and heather honey, with raisins, cinnamon, plums and hints of orange zest.

World's Best Single Malt - World Whiskies Awards 2021 (Batch 4)
"The nose opens up initially in a soft way, with light toasted notes and some oak and honey. The palate gets a little more punchy with dried apricots, white pepper and cloves, all of which is balanced by soft caramel, pineapple and coffee notes leading to the finish."

"This captivating whisky displays complex and sweet aromatics, including sweet heather honey; juicy citrus fruit; soft, buttery shortbread; soft orchard fruits and creamy marzipan. A delicate vanilla spiciness rounds things off superbly with its lengthy, sweet finish!"
