GlenAllachie 12 YO Speyside (700ml)
Scotch Learn More
The flagship in GlenAllachie’s new core range, released in July 2018. Matured in a mixture of virgin oak, oloroso sherry and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, this has sweet flavours of honey, marzipan, bananas and butterscotch.
This single malt is the recent brainchild of master blender, Billy Walker (previously of Glendronach and BenRiach fame). The GlenAllachie 12 brings all the expected notes of stewed plums, milk chocolate, nougat and cereal grains to the table with a slightly more elegant touch than the more dense Glendronach. Beyond the obvious, there lurks something old school reminiscent of Mortlach with sulfurous beeswax candles, browned butter, and gentle spices that echo on the long silky finish. This is a deft new take on the classic Speyside style that should be staple for any single malt fan.
