How to Drink
The GlenAllachie Distillery was one of the few post-war distilleries designed by William Delmé-Evans and focused on using gravity-fed methods to reduce energy requirements. The distillery was built in 1967 and began its first production run in 1968. For most of its life, the GlenAllachie Distillery was a production distillery used to produce large quantities of malt whisky for use in blends like Chivas Regal and Clan Campbell. It wasn’t until the 1990s that the distillery saw its first official bottling.
From the distillery: On the nose, waves of heather honey, dark chocolate and figs, with notes of fruit cake, mocha and cinnamon. On the palate, lashings of fig syrup, mocha and treacle, followed by dark chocolate, sweet spices and heather honey, fused with ginger on the finish.
Almost five years since the GlenAllachie Distillers Company was formed, bringing the distillery back into private ownership, this very special expression of Scotch was released as an extension of the company’s core range. The Master Distiller, Billy Walker, has worked tirelessly on perfecting this expression since day one; evaluating casks and refining recipes to create something special. This is a product GlenAllachie proudly calls the 15 years old Scotch the jewel of their portfolio.
Nose: Smells like walking through the forest on a damp, foggy morning then going home and curling up by the fireplace in your knitted wool sweater. Lots of baking spice and raisins and a touch of clay.
Palate: Touch of sweetness at the front. Whole lot of woody notes on the mid palate.
Finish: So lightly smokey on the finish; very well balanced and evolves in a harmonic way on your palate from beginning to end.
