Description

One of the results of the US-fuelled 1960s whisky boom, GlenAllachie was built in 1967 by Scottish & Newcastle Breweries’ distilling subsidiary, Mackinlay’s.  It has only very rarely been seen as a single malt bottling – most notably as part of Chivas Brothers’ Cask Strength series.

In July 2017, it was announced that Chivas Brothers had agreed to sell GlenAllachie to The GlenAllachie Distillers Company, operated by former BenRiach Master Distiller Billy Walker, ex-Inver House Distillers Master Distiller Graham Stevenson, and Trisha Savage. A capital ‘A’ was added to the distillery name, in keeping with the changes Walker made to BenRiach and GlenDronach under his stewardship.

Taste

First matured in American Oak, ex-bourbon barrels and then finished for 18 months in virgin Spanish oak.

Brand Tasting Notes: The nose has orchard fruits, baking spices, and sticky toffee pudding with notes of brown sugar, glazed cherries, and citrus. The palate is bursting with chocolate, coffee, and heather honey followed by pepper, ginger, and molasses. The finish has bananas and sultanas.
