GlenAllachie Single Cask PX Hogshead #804970 2009

$350.00

Glenallachie distillery was built by Mackinlays in 1967 to meet the demands of its blends following an upturn in sales in the US. In its short history it has passed through the hands of Invergordon Distillers and Pernod-Ricard. During this period the focus was always on the provision of blends, with over 20 years between the first Mackinlay’s distillery bottlings of its single malt and the next official release from Chivas Brothers in 2005. Now in the hands of Billy Walker, Glenallachie is finally being pushed as an increasingly popular single malt brand since 2017.

We’re delighted to present our seventh batch of single casks specially selected for the UK, each demonstrating the unique interaction of the wood, spirit, and subsequent flavour extension.

Famed for his Sherry cask maturation expertise, Billy Walker selected this exceptional Pedro Ximénez hogshead (2009, #804970) to be bottled. The smaller size of this cask has injected an intense depth of both colour and flavour to our honeyed spirit, offering up a palate abundant with dark chocolate shavings, rich butterscotch and hints of sweet spices. The resulting malt delivers a sophisticated drinking experience with a velvety texture, making for a truly indulgent expression.

Bottled at 57.7%, unchillfiltered and natural colour, this expression is available exclusively in the UK.
