GlenAllachie Single Cask Moscatel Barrique #418 2008

$390.00

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.

With a passion for exploring the influence of interesting wood types on our spirit, Billy Walker specially selected this Moscatel barrique. Produced from a particularly aromatic variety of grape, Moscatel is a deliciously sweet dessert wine hailing from Spain. Maturation in one of these wine barriques (2008 #418) has created a gloriously bronzed golden malt, abundant with fresh fruits and runny honey, perfectly complemented by citrus aromas and hints of ginger.

Bottled at 56.7%, unchilfiltered and natural colour, this expression is available exclusively in the UK.
