Up until 2017, GlenAllachie was only found in blends. Then came along renowned Master Distiller Billy Walker, who brought back into private ownership and and took over the running of the distillery. In case you didn't know, Billy Walker is the man who made The GlenDronach what it is today! This is a new release from the distillery that spends 8 years in American oak barrels, before being finished in Koval Rye quarter casks, which results in a quicker maturation. The reason for the rye is to bring woody spice notes and flavours to the nose and palate. Woody nutmeg and cinnamon, with cooked apples to add balance. A chocolate palate of honey, black peppercorn and orange. A maple syrup finish with light oak. Sip to savour this Scotch.
