GlenAllachie Releases Second 30-Year-Old Cask Strength Single Malt Batch
The GlenAllachie just launched the second installment of its oldest and most valuable core offering, the 30-year-old Cask Strength Batch 2 Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Just shortly after announcing whisky veteran Billy Walker’s 50th anniversary in the Scotch whisky industry, the distiller follows that news with this next batch of the 30-year-old spirit.
Batch 2, which carries a suggested retail price of £600, is a limited release of 2,000 bottles globally, each bottle encased in a bespoke black box with gold foil detailing. GlenAllachie Releases Second 30-Year-Old Cask Strength Single Malt Batch
The second installment blends mature whiskies from eight casks handpicked by Walker from whisky stocks spanning more than 50,000 barrels maturing across 16 on-site warehouses at GlenAllachie.
The result of Walker’s blending and wood management is a whisky with rich Sherry-matured elegance, a flavor profile that reveals layers of Seville orange, coffee beans, coconut and Medjool dates.
Bottled at cask strength of 50.8%, non chill filtered and at natural colour, this small batch release truly showcases GlenAllachie in its purest form, the perfect unison of cask and distillery character.
A combination of eight hand-selected PX, Oloroso and virgin oak casks, Batch 2 is limited to just 2,000 bottles worldwide.
Bursting with heather honey, sultanas and mocha, followed by waves of cinnamon, coconut shavings and dried fruits.
Lashings of dark chocolate, figs and orange zest, with treacle, raisins, cinnamon and hints of nutmeg.
