This latest release from the Speyside based distillery, which has been described by Master Distiller Billy Walker as “the perfect representation of the distillery’s DNA,” joins the brands award-winning 10 Year Old Cask Strength, 12 Year Old, 18 Year Old and 25 Year Old core range bottlings.
Commenting on the launch Billy Walker, said: “I’ve been working on our 15 Year Old release since we acquired GlenAllachie back in October 2017. In that time I’ve been intimately following the development of the various casks and I believe the 15 year old is the perfect balance of distillery and cask influence.”
He went onto say: “For this 15 Year Old, I chose PX and Oloroso puncheons and hogsheads to deliver complete depth and finish. This whisky is rich in sweet spices, raisins and butterscotch, with waves of banana, orange peel and dark chocolate. The extra years the whisky spent maturing in the sherry wood casks extends the flavour further.”
The GlenAllachie 15 Year Old, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £62.99.
