The Speyside based GlenAllachie Distillery, has today announced the launch of it’s latest 10 Year Old cask strength bottling.
The GlenAllachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 7 (56.8% ABV) is a single malt Scotch whisky, which was matured in a combination of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry puncheons, Rioja barriques and virgin oak casks.

The casks were selected by Master Distiller Billy Walker, who this year celebrates reaching a half-century as a blender in the Scotch whisky industry. Billy holds widespread recognition for his hands-on approach and innovative maturation philosophy. Each release of the decade-old expression reflects this distinguished expertise in wood management.
The GlenAllachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 7, is said to deliver notes of heather honey, dried fruit, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange peel, mocha and treacle on the nose. Followed by notes of dark chocolate, figs, heather honey, raisins, cinnamon, plums and hints of orange zest on the palate.
Commenting on the news, Billy Walker, said: “Every batch we create of our 10-year-old Cask Strength represents the direction in which we are taking The GlenAllachie. From the outset, our defined objective has been to achieve a bold and flavourful yet balanced spirit, predominantly matured in Sherry wood, but with interesting twists introduced by unusual cask types. This latest batch is a complex and enjoyable drinking experience which brings together spirit from some truly exceptional Sherry, Wine and virgin oak casks. I must say, this one is pretty special!”
The GlenAllachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 7, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £62.99.
