This second release in the annual series from the Speyside based distillery, was produced using casks selected by Master Distiller Billy Walker, who this year is celebrating his 50th Anniversary in the Scotch whisky industry.
The GlenAllachie 30 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 2, is said to deliver notes of heather honey, sultanas, mocha, cinnamon, coconut shavings and dried fruits on the nose. Followed by notes of dark chocolate, figs, orange zest, treacle, raisins, cinnamon and nutmeg of the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Billy Walker, said: “When we first unveiled our 30-year-old Cask Strength annual release last year, we were completely overwhelmed and humbled by the immensely positive response from whisky fans around the world. This fuelled me with great enthusiasm to get underway with the next batch, endeavouring to raise the bar even higher with this instalment. We’re delighted to present the second batch of our eldest core release, delivering a bold and complex organoleptic profile truly representative of our house style and where we are taking The GlenAllachie Distillery.”
