Low Stock

Part of the Distillery's new core range, the 12 year is bottled unchill-filtered without added colouring after maturing in a mix of virgin oak as well as PX and Oloroso sherry casks. 

The GlenAllachie 12 Year is one of the newly independent distillery’s first core releases, alongside a cask strength 10 Year, 18 Year and 25 Year. As with the BenRiach Distillery Co.’s whiskies, Billy Walker has opted to bottle at 46% without colouring or chill-filtering. That tugs at our heartstrings!

The GlenAllachie 12 year was featured on Day 12 of our own 2018 KWM Whisky Advent Calendar.

Andrew’s Tasting Note

Nose: Old English Butterscotch ice cream, plum pudding, silky soft leather gloves and tangy Manuka honey; dark chocolate shavings and white chocolate Hershey’s Kisses.

Palate: rich, fruity and layered; a beautifully balanced melange of both sherry and bourbon notes; more Old English Butterscotch, Manuka honey and plum pudding; Fruit by the Foot, with cooked raisins and dried prunes; salty licorice and dark bakers chocolate towards the back.

Finish: medium in length and intensity; still very balanced and smooth.

Comment: if this is a sign of things to come we are all in store for some great bottlings from the next it Speyside distillery. 

Distiller's Tasting Note

Nose: Butterscotch and honey playing the lead, with raisins and mocha in the background.

Taste: Honey, marzipan and bananas, with lashings of butterscotch, raisins and a delicate hint of mocha.

Distiller's Description

"In this era of mergers and consolidations we go against the grain; an independent, Scottish owned and managed whisky company. We chose to step away from the corporate treadmill and short-term targets. Instead, we focus on the important things; making great whisky and enjoying life.

"It is in this tradition that we would like to introduce the most important release in the history of The GlenAllachie Distillers Company; GlenAllachie 12 year old, the heart of our range, a landmark bottling. Our best casks selected and bottled under the careful eye of our Master Distiller Billy Walker."
