Glenallachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 9
“Every batch we create of our 10-year-old Cask Strength represents the direction in which we are taking The GlenAllachie,” Master Distiller, Billy Walker. The ninth iteration of our coveted decade-old batch release is no different, showcasing the richness and complexities of our honeyed spirit after maturation in the finest oak.
Guided by 50 years of experience and fuelled by his passion for wood management, Billy crafted Batch 9 with perfection in mind. A marriage of spirit from Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso Sherry casks, along with Rioja barriques and medium charred/medium toasted American Virgin Oak barrels, this mahogany malt sits proudly alongside its predecessors. Delivering classic Sherried notes of indulgent dark chocolate and dried fruits, coupled with sweet spices and red berries, this prized release is one to be savoured.
The nose is bursting with ripe red berries, hazelnuts and heather honey, with hints of orchard fruits, cinnamon spice and gingersnaps. The taste provides lashings of dark chocolate, honeycomb and caramelised demerara sugar, followed by notes of treacle, mocha and ginger, with plum and toffee on the finish.
