Ballot: The GlenAllachie 30 Year Old Batch 3
We have three bottles of this one for our ballot, opening at 12pm on the 17th of July and commencing at 12pm on the 18th July, after 24 hours. You must be a W Club member to enter.
Bottled at a cask strength of 48.9% abv, only the finest vintage stocks were used under the supervision of Master Blender Billy Walker who ensured optimal interaction between distillery and wood. The spirit was matured within a combination of eight hand-selected PX, Oloroso and virgin oak casks over its long slumber, before being decanted into only 2,400 bottles. Free from chill filtration.
Expect aromas of roasted almonds, honey and orchard fruits, with hints of worn leather and butterscotch. On the palate we find lashings of grape must, hazelnut and honeycomb, followed by citrus fruits, toffee brittle and hints of ginger spice. Notes of cinnamon and mocha unfurl on the finish.
Founded in 1963, The GlenAllachie is an independently owned Speyside distillery. The distillery was built at the bottom of Ben Rinnes and close to the Lour Burn, with the water from the river being used in the production of the liquid. The distillery boasts six washbacks, two wash stills, and two spirit stills. Known for their bold, rich and fruity expressions, The GlenAllachie's passion for whisky-making shines through in every release from the distillery.
