This single cask expression from GlenAllachie is part of the third batch of the UK exclusive Single Cask series. Distilled in August 2008 and matured for twelve years in a Rioja red wine barrel, before bottling at a natural cask strength of 56.6% abv in August 2020, this expression is hand-selected by Master Distiller, Billy Walker, and limited to just 313 individually numbered bottles.
Red berries and fresh grapes fill the nose along with some orange zest. The palate is rich and sweet, with dried fruits, barley sugar, and citrus in the form of oranges and grapefruit. A hint of aniseed lingers in the finish.
