Glenallachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) - Batch 2

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$145.00 Bottle
  • ABV 54.8%

Billy Walker's second release also comes matured in a combination of PX & oloroso sherry, first-fill bourbon and virgin oak casks.

Tasting note: Brilliant gold. Thick, oily, fruity aromas; lots of oak input; vanilla and gobstopper relieved by a touch of orange zest. One of the most generous Speysiders going around, packed with flavour and flirting with sweetness: Juicy dried fruits and rich malt are followed by a touch of Turkish Delight (or lavender?) and cocoa in the aftertaste. Easily accessible at natural strength, it's a great follow up to batch one which sold out in a matter of days. 54.8% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.

Other reviews... This was ‘matured’ in a combination of PX, oloroso, virgin oak, and bourbon. Some finishing must have been done (I suppose) but it’s not fully PX-ed, so there’s hope. Colour: gold. Nose: nice and funny, pretty singular, and indeed I do find some tarragon again, sage, perhaps sorrel? A feeling of green curry as well (possibly from the virgin oak), then more regular touches of vanilla, dried apricots, pine honey (honeydew), pastries, some musty grated coconut from an old box, and a few rose petals (from the PX?) It’s clearly ‘a recipe’ and there has been some kind of kitchen work – that's what I feel at least, but that worked so far. With water: a load of vanilla now. We may have woken up some American oak. Mouth (with water): much work done with the woods. Spices, caraway, ginger, fruit drops, cloves, sweet peppers, dried banana... What would the Michelin Guide say? With water: cinchona, touches of lavender sweets, tonic water, ginger, vanilla, some strong green tea. A similar feeling. Finish: rather long, fruity and gritty. Bubblegum. Comments: a funny drop, unlike any other and not quite very ‘Scottish’, whatever that means. Very hard to score, but yeah, it brings some fun. 83 points - Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com
