2005 Glenallachie Single Cask #901026 Sherry Butt 15 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Although there were just 566 bottles produced, the Australian allocation of cask #901026 is (slightly) more generous than expected. Happily, it's also the most affordable offering in the current collection. Billy Walker comments, this particular butt has bestowed notes of indulgent mocha, tangy orange, gingerbread and glazed figs. Beyond being a sherried malt, the exact cask type is not specified, however, the offical tasting notes suggest Oloroso. 63.7% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
Notes from the producers... COLOUR: Light Mahogany. NOSE: Waves of vanilla, molasses and mocha, with almonds, nutmeg and cinnamon in the background. TASTE: Dark chocolate, treacle and figs with nutmeg and ginger, fusing with heather honey and orange zest.
