Glenallachie 21 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) - Batch 1
This is Billy Walker's latest very limited release - in fact, it was originally intended for the bar trade only in Australia. There's even less of it to go around than the World Whisky of the Year. Created from 1997 and 1998 distillates, Walker selected five casks, a combination of Pedro Ximénez Puncheons and Hogsheads. Largely sold out in the UK where some retailers are charging GBP 500 or more, 1600 bottles were available worldwide.
