News: GlenAllachie 30YO batch 2


Glenallachie 30YO batch 2

The annual batch-release from GlenAllachie 30YO debuted last year.

Batch 2  is a limited release of just 2,000 bottles globally, each encased in a black rigid box with gold foil detailing.

The second instalment marries whiskies from eight casks picked by Billy Walker from stocks across 16 on-site warehouses at GlenAllachie.

To create this whisky, Walker selected 1990 and 1991 vintages matured in six former Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso Sherry hogsheads and puncheons, along with two 1990 American virgin oak barrels which were toasted and charred to a medium level.

The result of Walker’s blending is a whisky with rich Sherry-matured elegance and a flavour profile revealing layers of Seville orange, coffee beans, desiccated coconut and Medjool dates.

The whisky is bottled at its cask strength of 50.8% ABV, non chill-filtered and without added colour.
