Glenallachie 2005-2019 | 13 Year Old | Connoisseurs Choice Cask Strength
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 60.4%
A pre Billy Walker Glenallachie from the time when the majority of spirit was used in blends by the then owners Chivas Brothers. It would be interesting to compare this bottle in a few years to a Billy Walker distillery bottling...
Batch 19/055 is a 2005 Glenallachie bottled in 2019 by G&M for their new and improved Connoisseur's Choice range. G&M have also spiced things up and bottled this one at a natural strength instead of the usual 46%. It was matured for 13 years in a refill American hogshead that yielded 333 bottles.
The Connoisseurs Choice series is an iconic series that started in 1968. To date, around 100 distilleries have been featured as part of the range, with over 2,000 individual bottlings. Each label on each bottle states all the information about the whisky inside such as cask type, strength, region, vintage and tasting notes.
Nose: Intense; sweet vanilla followed by caramelised pineapple and ripe banana.
Palate: White pepper gives way to fresh pear, cocoa powder and toasted oak.
Finish: Undertones on aniseed linger.
