Released in 2020 this Glenallachie 12-year-old is part of the distilleries new Virgin Oak Series.

The 'Chinquapin Oak Finish' is initially matured in American Oak Ex-Bourbon Barrels & then finished in selected casks from the Northern Ozark region in Missouri.

Chinquapin is a subspecies of Quercus Alba and delivers spicy flavours and aromas.

Air-dried for almost four years, then toasted to medium level, the casks create complex, zesty flavours with notes of heather honey, barley sugar, toasted biscuit and orange zest, followed by cinnamon, rosehips and liquorice.
