Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 48%

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

The 'French Oak Finish' is initially matured in American Oak Ex-Bourbon Barrels & then finished in hogsheads made of French Oak (Quercus Robur) from the Haute-Garonne region close to the Pyrenees.

The fine-grained, consistent wood is air-dried for 15 months before hosting the Glenallachie spirit. The result is a rich bronze malt with a subtle, sweet and earthy taste.
