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 'Spanish Oak Finish' is initially matured in American Oak Ex-Bourbon Barrels & then finished in hogsheads made of Spanish Oak (Quercus Robur) sourced from the Cantabrian Mountains in Northern Spain.

Before being filled, the wood is air-dried for around 18 months, opening up the oak for the Glenallachie spirit to extract its flavours. This process has produced a whisky with waves of heather honey, treacle, coconut and orange zest.
