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.
