Distilled by GlenAllachie and bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering, this bottling receives no dilution before bottling and was aged 10 years in a sherry cask.
Red berries, light anise, tobacco, pungent raisin bread and brown sugar. Rich, dessert forward
Medium mouthfeel, ethanol is well placed. Cocoa, brown butter, a hint of pepper and sulfur, then back to all dessert. Sweet cream, fig and stewed fruits. Hint of old musty tobacco.
Long finish, loaded with cocoa, fudge, cream, currant and raisin bread.
If I drank this blind, I wouldn’t expect this to be only 10 years old. This shows up many older malts and puts GlenAllachie on a ‘do not ignore’ list for me going forward.
