Stock image. Distilled by Glenallachie in 2008, this single cask was matured in a Ruby Port Pipe and bottled by Glenallachie for Spec's in Texas in 2020. It bears a 12yr age statement, was bottled with no coloring or filtering and comes released at cask strength, yielding 387 bottles.
Jammy, loaded with brown sugar, toffee, cocoa, Luxardo cherry, vanilla bean.
Medium mouthfeel, a bit hot. Jammy cherry, pepper, concord grape and light tobacco. Big sulfur on the back palate. Parks in my nasal passage.
Long spicy finish with apple strudel, cherry and some light plum.
Good, but not exceptional. The heat is most noticeable, as is the sulfur. Enjoyable and drinkable, but not exceptional.
