Allt-a-Bhaine 23 years old
Allt-a-Bhaine 23 years old by Gleann Mor offers a very natural nose of barley and sweet grains and hay. Some nice stone fruits in the background. Light oak influence with a little mint and juniper. Also a hint of chalk or dust. Mouth: oily and sweet. Quite spicy and a little hot - something of a fruit liqueur. Slightly raw and spirity, even with water. The finish is rather long and neutral, with hints of liquorice and pepper.
Allt-a-Bhaine Distillery Profile
Allt-A-Bhainne is located in the Southern part of the central Speyside region, south of Dufftown and just north of the origin of one of the streams that feed the river Lossie. It was the fourth malt distillery built by Seagram's
and its main purpose was supplying malt whisky for the Chivas Regal blends. The single pair of stills was doubled in 1989. The distillery seems to be one of the most efficient distilleries in Scotland. The name Allt A Bhainne
(sometimes spelled as Allt-A-Bhainne or Allt A' Bhainne) has Gaelic roots and means something like 'Burn of Milk'
