Description

Glenallachie 12 Year Old 70cl

Indulge in the rich and authentic taste of Glenallachie 12 Year Old, a single malt Scotch whisky that is a true testament to the art of whiskey-making. Crafted under the expert guidance of Billy Walker, this expression is one of the first releases from the new regime. With a nose that is reminiscent of sherry, it features tantalizing notes of dehydrated banana, almonds, and Cola gummy bottles. On the palate, you'll experience a spicy blend of ginger, cinnamon, and grains that culminates in a luscious chocolate finish with a delightful hint of orange. Every sip of Glenallachie 12 Year Old is a journey through the very essence of Scottish whisky-making tradition.

Glenallachie distillery

Glenallachie distillery was built in 1967 by Mackinlays, a subsidiary of Scottish and Newcastle breweries. Mackinlays saw the need to build a distillery given the demand for Scotch whisky from the American market. During the difficult 1980's Invergordon distillers acquired Mackinlays. They didn't hold it for long, four years after they took over, they sold the mothballed distillery to a subsidiary of Pernod-Ricard: Campbell Distillers.

The whisky from this distillery is rarely seen as as a single malt. Independent bottlings are few. In 2017 Glenallachie was sold to legendary distiller Billy Walker. A new range of single malts was launched in 2018.
