Glenallachie 7 year old Hungarian Virgin Oak
From Batch 3 of the distillery's Virgin Oak Series, they are incredibly proud to present an innovative single malt which enjoyed secondary aging in Hungarian oak. Master Distiller Billy Walker’s search for the unusual led him to the mountains of northeast Hungary to the Zemplén forest. Its rocky volcanic soil, along with its colder climate and higher altitude, means that the trees in this region grow very slowly, giving the oak a tight grain – a desirable trait for aging spirit.
Expect flafours of heather honey and cinnamon, followed by chocolate, lemon drops and caramelised brown sugar.
