The GlenAllachie 11YO Grattamacco Wine Cask Finish
The GlenAllachie, headed up by award-winning Master Distiller, Billy Walker, has now released the inaugural bottlings within its new Wine Cask Series.
To craft The GlenAllachie Wine Series, they first expertly matured their spirit in American Oak Ex-Bourbon Barrels. Subsequently, the whisky underwent additional maturation for almost two years in Wine Barriques meticulously sourced by Master Distiller, Billy Walker, imparting a distinctive twist onto the GlenAllachie spirit.
This ruby blush malt, brimming with notes of toffee, stone fruits and orange peel, is crafted from wonderful medium toasted Super Tuscan Barriques. These certified Organic Barriques were carefully selected from the Grattamacco winery in the beautiful Bolgheri area of Tuscany in Italy, and then bottled once optimum balance of wood and spirit was achieved.
This expression is bottled unchilfiltered for flavour with no added colouring at 48% ABV.
