The GlenAllachie 13 YO Rioja 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 golden bronze malt obtains its nutty and honeyed character from carefully sourced Rioja Barriques of Spanish Oak, with a medium level of toasting. Rioja hails from Spain’s most renowned wine region and delivers sophisticated fruit notes. These Barriques were bottled when the influences of the distillery and wood reached complete harmony.
This expression is bottled unchilfiltered for flavour with no added colouring at 48% ABV.
