The Glenallachie Virgin Oak Series, has first been matured in American oak barrels (Quercus Alba) Ex-Bourbon Barrels. To add a delicate and distinctive twist, the Whisky then underwent additional maturation for approximately 18 months in a specially selected Virgin Oak Casks

The subtle flavour differences in this series are led by a variety of influences: the Oak species, the local terrior and the period of natural air drying, along with the toasting, charring and cooping of the casks. Each of these reacts uniquely with The Glenallachie spirit, adding superb texture, depth and variety. 

Tasting Notes

The mahogany malt obtains its spicy, treacle flavours from hogsheads made of Spanish Oak (Quercus Robur) sourced from the regions of Galicia and Asturias, in particular the Cantabrian Mountains, which have a cooler climate and greater humidity. Before being filled, the wood is air-dried for around 18 months, opening up the oak for the Glenallachie spirit to extract its flavours 

Colour: Mahogany.

Nose: Lashings of orchard fruits, baking spices and sticky toffee pudding, with notes of brown sugar, glazed cherries and citrus. 

Taste: Bursting with chocolate, coffee and heather honey, followed by notes of pepper, ginger and molasses, with banana and sultanas on the finish
