GlenAllachie 16YO 50th Anniversary Present Edition (700ml)
No Reserve: Please note displaying this reserve is at the discretion of the seller.
In celebration of Master Distiller Billy Walker’s half-century long career in the whisky industry, we are delighted to unveil the second in The Past, Present and Future Series: The GlenAllachie 50th Anniversary Present Edition.
This rare expression illustrates Billy’s present, where he is avidly implementing an incredibly innovative cask management policy. After initial maturation in PX and Oloroso Sherry casks, the spirit enjoyed secondary aging in specially selected Mizunara casks, a very scarce and expensive species of Japanese oak. Notoriously difficult to cooper and prone to leaking, these casks are rarely used for whisky maturation. Although posing difficulties, their porous nature lends to the spirit sinking deeper into the wood, imparting complex notes of sandalwood and cinnamon.
Presented at 48%, with no added colour or chill filtration for maximum flavour.
