The GlenAllachie Single Casks
2012 Cask #806890 Peated Bourbon Barrel
We’re delighted to present our sixth batch of UK exclusive single casks, each demonstrating the unique interaction of the wood, spirit, and subsequent flavour extension. Billy Walker is leading the way with innovation and is passionate about experimenting with unorthodox cask types, one of which being a Peated Bourbon barrel (2012 #806890).
After initial aging in a fresh ex-Bourbon cask before being re-racked into a first-fill sherry hogshead, the spirit was then transfered into an American oak cask which had previously held a heavily peated spirit distilled at GlenAllachie. The result is a deliciously smoky spirit balanced by our classic heather honeyed character.
Bottled at 60.1%, unchilfiltered and natural colour, only 254 bottles are available at specialist retailers throughout the UK.
Layers of smoked pine nuts, ginger and cigar box, followed by heather honey, soft spice and burnt brown sugar.
Lashings of butterscotch, ginger and toasted almonds, with delicate notes of caramelised sugar, dark chocolate and black pepper.
