The GlenAllachie 12 Year Old Chinquapin Virgin Oak

12 Year Old

Chinquapin Virgin Oak

This exceptional malt gets its complex, zesty flavours from casks made of Chinquapin Oak (Quercus Muehlenbergii) sourced from the Northern Ozark region in Missouri. Chinquapin is a sub species of Quercus Alba and delivers spicy flavours and aromas. Air dried for almost four years, then toasted to medium level these casks give us the perfect balance of spirit and wood character.
