The GlenAllachie

10yo Chinquapin Virgin Oak

From Batch 2 of our Virgin Oak Series, this exceptional malt was first matured in American oak ex-Bourbon barrels before undergoing additional maturation in casks made of Chinquapin Oak (Quercus Muehlenbergii), which is sourced from the Northern Ozark region in Missouri for approximately 18 months. The casks were air dried for almost four years, then toasted to medium level before hosting the spirit.

The result is a complex, zesty malt bursting with runny honey, sweet cinnamon and orange peel.

Bottled at 48%, natural colour and non chill filtered.
