Billy Walker 50th Anniversary
In celebration of Master Distiller Billy Walker’s half-century long career in the whisky industry, we are delighted to unveil the final bottling in The Past, Present and Future Series: The GlenAllachie 50th Anniversary Future Edition.
Not only is this 4-year-old single malt our first peated release, but also the first ever distillate produced under Billy Walker’s ownership of The GlenAllachie Distillery. Hinting at future endeavours, this expression has enjoyed a lengthy fermentation of 160 hours. The resulting ester-rich and fruity spirit was then matured in former Rye and Bourbon barrels, as well as some virgin oak casks. Made with mainland peat, this amber-hued spirit offers up a distinctively smoky yet sweet flavour profile bursting with sweet cinnamon apples alongside smouldering oak.
Presented at natural cask strength of 60.2%, with no added colour or chill filtration for maximum flavour.
Limited release of 10,000 bottles worldwide.
Bursting with honeycomb, dried fruits and hazelnut, with hints of smouldering oak, dark chocolate and warm cinnamon apples.
Lashings of cinnamon stewed pears, toasted almonds, heather honey and pipe tobacco, followed by smoked barley, vanilla toffee and orchard fruits.
