Batch 8 joins the growing line of celebrated GlenAllachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength whiskies. For this edition, master distiller Billy Walker has chosen whisky aged in oloroso and Pedro Ximénez puncheons, and virgin oak and rioja casks. Bottled at a hefty 57.2% ABV with no added colour, and non-chill filtered, this Speysider is brimming with dried fruit character and nuttiness.
Nose: Nutty, sherry character, with dark, caramelised sugar, allspice, and dried raisins.
Palate: Warm gingerbread, cacao nibs, and cinder toffee, with a touch of liquorice.
Finish: Roasted spices, with drizzles of treacle.
