One of three whiskies released by GlenAllachie for its Virgin Oak Series in late 2020, this one having enjoyed a finishing period in Spanish oak casks. Specifically, the oak was sourced from the Cantabrian Mountains in Northern Spain, and was air dried for around 18 months before the casks were filled. The whisky was bottled up at 12 years of age, with an ABV of 48%.
Nose: Coconut ice, honeycomb and fresh orange, shortly followed by some ginger warmth.
Palate: Ginger continues, now with cinnamon and white pepper in tow. Spicy notes are mellowed by waves of chocolate and milky coffee.
Finish: Nutmeg and coffee again on the finish.
