One of three mid-2019 release from the GlenAllachie Distillery, each on utilising a different type of cask finish. This particular expression is an 8 year old single malt which initially aged in American oak barrels before it interestingly enjoyed a finishing period in small quarter casks that previously held Koval Rye. Koval is an excellent distillery in Chicago, and its rye packs heaped helpings of maple syrup and earthy spices, so expect some of that to come through in GlenAllachie's great whisky.
Nose: Nutmeg and cinnamon offer up warming, oaky elements, while honeycomb and cooked apple give it some balancing sweetness.
Palate: Melted chocolate and runny honey, black peppercorn, orange, Rice Krispie cakes.
Finish: Maple syrup and a hint of sawdust.
