This Glenallachie 10 Years Old is from the second batch of the Virgin Oak Series . For this series the distillery have first matured the whisky in American Oak (Quercus Alba) Ex-Bourbon Barrels. The whisky then undergoes additional maturation for approximately 18 months in specially selected Virgin Chinquapin Oak and is a limited release. This exceptional malt gets its complex, zesty flavours from casks made of Chinquapin Oak (Quercus Muehlenbergii) sourced from the Northern Ozark region in Missouri. Chinquapin is a sub species of Quercus Alba and delivers spicy flavours and aromas. Air dried for almost four years, then toasted to medium level these casks give us the perfect balance of spirit and wood character.
