This Glenallachie 10 Years Old is part of the second batch of 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 French Oak Casks and is a limited release. This golden bronze malt obtains its silky tannins, sweet spice and fruit notes from hogsheads made of French Oak (Quercus Robur) sourced from the Haute-Garonne region close to the Pyrenees. The fine-grained, consistent wood is air dried for 15 months before hosting the GlenAllachie spirit. The result is a delectable, subtle and earthy Single Malt.
