This Glenallachie 12 Years Old is part of the new 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
Oak Casks. This 12 Years Old has been finished in Virgin French Oak and is a limited release of 6600 bottles. This rich 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.
