This is Batch 3 of 10 year old cask strength single malt by The GlenAllachie distillery. A distillery known to produce malt whisky for blends under Pernod Ricard and Chivas Brothers ownership. Chivas sold the distillery in 2017 to The GlenAllachie Distillers Company (Billy Walker, Trisha Savage and Graham Stevenson).
Under its new ownership GlenAllachie has started a mission to offer quality whisky for enthusiasts under independently owned distillery. Quality in this case means whiskies bottled at 46% alcohol by volume level or above, with natural color and without chill filtering.
It’s easy to believe in their mission when Walker is in the team. He helped GlenDronach and BenRiach distilleries reach good reputations. Especially GlenDronach has received lots of appreciation by whisky aficionados. In fact, I like both of those distilleries.
Batch 3 was released in 2019 as 3500 bottle edition. Bottled at cask strength (58,2%) and non-chill filtered. It’s been aged in first fill Oloroso and PX sherry casks.
