Billy Walker fra GlenAllachie Distillery har sammensat en ny blend med navnet White Heather. Der er tale om en 21 års aftapning lavet som small batch blend.
Denne blend indeholder single malt og grain whiskies fra highlands, islay og speyside. De første 18 år har det ligget på en kombination af  first-fill american barrels, sherry butts og second-fill barrels og hogsheads.
Herefter er indholdet blended og flyttet over på pedro ximénez puncheons, oloroso puncheons og appalachian virgin oak casks.

Billy Walker siger: "This whisky is particularly close to my heart. Creating this blend took me back almost 50 years to when I started my career at Hiram Walker. It was there I started to learn the art of blending and the specialist skills required to select whiskies that when interfaced with each other ultimately amplified the overall flavour experience.


With White Heather, I poured everything I’ve learned on my whisky journey into crafting a truly memorable small batch aged blend that sits proudly alongside even the very best single malts. I wanted to honour the original blend whilst recreating it in a much more premium form with exceptional wood.  It’s a fine balance bringing together the character of such different whiskies and cask types, but I’m incredibly proud to now unveil the end result."
