GlenAllachie Wood Collection Sherry cask-finishes

3 nye aftapninger fra GlenAllachie der alle er afsluttet på sherry fade. Der kommer ialt 6 forskellige sherry finishes i løbet af i år.
De tre aftapninger er alle 9 år gamle og har ligget på henholdsvis Fino Cask Finish, Amontillado Cask Finish og Oloroso Cask Finish.

Alle tre aftapninger er aftappet ved 48% og prissat til £60,00

Master Distiller og Blender Billy Walker siger om aftapningerne:
“This wood management project has been one of the most enjoyable in a long time. We’re exploring the influence of different Sherry cask types with whisky of exactly the same age and cask history. The lengthy secondary ageing period brings the incredible nuances and variations delivered by the Sherry maturations to the forefront.

“With the ‘Sherry Series’, we’re trying to achieve something special that would create intrigue and provoke discussion. Integrating the personality of six Sherry styles with The GlenAllachie’s heather honey DNA delivered a spectrum of aromatic and flavour characteristics that has exceeded our expectations. The first three expressions are truly exceptional – we can’t wait to share part two in a few months.”

GlanAllachie er kommet med 2 nye aftapninger i Wood Collection serien.

Der er tale om en 12 års Sauternes Wine Cask Finish og en 10 års Ruby Port Cask Finish.
Sauternes er frigivet til UK og Ruby Port til Europa.

Begge har ligget på bourbon barrels inden det er flyttet over på andre fadtyper.

The 12-year-old UK exclusive enjoyed a secondary ageing period in hogsheads that previously hosted Sauternes: a white dessert wine from the famous French region of Bordeaux. The resulting whisky delivers “elegant layers of toffee sauce, vanilla ice cream, coconut shavings and peach torte.”

For Europe, the 10-year-old single malt spent additional time in hogshead casks that formerly held vibrant Ruby Port from Portugal’s celebrated Douro Valley. The rich wood has “bestowed a rose gold hue and flavours of forest fruits, ginger biscuits, honeycomb and mocha.”The GlenAllachie 12-year-old Sauternes Wine Cask Finish, UK Exclusive =11.0pt– 48% ABV
  • Nose: Honeycomb, butterscotch and toffee sauce, with crystalised ginger, mocha and peaches.
