GLENALLACHIE 10YO SAUTERNES CASK 3727 58.9% 700ML
Glenallachie Distillery pronounced "Glen-alec-y" is located in the heart of Speyside near Aberlour. It was built in 1967 mainly to contribute to the MacKinlay blends.
Specifically selected by Billy Walker this Sauternes barrel single cask Scotch whisky promises to be a collectors and connoisseurs delight. Cask #3727 yielded only 303 bottles.
As with all GlenAllachie single cask releases, the interaction between wood and spirit is one to be marvelled. Here the classic sweet wine from Sauternes in the French Bordeaux region, is produced using the noble rot and results in a luscious and delectable wine. These barriques are sourced from a Premier Cru winery and deliver a rich, honeyed sweetness with an explosion of fruit.
