The Glenallachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 1 Review


23rd August 2018
Review of the new Glenallachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 1.

The Glenallachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 1The Glenallachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 1 is the entry level expression in the newly launched Glenallachie core range.

It is said to showcase a taste of The Glenallachie Distillery, bottled straight from the cask at natural strength.

The 57.1% whisky was matured in a combination of American oak, Pedro Ximinez, Oloroso and virgin oak casks, there will be 2000 cases of this first batch available worldwide.

The Glenallachie 10 Year Old Cask Strength Batch 1 is presented in a 70cl bottle and is now available with a RRP 58.00

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Sweet honey and vanilla toffee infused with a touch of orange, a hint of cinnamon and oak spice hiding in the background.

Taste: A honey coated mix of apple, orange and raisin leads, followed closely by some vanilla toffee, cocoa and a little vibrant fresh oak spice.

Finish: The honeyed sweetness gives way to some dark chocolate and oak, it then bitters out rather quickly. Mildly drying.

Comment: For all its strength it bitters out quickly but it is is a joy on the nose and in the mouth while it lasts. I would love to see them turning up the sherry cask contribution on the next batch, still a fantastic introduction to the Glenallachie. On my first taste of this I had scored it 84 but I have now been back to it a few times, in fact I have almost got through a whole bottle in the past month and have upped my rating a little.

SMW Score 87/100
