Review of The GlenAllachie 11 Year Old Grattamacco Wine Cask Finish.

The GlenAllachie 11 Year Old Grattamacco Wine Cask FinishThe GlenAllachie 11 Year Old Grattamacco Wine Cask Finish is one of three inaugural limited edition whiskies in the new GlenAllachie Wine Cask series.

The creative work of The GlenAllachie Master Distiller Billy Walker, it was inititially matured in American Oak ex-bourbon barrels, the whisky was then finished for almost another two years in certified Organic Super Tuscan barriques made of French oak from the Grattamacco winery in the Bolgheri area of Tuscany, Italy.

The GlenAllachie 11 Year Old Grattamacco Wine Cask Finish is bottled at 48% ABV, non chill filtered and naturally coloured and has a RRP of 58.99.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Lovely enticingly sweet sugars, honey and almond combine to gives the toffee'd nose a marzipan edge, this is interlaced with orange, nectarine and a little ripe raisins.

Taste: As delicious as the nose hinted it would be, a smooth sugar sweet delivery with vanilla toffee, honey, nectarine, orange and now a touch of apricot adding to the fruitiness

Finish: The sugars carry the toffee, honeyed fruity mix long into the finish. A little lovely late oak spice.

Comment: This naturally coloured dram with a slight pinkish/rose red wine colour look to it, ignore the picture, is simply a delicious moreish Glenallachie, with the sugars giving the fruit a wee bit of a candied edge after a couple of mouthfuls.

SMW Score 88/100
