The GlenAllachie 14 Year Old Oloroso Wood FinishThe GlenAllachie has unveiled the latest addition to their Wood Finish Series, The GlenAllachie 14 Year Old Oloroso Wood Finish.

Initially matured in a combination of first and second fill American oak barrels, before being re-racked for over two years finishing in Oloroso puncheons which had been personally selected by Master Distiller, Billy Walker.

The whisky was monitored frequently by Billy to ensure the achievement of balance between wood and spirit influence, before being bottled.

GlenAllachie  say that the resulting whisky is bursting with rich sherry-matured indulgence; notes of sticky raisins, goey dark chocolate pudding, zesty orange and fresh espresso, all coupled with classic GlenAllachie honeyed charm.

Commenting on this exciting, limited-edition release, Billy said, "As soon as we acquired The GlenAllachie Distillery, I knew exactly what direction I wanted us to take the liquid in; a single malt known for its bold, indulgent sherried character.

"This UK bottling is no different, with all those archetypal Oloroso tones you would expect rich cocoa, cinnamon sticks, tangy orange and fresh ginger, all alongside a warming mocha depth. A sophisticated single malt that exemplifies the exciting direction that we have been taking The GlenAllachie in."

As we have come to expect from The GlenAllachie the new Oloroso Wood Finish expression has been bottled to maximise the flavour experience, at natural cask strength of 55.4%, non-chill filtered and with no added colouring

The GlenAllachie 14 Year Old Oloroso Wood Finish is a UK exclusive release and you will find it available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, Amazon and Master of Malt
