Guided by the experienced hands of whisky maestro Billy Walker, who celebrated his 50th anniversary in the industry last year, The GlenAllachie has garnered immense global acclaim for its previous releases in this vintage series, captivating whisky enthusiasts worldwide.

Limited to a mere 2,400 bottles on a global scale, Batch 3, with a UK RRSP of £670, is elegantly presented in a luxurious royal blue box adorned with gold foil accents and embraced by soft suedette cushioning.

Drawing upon the finest casks, the third instalment in this series brings together Speyside single malt from the early 1990s, aged in a harmonious fusion of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso Sherry hogsheads, complemented by the influence of carefully selected American virgin oak casks.

Renowned for its unwavering commitment to quality, The GlenAllachie's extensive inventory of over 50,000 casks housed within 16 on-site warehouses provided an exceptional range of whiskies to choose from. Expert blender Billy Walker handpicked each cask, ensuring only the finest and most exceptional whiskies were chosen for this exquisite release.

Renowned as the epitome of indulgence shaped by Sherry maturation, this scarce Scotch whisky is said to exude a flavour profile that delights the senses with opulent notes of velvety espresso, luscious hazelnuts draped in chocolate, subtle hints of grated ginger, and the comforting essence of stewed plums.

Masterfully crafted by the skilled hands of Walker, this singular expression of single malt whisky embodies a distinct elegance. Bottled at its natural cask strength of 48.9% ABV, it remains unadulterated by artificial colouring and unchill filtered, allowing its authentic character to shine through.

Contemplating the release of this super-premium whisky, Walker reflects: "The GlenAllachie team and I are thrilled to bring the next batch of our oldest core expression to market. Bottlings of this age and quality undeniably demonstrate the reward for patience and perseverance in whisky making.

"Our heather honey-forward distillate stands up well to ageing in rich Sherry wood, and the casks selected for this bottling certainly showcase this incredible union. Expect a refined whisky that exudes notes of rich cocoa, orange zest, honeycomb and cinnamon – a true delight."
