Chris tasted a bevy of age-stated GlenAllachie expressions again in 2020 when the model had simply begun popping up on U.S. liquor retailer cabinets. The ten yr previous, the one cask power expression within the core vary, wasn’t precisely the star of the present on the time, however six iterations later, we’ve been given the prospect to pattern a brand new installment. This 10-year single malt has been aged in a mixture of Pedro Ximenez and oloroso puncheons with a small quantity of virgin oak and Rioja casks thrown in for good measure. Let’s give it a go, lets?

The aroma is probably not as daring as the primary launch, however there’s nonetheless a wholesome quantity of alcohol to accompany notes of wealthy, silky nougatine, baking cocoa, and candy porridge. The cask getting old comes by extra prominently with currants, black cherry, and darkish berries including significantly extra complexity than our first expertise. On the palate, this whisky is surprisingly approachable for cask power, providing up a well-balanced mix of candy darkish fruit and earthy malts. The fruit part runs the gamut right here from vivid, juicy plums to raisins and extra sultry compotes and pie filling. Regardless of that complexity it’s not a dominating factor of the expertise, mingling properly with honeyed malts, barrel char, and a few baking spice, all coalescing right into a remarkably mild and warming end to create an altogether pleasurable and interesting whisky.

113.6 proof.
