Tasting Notes

Textbook Glenallachie and textbook Speyside which make this the perfect dram for the flagship expression. The notes are precise and well defined yet delicate and easy going with flavors of heather, rose hips, orange peels, cinnamon laced honey, butterscotch. The texture, as seems to be the case with all Glenallachies, is beautiful and the palate builds on the aromas picking up additional notes of banana, mocha, peanut brittle and baking spices.

Staff Pick Notes

This is such a well made, flavorful whisky at a very reasonable price. It is exactly the type that really gets me enthusiastic about single malts. Consider this.... 1. No artificial color added 2.

Be sure to spend some quality time with this little gem by letting it breathe. You'll be rewarded with a whole host of of captivating aromatics.
