Virgin Oak Series, this golden bronze malt was first matured in American oak ex-Bourbon barrels before undergoing additional maturation in hogsheads made of French oak (Quercus Robur), sourced from the Haute-Garonne region, for approximately 18 months. The fine-grained wood was air dried for 15 months before hosting the GlenAllachie spirit.
The secondary maturation period has added silky tannins, sweet spices and fruit notes to this delectable, earthy single malt.
Color: Golden Bronze.
Nose: Waves of orange peel, heather honey and soft spice, followed by caramel, orchard fruits and mocha.
Taste: Layers of heather honey, mocha and brittle toffee, with grapefruit, cinnamon, earthy tannins and notes of ginger on the finish.
