GlenAllachie Past, Present and Future Series II

Den næste aftapning i serie Past, Present and Future er nu kommet. De tre aftapninger i denne serie, kommer i forbindelse med Billy Walkers 50år i industrien. Læs mere om den første aftapning i serien her.
Denne 16 årig aftapning er afsluttet på mizunara virgin oak cask, der er toasted i medium level og charring. Det er første gang Billy Walker benytter sig af denne type af egesort.

Billy Walker siger om aftapningen:
“As a Master Distiller, I’m regularly asked what proportion of the flavour profile of a whisky I attribute to the wood, to which I answer at least 70 per cent. As a chemist, I find supervising the flavour development of our whisky as it interfaces with interesting cask types truly fascinating. One thing I’ve absolutely learnt in the last 50 years is that there are no short cuts to achieving quality.

“I’m incredibly proud to release my first ever Mizunara virgin oak finished whisky; a cask type that has of course been on my radar to experiment with, not deterred by its undeniable challenges! I was confident that it would perfectly complement the bold nature of The GlenAllachie, and we’re delighted with the outcome. A very proud moment for a special personal milestone.”

Der er aftappet 2900 flasker af denne ved 48%
