GlenAllachie Wood Collection Sherry cask-finishes

3 nye aftapninger fra GlenAllachie der alle er afsluttet på sherry fade. Der kommer ialt 6 forskellige sherry finishes i løbet af i år.
De tre aftapninger er alle 9 år gamle og har ligget på henholdsvis Fino Cask Finish, Amontillado Cask Finish og Oloroso Cask Finish.

Alle tre aftapninger er aftappet ved 48% og prissat til £60,00

Master Distiller og Blender Billy Walker siger om aftapningerne:
“This wood management project has been one of the most enjoyable in a long time. We’re exploring the influence of different Sherry cask types with whisky of exactly the same age and cask history. The lengthy secondary ageing period brings the incredible nuances and variations delivered by the Sherry maturations to the forefront.

“With the ‘Sherry Series’, we’re trying to achieve something special that would create intrigue and provoke discussion. Integrating the personality of six Sherry styles with The GlenAllachie’s heather honey DNA delivered a spectrum of aromatic and flavour characteristics that has exceeded our expectations. The first three expressions are truly exceptional – we can’t wait to share part two in a few months.”
