Single Malt Spirit, Sherry and virgin oak casks, and a dozen years in the Highlands equals magic.

The GlenAllachie Distillery sits on the Aberlour stream near where it empties into the River Spey. It was built there — less than a mile from the more famous Aberlour Distillery at the base of Ben Rinnes — in 1967 to produce Spirit for Scotch blends. It has been purchased, sold, mothballed, and opened again no fewer than four times since then. But in 2017, Billy Walker, Graham Stevenson, and Trisha Savage merged a few Whiskey brands and this under-utilized distiller gem to form The GlenAllachie Distillers Company Limited — now with a new core range of four Single Malt Whiskies in the Speyside style.

Twelve years is one of those Whisky-making sweet-spots. Single Malts just taste darn good when they’ve been left to rest for a dozen years. Why? Perhaps only the angels know for sure. What I can tell you is that The GlenAllachie 12 Year Old is their signature Single Malt Spirit aged twelve years — some of it in Pedro Ximénez casks, some of it in Oloroso casks, and the rest of it in virgin oak. The result is a big flavor profile leaning on vanilla and dried sultanas.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.

Daniel,
Advent 2020 #7 - slightly sweet with a smokey/peaty/spicy overtone. Bite is a bit harsh but not unbearable.
 
Alejandro
Alejandro,
Great aroma. Smooth and Sweet flavor, you can really taste the banana and vanilla.

brad,
Took about 1/3 of a bottle, but the more I drink this one, the more I appreciate it. Not too aggressive, but I get a lot of flavor through the nose (if that makes sense). On the palate, I get banana and also the almond, but more almond skin than the meat. Very complex. Has a sweetness on the finish that I like. Will definitely be buying another bottle in the future.

Creamy textured, very smooth, big sherry notes.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
I found this to have too bitter of a taste. I felt like it was more like jet fuel than liquor.
Jonathan
Jonathan,
My apologies, but I had a problem with my sample, and Flaviar has fixed it.
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, complex, Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a fruity life leads to a long & creamy death with hints of milk chocolate, honey & almonds.
 
Jason
Jason,
Too mellow for my palate. Solid back but the front is very light.

Rian,
I like the 10 year a little better cause it has no smoke and it’s a little stronger. Both are amazing. Ralfy put me on it
 
Marc
Marc,
An instant favorite for me, with fruity notes, vanilla and some spice from the barrel. There is some complexity here.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
A nice mix of almond, butterscotch, and vanilla on the palate. A bit of a burn on the finish but otherwise very enjoyable and a nice, light Scotch.
