Batch 6,which is limited to just 6,500 cases worldwide, is a combination of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry puncheons, Rioja barriques and virgin oak casks, all personally selected and blended by whisky industry veteran, Billy Walker. Each instalment of the decade-old expression emphasises Walker’s distinguished expertise in wood management, using only the finest quality casks expertly sourced from across the globe. A recently appointed member of Whisky Magazine’s prestigious Hall of Fame, Walker holds widespread acclaim within the industry for his hands-on approach and innovative maturation philosophy.
The bold Cask Strength spirit is overflowing with dark chocolate fondant, tangy orange, heather honey and warm frangipane tart.
Commenting on this latest batch release, Walker revealed: “When we acquired The GlenAllachie Distillery, we knew where we wanted to take the personality to the spirit. Concocting each batch of our 10-year-old really takes me back to that initial mission. I truly believe we are achieving what we set out to establish; a rich, bold, predominantly sherried spirit with interesting twists introduced by the wood.
“The delicious whisky we bottle as our 10-year-old Cask Strength really is testament to our wonderful team and the excellent wood we source. Like all previous batches, I know this batch won’t disappoint!”
