Glenallachie Cuvee Cask Finish 48% 70cl
Purchased from Chivas in 2017 by whisky blender and entrepreneur Billy Walker - who had previously revitalised Benriach and Glendronach - Glenallachie has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity since it's relaunch in 2018, mainly thanks to a core selection which have been consistently excellent thanks to a dedicated focus on wood quality for maturation - care and attention is given to every cask in their 16 warehouses both before and after being filled with spirit.
Introduced in January 2023, 9 year old spirit initially spent time in ex-Bourbon casks before a time spent finishing in a combination of four different ex-red wine barrels from the Languedoc, Recioto Della Valpolicella and two undisclosed Premier Cru Classes.
Bottled at 48%, the danger here is that the wine influences become too overpowering - but as usual, Billy and his team nail it. It's actually little and more refined than the core age range bottlings that are so full of fruitcake notes. Instead we see almost floral notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom before dark chocolate and black cherry kicks in, with a thread of tannins arriving to lengthen the finish.
If you like red wine and whisky, this is absolutely a winner for you, and yet again evidences the skill Billy has in marrying casks and flavour profiles.
