GlenAllachie 10 Year Old Virgin Oak "Chinquapin" Single Malt Scotch Whisky
48% ABV, 700 ml, "From The Valley of the Rocks"
The GlenAllachie Virgin Oak Series brings us three new expressions to delight and impress the palates of the US consumer. A 10 year old Chinquapin Virgin Oak, 10 yo French Virgin Oak, and 15 yo Scottish Virgin Oak expression comprise this Series.
The whisky was first matured in American Oak (Quercus Alba) ex-Bourbon Barrels. To add a delicate and distinctive twist, the whisky then underwent additional maturation for approximately 18 months in specially selected Virgin Oak Casks. The subtle flavor differences in this series are led by a variety of influences: the Oak species, the local terroir, and the period of natural air drying; along with the toasting, charring and coopering of the casks. Each of these reacts uniquely with the GlenAllachie spirit, adding superb texture, depth and variety.
