Whisky Review: GlenAllachie 2008 Signatory 12 Year

GlenAllachie 2008 Signatory 12 Year / 62.9%

Tasted neat, then with bottled water

This GlenAllachie was distilled on 06/05/2008, spent twelve years in a first-fill Sherry cask #900366 until it was bottled on 13/01/2021. An absolutely massive 626 bottles from this single cask!

  • Color: treacle (2.0)
  • Nose: chocolate malt, alcohol, pine sap, lemon rind, caramel, and fudge
  • Taste: raisins, sherry, leather, cola, syrup, and egg-tarts
  • Finish: very long and delicious, sweet brownies and vanilla

This cola-coloured GlenAllachie is definitely a wet PX cask; it will absolutely appeal to sherry-bomb lovers! It’s somewhat one-dimensional, but these kind of heavily done casks are the core ingredients that Billy Walker loves to use to rejuvenate a reborn distillery’s core expressions.

Rating: 6/10
