GlenAllachie 11 Year Old Marsala Wood Finish (70cl, 48%)

GlenAllachie 11 Year Old Marsala Wood Finish (70cl, 48%)

Exclusively bottled for the UK, this complex bronze malt enjoyed initial ageing for over 8 years in premium American oak ex-Bourbon barrels. Adding further richness and flavour, the whisky then enjoyed a finishing period of approximately 42 months in specially selected Marsala casks.

A fortified wine produced on the Italian island of Sicily, these Marsala barrels have created a well-rounded palate bursting with sweet fruits and smooth caramel, leading to a velvety mouthfeel and long finish.

Bottled at 48%, with no added colouring and without chill-filtration.

Prior to 2017, when the distillery was acquired by master distiller Billy Walker, GlenAllachie whisky was most commonly found in blends. 

Glenallachie distillery was built by Mackinlays in 1967 to meet the demands of its blends following an upturn in sales in the US. Built as a small compact distillery, GlenAllachie was the fourth distillery designed by William Delme-Evans. The complete whisky making process was gravity fed and combined with unusual horizontal condensers it was a triumph of engineering and design. In its short history it has passed through the hands of Invergordon Distillers and Pernod-Ricard. During this period the focus was always on the provision of blends, with over 20 years between the first Mackinlay’s distillery bottlings of its single malt and the next official release from Chivas Brothers in 2005. Now in the hands of Billy Walker, Glenallachie is finally being pushed as an increasingly popular single malt brand since 2017.
