    Description

    For The GlenAllachie Wine Cask Series, Master Blender Billy Walker initiated the process by expertly maturing their spirit in the finest American oak ex-Bourbon barrels before transferring the whisky into carefully chosen European wine barriques for a secondary aging phase. Adding a unique twist to this release, Billy blended four exceptional wine cask finishes to create a distinctive expression: The Cuvée Wine Cask Finish.

    Drawing from the wine industry, the term 'Cuvée' typically refers to a blend that incorporates multiple grape varieties. Similarly, their 9-year-old Cuvée represents a harmonious marriage of spirits from several esteemed wine casks sourced from renowned regions like Bordeaux, Languedoc, and Valpolicella.

    Billy meticulously monitored the character development of each individual barrique, skillfully blending the whiskies together. The resulting golden liquid reveals notes of elegant stone fruits, hints of toasted almonds, and a lively touch of zesty orange peel on the palate.

    This limited expression is bottled without chill-filtration to preserve its flavor and retains its natural color, boasting an ABV of 48%. Their commitment to authenticity and delivering exceptional whisky shines through in this creation.

    Tasting Note by GlenAllachie:
    Nose: Bursting with orange blossom, espresso, maraschino cherries and honeysuckle, with hints of candied stone fruits, hazelnuts, lavender and cinnamon.
    Palate: Waves of dark chocolate, red currants and burnt coffee beans, followed by crystalised almonds, blackberries and orange zest, with ginger and liquorice on the finish.

    Have tried a range of whiskies that have red or white wine or port finishes and its often difficult to discern much of a finish. This Glenallachie cuvée (name is a bit pretentious) is the exception. Had a glorious claret aroma on opening and several weeks later it is still there. There is a definite red wine flavour on the palate but it is so well balance it doesn't detract from the whisky or the whisky from it. Biggest problem with this is that it is so easily drinkable undiluted and i have been conscious to force myself to drink other whiskies so that i will not run out too quickly. I need to stock up on this -only question is how many bottles?

    Long meeting with the wine casks
    Of anything I've tried with a wine finish this has had the best meeting with red stuff. On first opening the wine aroma dominates. It is dangerously drinkable. Quite similar in flavour to Spey Tenné which is a port finish. Cask strength version would be very interesting but 48% is more than OK. Haven't been tempted to add water yet
