We're in for a treat because Billy Walker, the Icons of Whisky 2020 Master Distiller of the Year, is renowned for over delivering to the whisky lover and we've brought his long-awaited and hugely anticipated GlenAllachie 15 Year Old to Australia, exclusive to the Club!
An essay in sherry matured whisky and fresh from taking Double Gold at the San Francisco World Sprits Competition, the brand new GlenAllachie 15 Year Old has been somewhat of a pet project for him.
“I’ve been working on our 15 Year Old since we acquired GlenAllachie back in October 2017. In that time, I’ve been intimately following the development of the various casks and I believe the 15 Year Old is the perfect balance of distillery and cask influence. This whisky is rich in sweet spices, raisins and butterscotch, with waves of banana, orange peel and dark chocolate. The extra years the whisky spent maturing in the sherry wood casks extends the flavour further. It absolutely represents the DNA and personality of GlenAllachie now and going forward.”
As good as it gets from the man who brought us GlenDronach, this is unquestionably another Billy Walker masterclass.
