1 in stock
Distilled in 2014, matured in a 1st fill Madeira cask before being bottled in 2021.
Currently owned by Billy Walker, formerly of Glendronach, Glenallachie was rarely seen outside of independent bottlings, as it was prized by Chivas Bros. as a blending whisky. As with most distilleries built in the 1960’s, Glenallachie has always promoted a light and fruity character to the spirit, with a malty/honeyed background. This has been accented with full maturation in Madeira wine casks.
Nose: Dried muscat grapes and fresh Molasses. Flambéed and oven cooked honey soy chicken wings.
Palate: A cheese board of funky hard cheese and soft Brie with quince paste. Creamed Honey and Apricot butter chicken with wild malted rice.
Finish: Beeswax and soy candle
Founded by Fabio Rossi, the grandson of the Venetian edible oil and wine merchant Giuseppi Rossi, Wilson & Morgan have earned their place in whisky fame. Following the golden rule, “Trust your palate and your instincts”, Wilson & Morgan have had the opportunity to bottle some wildly rare casks from some of Scotlands more elusive distilleries, including Port Ellen, Brora and Macallan. Fabio Rossi was also instrumental in the use of Sicilian Marsala wine casks in finishing whisky. In 2002 he bottled a Longmorn, finished in Marsala casks, which he then presented to author Michael Jackson, who dubbed Fabio as “The Tailor of Whisky”.
