Glenallachie 8yo TBWC Bottling Note

An 8 year old indie bottling of Glenallachie's tasty Speyside single malt, bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company! The label shows a group of fish playing a rock show in a valley. Perhaps a reference to Glenallachie's name, which means 'Valley of the Rocky Place', or perhaps the Boutique-y bunch just thought it was a cool label and it's all just a big coincidence... Could be either, really.

Batch 2 is a release of 231 bottles.

‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains and bourbons from a variety of renowned distilleries as well as producing award-winning blended malts and blends. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic novel-style labels.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fruity esters lead, with a resonating note of fragrant malt. There’s a balance of sweet and savoury, with vanilla nougat, milky coffee and salted chocolate. A rush of complex nuttiness rises, with toasted almonds, peanut brittle and roasted chestnuts. Subtle smoke and a good whack of cinnamon are a persistent aroma.

Palate: The palate begins with almost resinous sherried elements, with notes of fizzy apple, honeyed oak, pear drops and candied pineapple being most prominent. With layers of toffee sauce, there are ripples of clove spice and waxy gingersnaps in the backdrop. Charred, meaty oak carries throughout, as the subtle smoke continues with a BBQ quality.

Finish: A fascinating finish brings raspberry vinegar and hazelnut butter. Lovely.

Overall: Oodles of personality while retaining some distillery character, this is a really very delicious Glenallachie. It shall make a fantastic Highball!
