Meikle Tòir Original

The Meikle Tòir range (meaning ‘big pursuit’ and pronounced mee-kuhl tor) comprises peated whisky made at GlenAllachie Distillery with guidance from legendary master distiller Billy Walker. The Original is a single malt made with mainland peat from St. Fergus, a sweeter, grassier variety than found on the coast. The barley was peated to 35ppm and then the whisky was aged in a combination of first-fill bourbon barrels, American virgin oak casks, and rye barrels. It was bottled at 50% ABV without chill-filtration or additional colouring.

Reviews for Meikle Tòir The Original
Definitely a Glenallachie
Youthful and exuberant, but carries the hallmarks of Glenallachie 8, 12, 15. Sweet smoke, wet fields, Werther's original. Strong in the nose.

Immediate hit of milk chocolate in the mouth, quite crunchie-like before the spice hits and a slightly savoury, woody finish that lasts a good while.

I really like this first release, looking forward to seeing how this expression develops.
