Billy Walker, celebrating his 50th anniversary in the industry this year, said the following on the release: “When we first unveiled our 30-year-old Cask Strength annual release last year, we were completely overwhelmed and humbled by the immensely positive response from whisky fans around the world. This fuelled me with great enthusiasm to get underway with the next batch, endeavouring to raise the bar even higher with this instalment. We’re delighted to present the second batch of our eldest core release, delivering a bold and complex organoleptic profile truly representative of our house style and where we are taking The GlenAllachie Distillery.”

To create this whisky, 1990 and 1991 vintages matured in six former Pedro Ximénez and oloroso sherry hogsheads and puncheons were selected by Walker, along with two 1990 American virgin oak barrels which were toasted and charred to a medium level.

The producer has described some of the flavour as revealing layers of Seville orange, coffee beans, desiccated coconut and Medjool dates. The single malt is non chill filtered, without added colour and comes in with a cask strength of 50.8% ABV.
