Three new GlenAllachie Single Malts from the Wood Finish Series

With Batch 3, Billy Walker presents finished whiskies from Sherry, Port and Madeira casks

In 2019, GlenAllachie launched the Wood Finish Series: These single malt whiskies are very intensively shaped by the casks selected for finishing. Billy Walker knows better than anyone else how to refine whiskies by finishing maturations. For the third batch of the Wood Finish Series he selected sherry, port and Madeira casks.

All three new GlenAllachie Wood Finishes were bottled at 48% ABV in a natural colour without chill filtration: GlenAllachie 11 YO PX, GlenAllachie 12 YO Ruby Port and GlenAllachie 13 YO Madeira.
