  • One of the six-strong single cask single malt releases from the ‘new’ GlenAllachie. The capitalised ‘A’ in the middle of the name gives a clue to the distillery’s new owner: Billy Walker, previously of BenRiach (and indeed GlenDronach). Walker bought the distillery from Chivas Brothers last year and, in doing so, set about transforming GlenAllachie from a little-known distillery producing fillings for blends such as Passport and 100 Pipers, into a quality-oriented single malt in its own right.

    A core range is set to launch in June but, while we wait for that, there is this initial release of six single cask single malts – spanning the years 1978 to 1991, with two each from 1989 and 1990 in the middle.

    84/100 on scotchwhisky.com

    Nose: Initially, this is softer, slightly shyer than #986 (which might be partly down to the lower strength). There’s a shared sultana element, but more overt citrus elements, while the fruitiness moves towards pomegranate molasses and scented candles. It steadily grows in assurance, becoming a polished mix of dried orchard fruit, macadamia, orange peel.

    Palate: A very soft start, with a gentle mid-palate. There’s great flow and a sense of a softening maturity, with waxy fruit that expands with water, which adds in cocoa powder, subtle tannins, then cherry and cinnamon tea, and some raisin.

    Finish:Drying initially, then the fruits. Conclusion You need to work a little at this one, but it is rewarding.
