The sixth batch of UK exclusive single casks, each demonstrating the unique interaction of the wood, spirit, and subsequent flavour extension. Billy, who is passionate about sourcing unique and innovative casks from niche producers, personally sought out this extraordinary Premier Cru Classé from France (2011 #1036).
Premier Cru Classé is a French wine classification relating to the most well-respected vineyards and highly-coveted wines of Bordeaux. Aging our complex GlenAllachie spirit in this red wine cask brings elegant notes of ripe red berries, sugared almonds and sweet cinnamon.
Colour: Ruby Blush.
Nose: Bursting with apple peel, cinnamon and heather honey, with rose petals, dark chocolate and Turkish delight.
Taste: Waves of butterscotch, honeysuckle and mint, followed by bursts of strawberry, ginger and almonds.
