1995 Glenallachie 26 Year Old “Hart Brothers Finest Collection” K&L Exclusive Cask Strength Single ex-Bourbon Barrel Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
The excellent distillery that’s garnering so much hype these days was unheard of just a few years ago. While the distillery is focused mainly on the heavy sherry offerings, this exciting first fill ex-bourbon cask is a window into the unique character of this special distillery. Opened relatively late in 1967 just outside of the town of Aberlour, it’s in very good company geographically. Directly to the north is the wonderful Aberlour distillery and to the west Dailuaine. Due south you’ll find Benrinnes and a bit further GlenFarclas. Finding an expression of this age and caliber from any of these distilleries is rare, but a until recently GlenAllachie at this age and quality was nearly unheard of. That’s because all the stocks went to the blends. Now, with the change in ownership, some things have shaken loose a bit. Expect a quintessentially Speyside ex-bourbon style here with tons of fruit, honey, and whiffs of blooming heather. A truly special barrel from an equally special distiller. Bottled at cask strength of 111 proof and without chillfiltration or coloring.
