The GlenAllachie 11 Year Old Grattamacco Wine Cask Finish 700ml 48%
Part of GlenAllachie’s Wine Cask Series!
Cask type: Bourbon/Wine cask finish
Bottler: The GlenAllachie Distillery
This rare 11-year-old is crafted from select, American oak, ex-bourbon barrels and then finished in medium toasted Super Tuscan Barriques. These certified Organic Barriques were meticulously chosen from the Grattamacco winery in the Bolgheri area of Tuscany in Italy, and then bottled once optimum balance of wood and spirit was achieved. Like all GlenAllachie whiskies, this expression is non-chill-filtered with no added colouring.
The Distillery comments:
“To craft The GlenAllachie Wine Series, we first expertly matured our spirit in American Oak Ex-Bourbon Barrels. Subsequently, the whisky underwent additional maturation for almost two years in Wine Barriques meticulously sourced by Master Distiller, Billy Walker, imparting a distinctive twist onto the GlenAllachie spirit..”
