The GlenAllachie Distillery is kicking off the festive season with the addition of a small batch expression to its range. Following on from a period of innovation for the brand, it has released the Batch One of The GlenAllachie 21 Years Old Cask Strength single malt just in time for Christmas.

Available worldwide, the limited release is bottled at 51.4% ABV and consists of 1,600 bottles at an RRP of £199. The expression will be batch-released on an annual basis with the aim of serving both whisky enthusiasts and the festive market.

The Batch One expression features five Pedro Ximénex puncheons and hogsheads from 1997 and 1998, married together by master distiller Billy Walker. The liquid was selected from The GlenAllachie’s stock of more than 50,000 casks, with the PX puncheons and hogsheads imparting rich, sherried notes.

Commenting on the new addition to The GlenAllachie range, Walker says: “There are some whiskies which are simply a pleasure to create; our 15 Years Old which we launched in 2019 was one, and this new 21 Years Old is undoubtedly another. Sherry casks of this vintage are scarce, so I have been carefully monitoring each since we bought the distillery in anticipation of releasing a very special and beautifully aged expression at its peak. These casks have now achieved the perfect balance of sherried depth and complexity, which we have bottled at natural cask strength to showcase the full experience that these casks deliver.

“Whisky lovers can anticipate a single malt which reveals an indulgent combination of fruit cake and treacle, alongside stewed plums, dark chocolate shavings and sweet cinnamon pancakes.”
