GlenAllachie 12 Year Old Chinquapin Virgin Oak Finish 700ml
This exceptional malt gets its complex, zesty flavours from casks made of Chinquapin Oak (Quercus Muehlenbergii) sourced from the Northern Ozark region in Missouri. Chinquapin is a sub species of Quercus Alba and delivers spicy flavours and aromas.
Air dried for almost four years, then toasted to medium level these casks give us the perfect balance of spirit and wood character.
Bottled at 48%, natural colour and non chill filtered.
Nose: Waves of heather honey, butterscotch and orange zest fused with nutmeg and liquorice.
Palate: Layers of heather honey, barley sugar, toasted biscuit and orange zest, followed by cinnamon, rosehips and liquorice.
