GlenAllachie Virgin Oak Series: Spanish Virgin Oak 10 Year Old 70cl
For Batch Three of GlenAllachie's Virgin Oak series, the whisky was first matured in American Oak ex-bourbon barrels. To add a distinctive twist, the whisky then underwent additional maturation for approximately 18 months in specially selected virgin oak casks.
This mahogany malt obtains its spicy, treacly flavours from maturation in hogsheads made of Spanish Oak (Quercus Robur). This particular wood was sourced from the regions of Galicia and Asturias, specifically from the forests of the Cantabrian Mountains, which have a cool, humid climate.
