Der kommer nu 3 forskellige wood finish aftapninger fra GlenAllachie på henholdsvis 8, 10 og 12 år.
Den 8 års har været en tur forbi Koval Rye Quarter Casks, den 10 års er afsluttet på port fade, og den 12 års er afsluttet på Pedro Ximenez fade. Alle tre er aftappet ved 48%

Alistair Walker siger: "I’m incredibly excited to unveil this new range featuring GlenAllachie’s first-ever range of wood finishes. Wood management is something I’m very passionate about and we invest a substantial amount of time and money into sourcing exceptional casks from all around the world. I look for casks that will complement and enhance the GlenAllachie spirit, with the different woods making a greater, or sometimes subtle, influence, and taking us on a journey of new flavours."

"The rich golden Rye Quarter Cask delivers a hit of spice and cloves with classic GlenAllachie characteristics of honey and butterscotch, whereas the ruby red Port Pipe has a sweeter and fruitier flavour, with honey, damson and rose hips. Finally the Pedro Ximenez, deep rich mahogany in colour, delivers what the eye promises; raisins, sultanas, toffee and dark chocolate. With this first release you can see the impact that a quality and carefully chosen cask can have on our whisky, from the amazing array of colours to the intensity of flavours in the final whisky."
