The GlenAllchie 8 Year Old Scottish Virgin Oak is a rare single malt part of the Virgin Oak Series. Matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels and finished in Scottish virgin oak casks sourced from the Atlantic coast. Scottish oak is rarely used for whisky maturation due to its high cost and tendency to knot, as well as the challenging aspects of growing, milling and coopering the wood.
The oak was dried naturally for 36 months before being toasted and charred and then filled. Despite it's challenges, the GlenAllachie Scottish Oak presents notes of blonde chocolate, with hints of zesty orange and smooth toffee to offer a truly unique drinking experience.
Bottled at 48%, natural colour and non chill filtered.
