Description Ref # RON

This Glenallchie 12 Year Old is a very rare bottlng as a single malt, with most of the production going into Chivas.

This was the first vintage bottling of fully mature Glenallachie, bottled at 40% ABV in the 1980's.

There will be many opinions referring to the time period of Whisky Production in Scotland that could be referred to as "The Golden Age of Whisky." There is a time however that without doubt was special and considered by many that period.

The whisky made early 60s-70s with direct firing of stills, the abundant use of Golden Promise Barley, a slower more deliberated approach to production and even a more generous portion of malts in blends of the period ,all lead to a treasure of never again to be repeated whiskies.

We refer to this as the "The Golden Era of whisky."

Watch for whiskies from Turmeaus that is identified as such and give it careful consideration when you feel like a rare and special dram "

Tasting Notes

A very rich nose with a nice complexity while maintaining a remarkable balance.

A fresh palate and more diverse than the nose with a nice fresh acidity that evolves constantly going from notes marked by coffee at others showing a nice acid freshness with some very subtle oak notes.

The finish is long and cool with a nice complexity as a delicate wood notes embellish the complex and extremely pleasant finish.
