Indulge in the exclusivity of GlenAllachie's 8 Year Old Scottish Virgin Oak from Batch 3 of their Virgin Oak Series. This rare single malt boasts additional maturation in casks crafted from Scottish Sessile Oak (Quercus Petrae), sourced from the challenging conditions of the Atlantic coast. The scarcity and complexity of working with Scottish oak, known for its rarity, costliness, and knotty nature, make it a seldom-used medium for whisky maturation.

Before its journey into the cask, the wood underwent a meticulous 36-month air-drying process, followed by toasting and charring to a medium level. Despite the challenges, this desirable oak imparts opulent notes of blonde chocolate, accompanied by subtle hints of zesty orange and smooth toffee.

The nose reveals a burst of baked oats, complemented by the rich sweetness of butterscotch and toffee. Subtle notes of cinnamon, gingersnaps, and heather honey add layers of complexity, creating a captivating olfactory experience.

As you take a sip, the palate unfolds with lashings of heather honey, intertwined with the crispness of orchard fruits and a touch of lemon zest. The taste journey continues with the luxurious presence of white chocolate, accompanied by warming hints of cinnamon and ginger. The finish is a harmonious blend of toffee and butterscotch, leaving a delightful sweetness that lingers.
