The GlenAllachie has launched the next installment of its 10-year-old Single Malt: The GlenAllachie 10-Year-Old Cask Strength Batch 7. The release follows acclaimed previous batches from the Speyside distillery, most notably the fourth batch which was awarded World’s Best Single Malt at the 2021 World Whiskies Awards.
The GlenAllachie 10-Year-Old Cask Strength Batch 7 was aged in a combination of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry puncheons, Rioja barriques, and virgin oak casks, all selected and blended by Master Distiller Billy Walker.
Bottled at 56.8% ABV, without added coloring or chill filtration, the whisky offers rich mocha, stewed plums, runny honey, and cinnamon tones.
“Every batch we create of our 10-year-old Cask Strength represents the direction in which we are taking The GlenAllachie,” explained Walker. “From the outset, our defined objective has been to achieve a bold and flavourful yet balanced spirit, predominantly matured in Sherry wood, but with interesting twists introduced by unusual cask types.
“This latest batch is a complex and enjoyable drinking experience which brings together spirit from some truly exceptional Sherry, Wine and virgin oak casks. I must say, this one is pretty special!”
The GlenAllachie 10-year-old Cask Strength Batch 7 is available to purchase from global specialist retailers, and is priced at £62.99 ($83 USD).

In October, the distillery added a third batch of whiskies to its Wood Finish range. Last July, The GlenAllachie Distillers Company unveiled its first-ever rum, part of a range of small-batch rums released under the company’s MacNair’s brand called Exploration Rum.
