Cadenhead Glenallachie-Glenlivet 20 year-old

Sleepy is the word I used to describe how I felt this Monday morning after the daylight savings time moved our clocks one hour ahead. Before I find myself falling asleep and possibly drooling at my desk I’ll share my Cadenhead Glenallachie-Glenlivet 20 year-old post.

The Glenallachie-Glenlivet distillery was founded in 1967. The distillery is now owned by Campbell distillers, which is a part of Pernod Ricard. Glenallachie is a whisky you rarely see as a single malt, which might account for the fact that not many people have heard of it. Most of the Glenallachie produced is incorporated in blended whiskies, like Chivas.

This 20 year-old was distilled in 1992 and bottled in 2013. It was matured bourbon hogshead and Cadenhead released only 516 bottles. I was lucky enough to try this at the The Last Hurrah here in Boston. The bottle we got served from only had a little bit left so if you are looking to try and live in Boston, there is a chance you might be able to try it.

Tasting Notes
Nose: sweet and notes of honey
Palate: creamy with notes of sweetness, coconut and fruit
Finish: smooth with a delightful burn

I very much enjoyed this whisky. It was a dram I didn’t want to put down. The notes worked together harmoniously and there was a nice balance of sweetness to this dram.

If you come across it, I highly recommend trying. It was tasty and it didn’t disappoint.
