GlenAllachie Meikle Tòir 5 Year Old The Chinquapin One

Meikle Tòir (meaning ‘big pursuit’) Peated Single Malt is carefully crafted and cask-perfected at The GlenAllachie Distillery in Speyside, under the guidance of Master Distiller, Billy Walker.
Aged in superior Chinquapin virgin oak barrels sourced from the Northern Ozark region of Missouri, USA, The Chinquapin One Single Malt delivers robust notes of sweet spices and toasted nuts which join the peat smoke. Coming in at 35 PPM, the whisky has a sweeter style of smoke character owing to the mainland peat from St. Fergus used to kiln the barley. After a lengthy 160-hour fermentation, the whisky has a complex character which stands up well to ageing in virgin oak casks.

    Nose:    Smouldering oak embers, burnt liquorice and honey, with ginger, butterscotch and orange peel.

    Taste:    Cocoa, crème brûlée and toasted almonds, with cinnamon, aniseed and campfire smoke.

    Finish:    Medium to long finish.
