GlenAllachie Meikle Tòir 5 Year Old The Original

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.
‘The Original’ is Meikle Tòir’s classic Single Malt, made with mainland peat from St. Fergus, where the flavour contribution is sweeter than that anticipated of coastal peat. With an extended fermentation time of 160 hours, nearly triple the industry average, the whisky boasts flavour-rich, complex character. Aged in a combination of first-fill bourbon barrels, American virgin oak casks and rye barrels, the spirit clocks in at 35 PPM.

    Nose:    Baking spices, burnt honey and espresso, with hazelnuts, smoked almonds and butterscotch.

    Taste:    Sweet peat, rich chocolate and heather honey, with cinnamon, ginger and oak-smoked sugar.

    Finish:    Intense and long.
