WINE SERIES: THE CUVÉE WINE CASK FINISH
To craft The GlenAllachie Wine Series, Master Blender Billy Walker first expertly matured this complex spirit in the finest American oak ex-Bourbon barrels, before transferring the whisky into hand-selected European wine barriques for secondary aging. Famed for his ability to strike the perfect balance between innovation and tradition, Billy added a distinctive twist to this release by ultimately blending four exceptional wine cask finishes into one unique expression:
The Cuvée Wine Cask Finish. A French term, Cuvée is used in the wine industry to indicate a wine of superior quality in which two or more grape varieties have been blended. Cuvée is a true illustration of Billy’s blending prowess gained across his 50 years of experience.
With a passion for sourcing casks from niche producers, Billy acquired wine barriques from the world-famous wine regions of Languedoc and Valpolicella, along with casks from two Premier Cru Classé chateaux in Bordeaux to both complement, and elevate, the honeyed spirit.
The character development of each individual barrique was carefully monitored, before
the whiskies were expertly married by Billy to create this golden liquid, offering up elegant stone fruits, hints of toasted almonds and zesty orange peel on the palate.
