All About the GlenAllachie 10 Year Old Batch 4

So, what’s so great about the GlenAllachie 10 Year Old Batch 4? Clinching the prestigious title of ‘World’s Best Single Malt’ at the 2021 World Whiskies Awards, the whisky was derived from the fourth batch of GlenAllachie’s cask strength 10 year old. The whisky was created by the legendary Billy Walker, who’s no stranger to the whisky scene – his Lum Reek 21 Year Old was awarded the title of ‘Best Blended Malt’ in 2020.


The whisky was also produced in limited quantities: only 4,500 cases were made available worldwide. Imagine that! Hailing from the Speyside distillery of GlenAllachie, the batch was bottled at 56.1% ABV. Coloured a warm mahogany, the whisky has a full-bodied flavour profile, with notes of honey, mocha, and dark chocolate. Hints of cinnamon and orange peel can be detected; on the nose, initial spicy notes of ginger and treacle give way to dried apricots, caramel, and white pepper. On the palate, the whisky has a thick and velvety mouthfeel, building up to a robust finish.
