From the Gaelic, Gleann Aileachaidh, meaning Valley of the Rocks, this independent, Scottish owned and managed whisky company focuses on the important thing which is making great whisky.
With a passion for sourcing casks from niche producers, Billy Walker 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.
COLOUR: Golden Bronze.
N O S E : Bursting with orange blossom, espresso, maraschino cherries and honeysuckle, with hints of candied stone fruits, hazelnuts, lavender and cinnamon.
TASTE: Waves of dark chocolate, red currants and burnt coffee beans, followed by crystalised almonds, blackberries and orange zest, with ginger and liquorice on the finish.
