Allt-a-Bhainne – 2000 – 12 years – Sherrywood

Douglas of Drumlanrig
Distilled : 05/2000 Bottled: 10/2012 Cask Number : 9219 – Alcool : 46%

The style of whisky Allt-a-Bhainne is flowery, slightly sweet, has slightly spicy notes and is ideal as an aperitif. Itis used exclusively for the Chivas Regal blend, which is why there has never been original bottling. Only a few bottles of some independent bottlers are on the market.

Allt-a-Bhainne distillery
Allt-a-Bhainne est une distillerie de whisky située à Glenrinnes dans le Banffshire dans la grande région productrice de whisky, le Speyside. Son nom est en gaélique écossais ; il signifie la « ruisseau de lait ».
L’eau permettant la fabrication de l’Allt-a-Bhainne provient du Scurran et de la source Rowantree. La distillerie possède un mashtun de 8.4 tonnes en acier inoxydable, huit cuves de fermentation faisant au total 352.000 litres en acier inoxydable également, deux wash stills et deux spirit stills chauffés indirectement à la vapeur.
Le whisky de Allt-a-Bhainne est fleuri, un peu sucré, possède une note légèrement épicée et convient plutôt comme apéritif. Il coule exclusivement dans le blend Chivas Regal, c’est pourquoi il n’y a encore jamais eu d’embouteillage original.  Quelques bouteilles seulement de certains embouteilleurs indépendants sont sur le marché.

The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
