I've found a bottling (Dun Bheagan single cask - bourbon) of 12yr old Glenallachie, and I'm curious. I need to make my mind up real fast since there's only a handful of these bottles, and I haven't seen much from this distillery at the LCBO. Is this a same-and-samey speysider, or does it have something that folks would recommend.
Would appretiate any feedback (good or bad) on the subject!
Can't say for sure as merchant bottlings are very rare from this young distllery built in 1967, closed, sold and reopened in late 1980's, aside from a 12yr old OB most of the output goes towards Campbell blends (Pernod Ricard). My guess is that nothing out of the ordinary, but as expressions are rare, it may be worthy of the expenditure.
there are a few indepdent bottles i have a few bottles of a 18 year old bottled by the whisky castle in tomintoul bottled at 43%
a light bodyied whisky sherbert lightly fruity a nice dram
hope this helps
The '90 was an OB but selected by a supermarket in belgium, so it probably wont be representive for the distillery (I most surely hope not). Offcourse thats only one bottling, I have no idea how the rest tastes but I'd be cautious nevertheless.

These CS editions are usually available only from the distilleries themselves but I was able to order my Scapa from the website I mentioned above - Scapa Cask Strength Edition
There is no "Aberlour Cask Strength Edition" - this is the a'bunadh.
Hope that helps!
