GlenAllachie 25 First Editions / GlenAllachie 21 1996 Signatory Cask Strength

Thanks to /u/xile_ for the sample.

GlenAllachie. I’ve not reviewed one before. This is my first time. Hopefully I’m gentle with myself.

Let’s be honest, I won’t be.

GlenAllachie was founded in 1967, making it quite young. Also impressive that such a young whisky distillery survived the 80s. Heck I’m surprised most people surprised the 80s, what with the downturn, horrible leadership, focus on marketing and consumerism…. Oh, wait, that’s now.

At least no distilleries closed down in the 10s. GlenAllachie was mothballed in 1985, sold in 1989 and then restarted. In 2017, it was sold again and is now owned by the GlenAllachie Distillers Company Limited along with White Heather and MacNairs.

Thus why we’ve started seeing OBs pop up.

I haven’t run into any yet, but I did run into two independent bottles, both from previous ownership in the 90s. Let’s see how they taste, shall we?
