Meikle toir is Gaelic for "Big pursuit", which is precisely what Glenallachie embarked on creating this collection. The goal: to carefully craft and cask-perfect a peerless peated single malt at our Speyside home, The GlenAllachie Distillery. 

The original is made with mainland peat from St. Fergus, the flavour contribution is sweeter than that anticipated of coastal peat. With an extended fermentation time of 160 hours, nearly triple the industry average, the whisky boasts a flavour-rich, complex character. Aged in a combination of first-fill Bourbon barrels, American virgin oak casks and Rye barrels, the spirit clocks in at 35 PPM. 

TASTING NOTES

NOSE Baking spices, burnt honey and roasted coffee beans leading to hazelnuts, smoked almonds and butterscotch.
PALATE Wisps of sweet peat, rich chocolate and heather honey, followed by cinnamon, ginger and oak-smoked sugar.
