Our new Valinch is a beautiful 21 year old that spent the majority of its life in an American bourbon barrel before being transferred to a French oak cask that had previously held one of the world’s finest eaux-de-vie.
This is a wonderful dram, an inspirational example of cask enhancement, or ACEing as we like to call it. It has been named for our Distillery Manager, the ever youthful Allan Logan, although even Allan no longer claims to be a mere 21 years old. There is talk of this being the first in a series of Valinch editions that will feature members of the Laddie Crew. We will have to see.
As with all our Valinch releases, it is only available to visitors to the Laddieshop where folk are invited to hand fill their own 50cl bottles. This is natural whisky in its purest state – entirely unfiltered and bottled at its cask strength of 52.6%.
