Glenallachie 2008 7yr Provenance (Douglas Laing)
With Tom out in Dublin and both of us invited to take part in the Douglas Laing #TasteTheRegions Twitter Tasting I stepped up to do some notes and that is where i tried thisGlenallachie 2008 7yr Provenance.
Another whisky that stood out that I hadn’t knowingly tried before was the Glenallachie. This is a distillery that was opened in 1967 primarily to contribute malt to the MacKinlay blend.
You can purchase this from the Douglas Laing Online Shop or some Specialist retailers.
Thanks to Douglas Laing for the invite to the tasting and for the samples
