Allt-A-Bhainne Single Malt

Pernod Ricard’s Scotch whisky arm, Chivas Brothers, has released a new single malt brand that aims to “shake up” the category, called Allt-A-Bhainne, which combines the “smokiness of peat with the fruity sweetness” of Speyside. The whisky aims to “push conventional boundaries to attract a new generation of drinkers”. Bottled at 40% ABV, the expression is described as having notes of soft red apples, sweet runny honey, delicate smoke and toffee, followed by a long, smoky, slightly dry and spicy finish. The Allt-A-Bhainne distillery is based in Speyside, and began distilling whisky in 1975.

RRP: £37.

    Chill filtered, added caramel,, 40% ABV – obviously aimed at the mainstream supermarkets so that it has visual appeal on the shelf. It is generally disappointing when the owners of distilleries which normally produce in bulk for blends decide to go for one of these “designer” releases, particularly when there has been some very good independent bottling’s from this particular distillery in the past.
