Allt-a-Bhiane 12 Year Old Single Cask, 70cl.
Allt-A-Bhainne is a distillery that, it's fair to say, doesn't always get people hot under the collar. It's a workhorse distillery knocking out straightforward Speyside single malt whisky for owner Pernod Ricard's blends, principally Chivas Regal and 100 Pipers.
Nose: Speyside malt floors, charred pear, key lime pie and a hint of new leather.
Palate: A big milk cocoa blast, toasted oak, warm caramel and a soft ginger flavour.
Finish: Medium-long with a touch more spice, fig fruit and chocolate orange.
