Alloa 1964/2008 Alambic Classique

by Oliver Klimek on May 10, 2012

Cask 80321 – 46.1%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright amber
Nose: Very strong. Honey, apricots, creme brulee, vanilla, polished wood, hints of cinnamon.
Palate: Apricots, apple crumble, vanilla, toffee, milk chocolate, hints of cinammon and pepper.
Finish: Very long and fruity, only minimal wood spice.
Overall: A big single grain from the days when they still made it from maize. This gives it a touch of bourbon but with an overwhelming fruitiness and less wood despite its high age.

Rating: 90/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Is Alloa the same as Carsebridge or is this a distillery that somehow slipped under my radar? I take it, it’s a closed one?

Alloa was made in North of Scotland Distillery, closed since 1980. It’s a bit like St. Magdalene and Linlithgow.
