GlenAllachie, the core

The GlenAllachie Distillery, located in Aberlour, Scotland. A distillery with a fabulous core range. A ranch everyone was excited about the last couple of weeks and still are for those who are still dreaming about their very first GlenAllachie nip. Dreams must come true, to make more space for new dreams or should I say; Drams.

There is a lot of love in this whisky …
