Review: Macaloney Caledonian Invermallie – Red Wine Barrique

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 15, 2021

Two weeks ago I reviewed the Inveramallie release from the Macaloney Caledonian Distillery which was matured in an Ex-Bourbpon cask.  Today I am looking at another Invermallie release this time one which has been matured in a re-charred red wine barrique imported from Europe. This barrique underwent a shave-toast-rechar preparation which is meant to  give the spirit a complex nose with red berries, dried fruit, demerara sugar, leather, oak and honey.

The Invermallie releases may be regarded as the distillery’s connoisseurs/collector’s edition expressions. This is an ever-changing series of classic single malt expressions based on unique one-off single casks, or other special selections.

The lightly sweet maltiness pairs well with the fruity licorice,  but the nuances are indistinct and thus hard to describe in terms of taste descriptors. The result is a whisky which is light and airy even though it is bottled at 46 % abv …”

Please enjoy my review which continues a series of reviews of the new whiskies from the Macaloney Caledonian Distillery.

Chimo!
