Meikle Toir 5 Year Old The Original is a classic single malt whisky that is a true champion of the peaty endeavour. It's made with onshore peat from St. Fergus and its flavour contribution is sweeter than expected from coastal peat.
The whisky is produced at the GlenAllachie distillery in Speyside, Scotland. Master Distiller Billy Walker was responsible for the creation of this whisky. Using premium coastal peat to achieve an oaky, sweet and smoky style, a process of prolonged fermentation, heavy distillation and expert maturation takes the spirit to the top. After 5 years of patient dormancy, the spirit in each cask must meet the exacting standards of just Billy Walker and his team to make it into the bottle.
First fill ex-bourbon barrels, American virgin oak barrels and Rye barrels were used. The bottles were bottled at 50 % alcohol and come in gift boxes.
Scottish illustrator Iain McIntosh was commissioned to create a hand-drawn illustration that captures the beautiful but rugged setting of Northern Speyside. The central peak is inspired by Ben Rinnes - the highest peak in the area.
The carefully chosen earthy colour palette highlights the whisky's smoky flavour profile and was inspired by the nature around the GlenAllachie distillery: moss, oak, heather and sky.
