The Meikle Tòir range (meaning ‘big pursuit’ and pronounced mee-kuhl tor) comprises peated whisky made at GlenAllachie Distillery with guidance from legendary master distiller Billy Walker. The Original is a single malt made with mainland peat from St. Fergus, a sweeter, grassier variety than found on the coast.

The GlenAllachie Distillery

The GlenAllachie was the 4th distillery designed by William Delme-Evans and built by Mackinlay McPherson. It began its first production run in 1968. In 2017 it was acquired by Billy Walker alongside his business partners Trisha Savage and Graham Stevenson. Just 9 months after taking ownership their first core malts were launched marking the first ever range of single malts to be released by the distillery.
On the nose you will find aromas of cinnamon, vanilla, butterscotch, floral honey, toasted oak, and smoked heather. The palate leads with toasted almonds, espresso, dark chocolate, gingerbread, bonfire smoke, and caramel. Leading to a finish of baking spices and sweet peat.
Best served neat.
