Selected from a combination of ex-Pedro Ximenez and ex-Oloroso sherry casks, this is GlenDronach's 10th release of their cask strength batches. An aroma of apricot and chocolate-orange cake, roasted nuts and raisins can be found, leading to richly spiced fruitcake with dark cherries and honeyed sultana flavour. Finishing with ginger jam and caramelised date qualities.
A very rare indepentently bottled expression of old style GlenDronach, this limited expression bottled by North Star is sure to impress. Distilled in 1991 before maturing in a single refil Oloroso Sherry Butt for 31 years. The nose is rather earthy, with notes of petrichor, (the smell asscoiated with the arrival of rain) and hot tar, accompained with freshly cracked black pepper. The finish takes a rich and deep turn, with elements of Black Forrest Gateau and rich hot chocolate.
Situated just outside of Huntly in the highlands of Scotland, the GlenDronach distillery has since 1826 produced a style of whisky that is renowned for its rich, heavy character. Notes of dried fruit (raisins, sultanas) followed by a big dollop of toffee and sherry lead into hints of dark chocolate/cocoa. The GlenDronach 12 is one of the best value for money whiskies that we stock, punching far above its weight.
Matured in a combination of ex-olorosso and ex-Pedro Xiniminez cask for a minimum of 21 years, the Parliament is a rich and decadent dram. Aromas of ripe Autumnal fruits, notably blackberries and red plums and toasted oak. Resolute flavours of fine Oloroso sherry open up on the palate and bitter chocolate sauce which has been spread liberally over homemade plum pudding. This is all infused with spicy notes of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. A full bodied dram with a long lingering and spicy finish.
In stark contrast to the more well known style of whisky made at GlenDronach, this expression has been made from peated barley, paying tribute to the peat historically used to dry the barley in the early days of whisky making. The classic GlenDronach character is still there, with fruit, spice and toffee, and a subtle peat note smouldering throughout, adding dryness and a finish reminicent of an earthy campfire smoke. The use of peated barley has been used cleverly and carefully here, never dominanting but always present - an excellent new addition to the range.
From GlenDronach distillery this whisky has been maturing for ten years, with the last three years in port pipes from the Douro Valley in Portugal. The nose has notes of plums, bramble, strawberry jam and ginger. The palate has big fruit notes with blackberry and roasted apple, baked orange and freshly backed gingerbread. To finish the notes develop into orange peel, sultana and cherry cake.
GlenDronach's 'Revival' 15 years old has been matured in both Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez, giving it a rich, robust and mouth-filling palate and a complex and rewarding nose. Dense with flavours of heavy toffee, macerated dried fruits and a distinctive hint of dark chocolate. One of our most popular whiskies and an excellent example of the iconic Highland Scotch whisky style.
Batch 11 of GlenDronach's famed cask strength series is a classic recipe of fully matured ex-sherry (Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez) whisky, married together and bottled at natural cask strength. To start, the aroma is full of treacle and orange, with clove liqueur spices and nutty oak. On the palate, a classic note of treacle toffee and chocolate raisins, with cinnamon and maple notes through the finish, touched with a bit of Seville orange.
