Glendronach 16 Year Old Single Malt Whisky

This expression, exclusively for the travel retail market, focuses on this landscape of the distillery, celebrating the earthy and bramble fruit terroir of the area. It has been matured within fine Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks, from Andalucia in Spain, and port casks, from the Douro Valley in Portugal, as was imported and served in the houses of Scotland’s gentry at turn of the 19th century. The Spanish sherry casks bring out the rich house character of The GlenDronach while the port casks add the complex layers of bramble fruitiness that pay homage to the distillery’s home. In many ways it is the expression that our founder Allardice would have enjoyed in Glen House in years gone by.

Tasting Notes

APPEARANCE
Burnished copper with a red bramble hue.
NOSE
Fruit-led and complex. Plum pudding, cherry stone and apricot brandy with traces of nutmeg and sandalwood tempered by the sweetness of quince.
PALATE
Exceedingly rich and fruity with baked apricot, cherry and plum skin in a fruitcake with orange and walnut cream.
CONCLUSION
Savour dates, apricot and walnut lingering into the rich velvet finish.
