Glendronach 8 Year Old Single Malt Whisky

Unveiled in mid-2015, GlenDronach's The Hielan' is a rather handsome entry level 8 year old single malt from the Highland distillery's range, matured and married in bourbon and Sherry casks. Delightfully buttery with a good helping of chewy raisin and almond notes at its core, joined by touches of citrus and spice.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Honey'd malt, vanilla fudge and citrus peels. Slightly chocolate-y raisin notes and a little cinnamon.

Palate: More spice comes through on the palate, but the vanilla-rich buttery elements remain up front. Freshly baked biscuits topped with almonds and plump sultanas.

Finish: Quite long, with Sherried fruit and ginger lasting.

Whisky Resource Note:

There is no mention on the Glendronach website of the 8 year old, coupled with few retailers having any stock suggests this may be discontinued.
