The GlenDronach Cask Strength offers connoisseurs a deep insight into the distillery’s signature character, by bottling at the whisky’s natural cask strength of 59.4%. The ninth release of this expression has been matured in Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks, resulting in a characterful and richly-sherried Single Malt, with the full depth of maturation in Spanish oak.
Add a drop or two of water to reveal a cornucopia of flavour; from treacle toffee and raisin -filled toasted brioche, to baked apple and bramble pie and star anise. The depth of flavour continues into The GlenDronach’s signature long and lingering finish.
Each Cask Strength release has been bottled without chill filtration and at high strength, as was the custom before the turn of the 20th century. As with all The GlenDronach expressions, all of the natural colour is drawn from slow maturation in Spanish oak casks.
Cocoa, liquorice root and baked orange on a base of sultana bread and crème brûlée.
Treacle toffee and raisin -filled toasted brioche crescendo to baked apple and bramble pie, butterscotch and star anise.
Layers of richly roasted malt, and a lingering dark chocolate, espresso finish.
