The 5th WhiskyBrother exclusive release is here! This GlenDronach 13yo single cask is matured in a second fill, Pedro Ximenez sherry puncheon, providing an unmissable dose of sherry influence without overpowering the nuance of the spirit. Distilled in March 2003, and bottled in April this year, the cask yielded a total of 519 bottles, each individually numbered and bottled at a cask strength of 54.1%.
Nose: Stewed apples with cinnamon, allspice and sultanas, drizzled with honey and sprinkled with demerara sugar. Reminiscent of a warm rice pudding!
Palate: Toasted oak and a soft vanilla barley sweetness with notes of milk chocolate and orange zest. A lovely buttery mouth-feel.
Finish: Warming with the soft cinnamon and clove spice gently fading. This is long-lasting with the lingering balance of spice, toasted oak and raisins.
