A single cask release selected by and bottled exclusively for WhiskyBrother and not available anywhere else in the world!
Our 27th exclusive release is a wonderful GlenDronach single malt. Distilled on 3 March 2008, matured in an ex-sherry (Pedro Ximénez) puncheon and bottled earlier this year in 2020. Only 644 bottles were produced. Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at a cask strength of 63.7%! (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Buttered raisin and olive bread with oak balsam and ginger. Feisty and spicy!
Palate: Raisin and crystallised ginger with crème-caramel. The high alcohol pleasantly restrained on the palate.
Finish: Very long. Sweet, spicy and gingery.
This is our 2nd GlenDronach exclusive release, with the first release available over 4 years ago (2016) and long sold-out. Interestingly, the first release was under the watchful eye of then master distiller Billy Walker, while our new release is under the stewardship of new master distiller Dr Rachel Barrie.
