Product Description

GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 7, bottled at 57.9% abv without chill filtration or the addition of colour, includes whiskies aged in Pedro Ximénez and oloroso Sherry casks.

Master blender Rachel Barrie described the whisky as ‘smooth, nutty and rounded, with notes of Highland toffee, walnut cream, sultana bread and figs’. This, she added, was the result of the whisky’s Sherry cask maturation in GlenDronach’s earthen-floored dunnage warehouses, which helped create ‘a sublime aroma, rounded taste, full body and long-lasting finish’.

With a cask selection spanning summer, autumn and winter distillation at GlenDronach, the resulting marriage delivers a malt with a strong heart, complex taste and smooth, mellow maturity,’ said Barrie.

Our Tasting Notes:

Nose: Treacle tart, gingerbread, honey roasted nuts, sherry soaked golden sultanas, wood polish, toasted cinnamon and vanilla. Pancakes/waffles with golden syrup and a note of hot blackcurrant squash.

Palate: Demorera topped stewed black fruit crumble, marmalade glazed ginger cake, a thick and syrupy body/mouthfeel with spicy aromatic oak, coffee fudge, nut brittle and treacle flapjacks.

Finish: Rich and syrupy with chocolate truffles and sticky toffee pudding, ginger nut biscuit base with spicy cinnamon butter, more treacle and nut brittle and a touch of blackcurrant cordial.

A big and bold batch 7 of the great value for money cask strength Glendronach, great long finish and plenty to enjoy and chew on here.

Highly recommended.
