Colour: Intense cherry wood. Nose : Breathe in delightful waves of Victoria plum, bramble and strawberry jam with top notes of cherry blossom and honeysuckle on a base of sandalwood and ginger. Palate : Layers upon layers of rich fruits. Sip blackberry and roasted apple crumble with freshly baked gingerbread, developing into a baked orange and black cherry back note. Finish : Savour orange peel, sultana and cherry cake lingering into the richly fruity finish.
Hidden in the east Highland hills, The GlenDronach Distillery has been quietly perfecting sherry wood maturation since 1826 when our founder, James Allardic, discovered the rich depths of sherry wood maturation, marrying Scottish spirit to Spanish cask. Little has changed over the centuries as our craftsmen use the same iron mash tun, wooden washback’s and saxophone copper pot stills as their forefathers did. Within the range of Spanish oak sherry casks available, The GlenDronach focuses on the marriage of fruity and nutty Oloroso Sherry casks and intensely, rich Pedro Ximenez casks. Alongside the flavour, Oloroso casks give The GlenDronach its signature depth in colour while Pedro Ximenez casks provide the signature richness and depth in flavour.
