We are excited to give a preview of our latest GlenDronach expression - the GlenDronach Cask Strength!
This expression is not available in the market yet - it will be bottled in November. The whisky is matured in a combination of the finest Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks. It is non chill filtered and of natural colour.
Tasting notes:
Colour
A deep golden body glistens with rich crimson.
Nose
A luscious balance of succulent sherry aromas explode in honey drizzled golden sultanas spiced by warm oak and gentle ginger.
Palate
Intense toffee and cocoa cascade into the rich sherry soaked dark fruits. Zested orange explodes in the long alcohol infused chocolate fondant.
Finish
Long and lingering.
Another preview and tasting notes can be found on the Whiskyfun website.
