The 18-year-old core expression from sherry cask masters GlenDronach, this expression is becoming harder to find as aged stock becomes more of an issue.
New shipment September 2020. Current batch is a 2019 bottling code.
Matured exclusively in ex-oloroso cask, the GlenDronach 18 has become a benchmark of premium sherry cask maturation.
Founded in 1826 and in our view one of the top three 'sherry houses' (the others being Macallan and Glenfarclas), GlenDronach has enjoyed a period of supremacy amongst sherry-cask loving whisky fans.
Its most recent period of closure - from 1996 to 2002 - has put a strain on mature stocks, meaning not only that they are released on strict allocations but their age statements often contain whisky older than what the label states.
Nose: Sweet aromatics of fudge and muscovado sugar. Fruit compote and glacier morello cherries provide added complexity.
Palate: Rich dark and seductive. Remarkable flavours of stewed fruits and all-spice marry together with classical aged Oloroso and toasted walnut bread and chocolate orange.
