A rare example of peated GlenDronach, a distillery famous for its heavily-sherried highlands whiskies.

Paying homage to the old school style of highland and mainland whiskies that were peated (think 1800s), this is matured in ex-sherry (both oloroso and Pedro Ximenez) and ex-port casks.

The marriage of the smoke and the loud casks is at the essence here, with lots of deep treacle-style sweetness and rustic, coal-fire smoke.

Bottled at 48% to hold the intensity.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Highland toffee and treacle meld with dark honey and coal smoked barley.

Palate: Burnt orange and treacle on a base of cloves and smoked bramble.

Finish: Licorice and dark fruit into the lingering rich, earthy finish.
