GlenDronach Peated Port Wood

46% abv

Nose: Cranberries, stewed apple, ‘Strawberry Dreams’ from a box of Roses, and glacé cherries, Danish Pasrties and roasted walnuts give this a real sweet, juicy start. Then herbal, earthy notes of bracken, wet slate, charred twigs, and smouldering gorse power through.

Palate: The opposite way round now, with the smoke rolling over the tongue first; singed heather, sweet leather, aromatic wood smoke (burning sandalwood?) barbequed bananas, and charred pineapple. Then there’s the sweetness, with blackberry, figs, dates, and raspberry ice cream sauce before some cocoa and lapsang souchong drift through.

Finish: sweetly smoky, with some cask stave and syrupy fruits.

Overall: Aimed high, and hit the target square on the nose. I really, really enjoyed this. I’m a big fan of Glendronach, and when a whisky comes with a bit of hype (even if it was only in my own mind) it’s a tough task to meet expectations, regardless of how old, rare, or expensive the bottle is. This is £60 well spent. It really is. Go on, treat yourself this Christmas, and snap up a bottle of this before it’s sold out.

Nestled in the valley of Forgue, deep in the East Highland hills, you will find GlenDronach, one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland, creating some of the finest richly sherried single malts for nearly 200 years.

The GlenDronach is of true Highland style: a heavy and robust spirit, perfect for a long maturation period in sherry casks.
GlenDronach continues to work towards mastering the art of sherry cask maturation, and their Highland whiskies are recognized for their deep colour and rich flavour profiles, which range from sweet fruity flavours, from the Pedro Ximenez casks, to the dry and nutty notes, from Oloroso casks. Their well-kept secrets have been guarded for nearly 200 years by a parliament of rooks who love The GlenDronach so much they try to nest in the warehouses. The distillery folk believe as long as the rooks remain at the distillery, it will be good for the whisky.
