Glendronach Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky 12 year old
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Highland|
This superb richly sherried single malt is matured for at least 12 years in a combination of the finest Spanish Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks. Non-chill filtered, of natural colour and bottled at 43%, the GlenDronach 12 year old Original is a sweet, creamy dram. Deep amber-red gold appearance. On the nose, sweet, creamy vanilla, with hints of ginger. Spiced mulled wine and pear. The palate is rich, creamy, silky-smooth. Warm, rich oak and sherry sweetness, full mouth feel, raisins and soft fruits. Spicy with medium length and a dry finish. Long, full and firm, slightly nutty.
Aged in former American whiskey casks, then finished in barrels that previously held PX and oloroso sherries, this single malt balances sweetness, spice and oak. Caramel and vanilla aromas are echoed on the velvety palate, plus cocoa and espresso, finishing with clove, cinnamon and a hint of lemon peel.
