- Glendronach 15 Year Old Tawny Port Finish
New 2011 wood finish which replaces the now discontinued 20 year old. The tasting notes suggest this is a terrific 'dronach.
Nose: Stewed damsons and plum conserve. Raisins, sultanas and fine grand cru chocolate provide lovely depth and structure. Palate: Fruit shortcake drenched in vanilla custard, with a scattering of dried figs, dates and wild strawberries. Smooth tannins and light acidity highlight a wonderfully long finish. Finish: A fruit laden whisky to enliven the taste buds.
Glendronach Single Malt Whisky
Glendronach malt whisky distillery was established north east of Huntley in the Highland whisky region by James Allardice in 1826. The malting floors at Glendronach Distillery closed in 1996 and it was the last distillery in Scotland to heat its stills directly with flames from a coal-fired furnace, until it had to comply with new regulations in 2005. Glendronach Distillery is resplendent with a traditional cask iron mash tun, wooden washbacks, four stills. Famous for its well-aged and top quality sherried single malt, for example Glendronach 21 Year Old Parliament, and single cask releases. The distillery is now owned by Brown Forman of America.
