Nestled in the valley of Forgue, deep in the East Highland hills, is The GlenDronach, one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland, creating the finest richly-sherried Single Malts for nearly 200 years.
The GlenDronach is of true Highland style: a heavy and robust spirit, perfect for long maturation period in sherry casks. At The GlenDronach Distillery, they have carried forth the tradition of their founder James Allardice since 1826, maturing the whisky in the finest Spanish Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from AndalucÃa.
They continue to master the art of sherry cask maturation and the Highland Single Malts are recognized for their deep colour and rich flavour profiles; which range from the sweet fruity flavours of the Pedro Ximénez to the dry and nutty notes of Oloroso. Their well-kept secrets have been guarded for nearly two hundred 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.
The GlenDronach Allardice 18 Year Old is a fitting tribute to the founder of thedistillery. Matured in fine Oloroso sherry casks from AndalucÃa in Spain.
Sweet aromatics of fudge and Muscovado sugar. Fruit compote and glacier morello cherries provide added complexity. Rich dark and seductive on the palate. Remarkable flavours of stewed fruits and all-spice marry together with classic aged Oloroso sherry and toasted walnut bread combined with chocolate orange.
