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 Andalucía.
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.
After ceasing production in 2015, The GlenDronach Revival 15yo now returns to the core range of the distillery’s line-up. The expression embodies The GlenDronach’s signature style of Spanish Sherry Cask maturation in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from Andalucía, quietly growing in stature for 15 years in the darkness of their dunnage warehouses.
An intoxicating aroma of maraschino cherry, ripe bramble and dark chocolate mint with hints of orange bitters and walnut liqueur. Honey-glazed apricot and ripe fig with a crescendo of black cherry, angelica and muscovado. Long and enveloping finish with dark manuka honey, herbal bitters and dark chocolate.
