GlenDronach 12 year old, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl
Nestled away just outside of Huntly in the north east, GlenDronach is one of Scotlands oldest licenced distilleries, founded by James Allardice in 1826. Renowned for using high quality sherry casks, Glendronach has long been a favourite amongst connoiseurs.
Nose: Rich cereals, struck match, raisin, cinnamon, caramelised sugar. Opens with some sweeter PX and lots of delicious raw ginger before becoming creamier with hazelnuts.
Palate: Fruits, peels, buttery. Pain au chocolat, a little marmalade on toast before becoming firmer and nuttier with spiced raisins.
Finish: Smoky toffee and nut brittle.
