GlenDronach 18 year old, Single Malt Whisky, 70cl.
With the temporary loss of the GlenDronach 15 year old ‘Revival’ the onus has fallen upon the 18 year old ‘Allardice’. Named after the distilleries founder James Allardice, the GlenDronach 18 year old is matured exclusively in Oloroso sherry casks.
Nose: Sherry notes so thick you need a knife to cut them! There's a hint of old rum in there too, with pineapple and brown sugar in tow.
Palate: Christmas cake, rum again, chocolate-coated hazelnut, runny honey and a hint of Sauternes.
Finish: Fresh blackcurrant, blueberry pancakes with a generous helping of maple syrup.
