TASTING NOTES

EXPRESSION

GlenDronach Cask Strength - Batch 5

APPEARANCE

Rich amber edged with gold.

NOSE

A perfect combination of sweet golden sultanas and rich fig syrup holds a contrasting warmth of ground almonds, orange bitters and a gentle dusting of black pepper.

PALATE

Demerara sugar-glazed dark fruits lighten to apricot syrup infused with stem ginger and vanilla. Crisp candied peel and gentle cigar box spices combined with mellow notes of freshly mashed barley add great complexity to the long, classic palate.

CONCLUSION

The combination of elegant sherry influences and robust Highland style creates a perfect example of the traditional GlenDronach character.
