GlenDronach Single Cask Batch 15


16th June 2017
GlenDronach releases Batch 15 of its popular single cask bottlings which includes the oldest ever release from the distillery.

GlenDronach 1990 Cask No. 7005 Batch 15Although not exactly a well kept secret what will be in this summers batch of GlenDronach single casks bottlings, the distillery today officially unveiled Batch 15 in their very popular single cask bottlings series, and the first release under the watchful eye of GlenDronach's new Whisky Maker Rachel Barrie.

Batch 15 is a batch of six single casks bottlings all distilled in the 1990's, with the oldest of the bunch being a GlenDronach 1990 Cask No. 7005 which was matured in a PX Sherry Puncheon for 27 years, GlenDronach describe it as having the appearance of polished cherry wood, with notes of fresh mint leaves on the nose, together with touches of cigar box and cinnamon in rich plum juice on the palate.

The youngest from the bunch is the 21 year old GlenDronach 1995 Cask No. 4418 which has also matured in a PX Sherry Puncheon, they say that toasted oak spice and roasted coffee beans can be found in the nose, while the palate offers crisp candied peel, with sweet figs and sugared dates dusted with cocoa.

Whisky Maker Rachel Barrie commented on Batch 15 saying: "Aficionados of The GlenDronach will not be disappointed with this latest Batch, picked from the richest and deepest casks in our earthen-floored warehouses. I am privileged and delighted to see them released from their slumber, for enjoyment by discerning connoisseurs around the world; as time slowly passes, I anticipate the unearthing of more hidden gems."
