The GlenDronach has unveiled Batch 17 in its popular Single Cask series, a release of 14 single cask bottlings.

The GlenDronach Single Cask Batch 17

The GlenDronach Distillery has unveiled the next instalment in its popular cask strength single cask series, the GlenDronach Single Cask Batch 17 is a batch of 14 single cask whiskies ranging from 12 to 28 years old, and distilled between 1990 and 2007 all of which have been bottled at cask strength with the ABV ranging from 49.3% to 60.9%.

Each cask in batch 17 has once again been selected by the GlenDronach's Master Blender Rachel Barrie, Rachel has hand picked 12 sherry cask matured single malt whiskies and a couple of  Port Pipe matured whiskies which should give fans of the predominately sherried GlenDronach something a little different to explore.

As we have come to expect from the GlenDronach single cask batch releases this seventeenth batch includes a rich selection of the distillery’s signature Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from Andalucía in Spain, as well as two Port pipes from the Douro Valley in Portugal including a cask from 1995, one of the last remaining casks at the distillery from this vintage.

Rachel commented on this latest batch of single cask whiskies, saying: "The batch seventeen cask selection truly celebrates The GlenDronach house style; robust, elegant, fruity and full-bodied. Each cask individually explores the sophistication, powerful intricacy and rich layers of Spanish sherry cask maturation found in every GlenDronach expression; from layers of crème brûlée, treacle toffee and over-ripe banana in 1990 to baked blackberry and currants with dark chocolate in 1992, burnt raisin and Oloroso-soaked tobacco leaf in 1995 to toasted pain au raisin and butterscotch simmering beneath the surface in 2007."

All 14 single cask bottlings will be available for purchase from the GlenDronach distillery shop. In Europe, Casks 7905, 221, 847, 5976, 325, 887, 6769 will be available for purchase. In Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Canada Casks 2623, 113, 5896, 416, 3040, 3343 and 3359 will be available for purchase.

The GlenDronach Single Cask Batch 17 will also be available to purchase from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange but I doubt they will be available for long when they take stock of them so don't hang around.
