GlenDronach Latest Single Cask Bottlings


5th July 2013
GlenDronach releases Batch 8 of its popular single cask bottlings.

GlenDronach has today announced the release of Batch 8 of its popular and highly rated single cask bottlings.

Selected by Master Blender Billy Walker, this latest batch from the award-winning Aberdeenshire distillery was filled in May and all eight expressions are available as of today.

The eight, ranging from 42 to 10 year old, share GlenDronach's typically luxurious, richly-sherried and fruity characteristics, with waves of delightful eucalyptus, plums, damsons, sweet chocolate, almonds…even toffee-drenched raisins and red chilli!

One of the eight is an aspiring youngster – the new kid on the block is a zesty 10 year old from cask 1988. On the nose, white pepper and cinnamon. On the palate, treacle-covered ripe autumn fruits, fresh mint and toasted nuts. An unusual but hugely appealing young Highland malt to savour while relaxing in a sun-lounger this year!

The 8 new GlenDronach single cask bottlings details are as follows:

  • GlenDronach 1971 cask no. 1246 / 42 year old / Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon / 44.6% ABV
