Which has the upper hand, malted barley or sherry? Try this particular Glendronach, jointly selected by The Nectar of The Daily Drams and La Maison du Whisky, and maybe you will be able to answer the question! To throw you off the scent, there is also a fairly strong note of peat in this whisky. What if the two opponents were of equal strength so that this jousting match were to end in a perfect draw? In any case, one thing is for sure, this Glendronach proudly upholds its origins.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : mahogany.
  • Nose : firm, warm. The initial nose is typical of Glendronach and made up of beeswax, candied apricot, grilled walnut and chocolate. After which it becomes more herbaceous and earthy (liquorice, slightly peaty). Once again the Glendronach style is fully present. Later, notes of precious wood, dark fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry) and incense.
  • Palate : simultaneously firm and smooth. Unusual sharp notes of lime and dried fruits (date, walnut) try to outdo one another. Truly invigorating for the taste buds. Particularly dynamic with sherry and then grass (hay, lucerne), and finally malted barley. Spices (ginger, cinnamon) transcend the end of the palate.
  • Overall : long, continues along the same lines as the palate. All of a sudden, red fruits (strawberry, redcurrant) take over the palate. It becomes more and more like chewing on a liquorice stick. The retro-olfaction is tertiary (penny buns, lichen) and the empty glass is a subtle mixture of malted barley, curry and fig.
The brand

The brand

Glendronach means “valley of the brambles” in Gaelic. Located near the town of Huntley in the east of Speyside, this distillery uses traditional production methods (malting that includes partial use of a peat-fired kiln and stills heated by ‘direct firing’), which largely explains its powerful character and the strong personality of its single malt. It is always a very rich malt, with this demonstrated best in its sherry cask bottlings which reveal a perfect balance of sherry, malted barley and (red) fruit notes. Find out more
