GLENDRONACH 11 ans 2006 PX Sherry Puncheon Batch 16 57,2%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 55036
The Batch 16 cask selection showcases facets of The GlenDronach house style; robust, elegant, fruity and full-bodied. Each cask individually demonstrates the finesse, powerful complexity and rich layers of sherry cask maturation found in every GlenDronach expression.
All Batch 16 casks express The GlenDronach’s persistent dedication to the time-honoured methods and traditions since founding in 1826, a time when sherry and port casks were first imported and used to mature single malt.
2006 Cask #1979 has been bottled at cask strength, non chill filtered and at natural colour. 679 bottles are available in UK and Europe.
- Appearance : Tawny amber.
- Nose : Sticky PX sherry with layers of toasted cedarwood and chocolate orange on a base of cinnamon spiced bramble jam and baked plum.
- Palate : Nutmeg-spiced bramble toffee and clementine burst on the palate, carried on a velvet wave of cocoa and wood resin.
- Overall : Cranberry, hazelnut and raisin linger into the perfectly balanced sweet and dry finish.
- 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
