GLENDRONACH 12 ans 2007 Pedro Ximenez 56,5%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 56659

Quantity limited to 2 bottle(s) by client.

Widely considered one of Scotland’s most traditional distilleries, Glendronach was one of the last to use directed-fired coal stills, until 2005 when it made the decision to begin using indirect heating with steam. This absolutely remarkable bottling invites us to discover a very complex palette of flavours and aromas. It also allows us to contemplate a chromatic palate which, throughout the tasting, constantly revisits every shade of yellow. This tireless work leads to a radiant and spirited Glendronach.

the powerful initial nose is malty and vinous. Allowed to breathe, candied (Mirabelle plum), exotic (pineapple) and dried fruits create remarkable harmony with barley grain, spice (nutmeg) and liquorice. The concentrated attack stages the same duality, with the addition of aromatic plants (verbena, chamomile). The heady (lily) finish evokes rum (sugar cane) and the end of the palate is particularly mineral (schist).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : golden yellow with glints of burnished gold.
  • Nose : powerful, rich. On the initial nose, malted barley and sherry engage in a passionate dual in which both come out stronger. Indeed, a gentle malty bitterness appears alongside numerous candied (apple, pear, Mirabelle plum) and exotic (pineapple) fruits and nuts (almond, fresh walnut). With time, the nose becomes increasingly syrupy (roasted grape). Next, a deliciously liquorice and spicy (ginger, nutmeg) interlude precedes the triumphant return of malted barley. Magnificent.
  • Palate : dense, concentrated. Continuing on perfectly from the nose, the attack also wavers between a very nobly expressed malty bitterness and a fruit that overflows with exoticism (banana, pineapple). The mid-palate is transcended by notes of verbena, chamomile and green tea. Candied citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit) then bring lots of freshness to the end of the palate.
  • Overall : long, juicy. With lots of enthusiasm, the start of the finish never wavers in its dedication to exploring the world of rum (sugar cane, sugarcane juice). A handful of white florals (lily, lilac, lily of the valley) beautifully fragrance the extremely refreshing atmosphere. A true elixir of youth for the taste buds, juicy fruits (grape, white peach) are a joy to discover. The retro-nasal olfaction is characterized by notes of green liquorice and blonde tobacco. The empty glass highlights a deeply delicate minerality (schist, basalt).

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
