All about making whisky
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.
Single Cask #475 - Oloroso Sherry Butt Limited edition of 642 bottles Exclusive to LMDW Profile: peaty and elegant. A basketful of red berries (redcurrant, blackcurrant and blackberry). Aromas of spices and cocoa. Fresh notes of lemon. Liquorice undertones.
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
