Aberdeenshire distillery GlenDronach, has today launched an 18 Year Old Tawny Port finished expression.

The GlenDronach 18 Year Old Tawny Port Finish (46% ABV) is first matured in European oak casks and then finishes its maturation in a small batch of Tawny Port casks. This gives the whisky its own unique flavours and aromas, including those of golden syrup, red fruit compote and red grapefruit.

Commenting on the launch, GlenDronach Sales Director Alistair Walker said: “We launched our wood finishes range four years ago and the response worldwide has been excellent. We’ve carefully selected whisky that has been gently maturing in lighter casks so that aficionados experience the full impact of the Tawny port cask. The very pleasing result contributes extra depth and concentrated stewed fruit flavours. It’s another outstanding whisky that we’re delighted to add to our portfolio.”

This latest release replaces GlenDronach’s 15 Year Old Tawny Port Finish expression.
