This latest release from the Aberdeenshire based distillery, is said to deliver notes of wild strawberries, cinnamon sugar, sweet wood smoke, hints of black pepper and mint on the nose. Followed by notes of crisp, tart cranberry juice, wood smoke and red berry compote on the palate.

Commenting on the news, Rachel Barrie, GlenDronach’s Whisky Maker, said: “The GlenDronach Peated Port Wood may be considered a surprising expression from this distillery but in keeping with historical styles. Peat imbues the spirit with regional notes of wood smoke and smouldering charcoal, layered over The GlenDronach’s archetypal fruitiness.”

The GlenDronach Peated Port Wood, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £65.00.
