This latest release from the Highlands based distillery, is said to deliver notes of mulled cranberry, orange and clove liqueur, dark honeyed treacle and nutty oak on the nose. Followed by notes of spiced bramble wine, treacle toffee, chocolate raisins, cinnamon, maple and sultanas on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Rachel Barrie, said: “This
eleventh batch of The GlenDronach Cask Strength embodies The GlenDronach‘s
celebrated style of Spanish Oak maturation in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso
sherry casks from Andalucía. Add a drop or two of water to this latest
expression to reveal a cornucopia of flavour - from richly spiced bramble wine
and treacle toffee, to lingering Seville orange peel and nutmeg layered with
caramel and maraschino cherry.”
GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 11, will be available later
this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £68.00.
