This latest release from the Highlands based distillery, is said to deliver notes of rich mocha, creamy cappuccino, orange, raisin-filled fruit cake, cherry liqueur and sandalwood on the nose. Followed by notes of spice, dark chocolate tiramisu, flamed Seville orange peel, toasted almond and crystallised ginger on the palate.

Commenting on the launch Rachel Barrie, said: “The GlenDronach Cask Strength offers connoisseurs a deep insight into the distillery’s signature character, by bottling at the whisky’s natural cask strength, as was the custom before the turn of the 20th Century. Add a drop or two of water to open up the liquid and reveal a cornucopia of flavours; from rich mocha to raisin-filled fruit-cake and indulgent crème brûlée. Such is the reward of our twelfth batch of The GlenDronach Cask Strength, a richly sherried Highland single malt Scotch whisky matured in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks.”

GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 12, will be available later this month from specialist retailers. RRP (tbc).
