Glendronach 19 Year Old 1995 Vintage Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. Single Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon #3326 bottled July 2014. Bottled exclusively for the United Kingdom market. 661 numbered bottles.
Nose: Soft, well-rounded oak spices combine perfectly with rich plum juice and dates. Hints of citrus and cedar wood add a crisp contrast to the initial soft nose.
Palate: Lashings of dark fruit syrup and a dark chocolate depth are warmed by cracked black pepper and touches of orange bitters. The long finish explodes with traditional sherry characteristics.
