Glendronach 21 year old Parliament Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in Oloroso and Pedro Ximinez sherry casks, and takes its name from the ‘parliament’ of rooks that have been nesting in the trees overlooking the distillery for almost 200 years.
Nose: A delicate mix of ripe autumnal fruits - notably blackberries and red plums. Rich Oloroso sherry and candied orange segments. Spiced oatmeal biscuits and toasted oak fragrances bring excellent weight and balance.
Palate: Resolute flavours of fine Oloroso sherry and bitter chocolate sauce, which has been spread liberally over homemade plum pudding. This is all infused with fabulous spicy notes - cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Full bodied with smooth tannins.
