- Glendronach 20 Year Old Octaves
Glendronach 20 Year Old 1994 vintage Octaves Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. This is a one-off bottling created by combining five PX Sherry Octaves.
Limited release of 371 bottles.
Nose: An intense concentration of chocolate fondant, candied ginger and glace cherries; all perfectly balanced with a warming grind of black pepper, rich oak spices and a slight touch of liquorice.
Palate: Full-bodied sherry characteristics give dark molasses enriched Christmas cake. Sour plum syrup and delightful cigar box spices. A subtle combination of dark espresso and nutty dryness gives the finish tremendous depth.
Finish: A rare combination of heavyweight sherry Octave maturation and robust, rich Highland whiskey characteristics, capturing the darkest depths to the most delicate spice.
Glendronach Single Malt Whiskey
Glendronach malt whiskey distillery was established north east of Huntley in the Highland whiskey region by James Allardice in 1826. The malting floors at Glendronach Distillery closed in 1996 and it was the last distillery in Scotland to heat its stills directly with flames from a coal-fired furnace, until it had to comply with new regulations in 2005. Glendronach Distillery is resplendent with a traditional cask iron mash tun, wooden washbacks, four stills. Famous for its well-aged and top quality sherried single malt, for example Glendronach 21 Year Old Parliament, and single cask releases. The distillery is now owned by Brown Forman of America.
