- Glendronach 43 Year Old Batch 11 Cask #2920
Glendronach 43 Year Old 1973 Vintage Batch 11 Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. Single Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon #2920 bottled November 2014. 523 numbered bottles.
Nose: A robust combination of rich prune syrup and blackberry jam with deep dunnage characters, sweetened by hints of mocha and a dusting of cinnamon.
Palate: Intense treacle toffee floods over sour plums and roasted coffee. Harmonising waves of leather and tobacco give great depth and are balanced perfectly by a subtle toasted walnut and date back note.
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.
