We present to you Glendronach ' Cask Strength' Batch 7 -2018.
At The GlenDronach, the time-honoured process of production ensures they continually master the art of crafting one of the world’s richest, fruity and complex Single Malts. This Cask Strength release offers a deeper insight into this profile by bottling the whisky in its most natural and non-diluted form.
Like all previous Cask Strength batches from The GlenDronach, this expression continues the tradition of marrying the finest Spanish sherry casks from Andalucía; Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez . The Oloroso contributes to the fruity and elegant nature of The GlenDronach, with notes of dark bramble fruits and gentle spices. Pedro Ximenez contributes the robust and full-bodied richness of The GlenDronach, often characterised by notes of dark chocolate and stewed fruits. With each Cask Strength release, the Master Blender selects the ideal marriage of these two casks before bottling without chill filtration, at high strength and naturally deep in colour, as was the custom before the turn of the 20th century. Add a drop or two of water to reveal a cornucopia of flavour – from wild figs and brambles to baked apple and damson plum. Such is the reward of the 7th batch of The GlenDronach Cask Strength, a richly sherried Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky matured in finest Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso Sherry Casks.
