The GlenDronach Distillery announced the eleventh release of its highly anticipated Cask Strength Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
This expression boasts the exceptional depths of sherry wood maturation, continuing the legacy set out by distillery founder James Allardice in 1826, which marries Highland spirit to Spanish oak, it says. The GlenDronach Cask Strength offers a deep insight into the distillery’s character by bottling at the whisky’s natural cask strength, as was the custom before the turn of the 20th century, it notes.
The GlenDronach’s Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie intricately composed each marriage of The GlenDronach Highland Single Malt for the deepest color, with the duality of the Andalucían casks bringing depth, character and complexity to the Highland spirit, the company says.
“This eleventh batch of The GlenDronach Cask Strength embodies The GlenDronach‘s celebrated style of Spanish Oak maturation in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from Andalucía,” Barrie said in a statement. “Add a drop or two of water to this latest expression to reveal a cornucopia of flavor — from richly spiced bramble wine and treacle toffee to lingering Seville orange peel and nutmeg layered with caramel and maraschino cherry.”
Bottled at 59.8% ABV, The GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 11 is available to purchase nationwide for a suggested retail price of $100 a bottle.
