GlenDronach 8 Year Old ‘Hielan’ Single Malt Scotch Whisky

$89.95 inc GST

700 ml, 46% abv, Scotland (Highland)

This single malt has been matured and married in a combination of the finest bourbon and sherry casks for at least 8 years. Non-chill filtered, of natural colour and bottled at 46%, The Hielan’ encompasses a unique combination of sweet, buttery aromas with spicy, sherry overtones. The Hielan’ is a tribute to the dialect spoken in the distillery’s surrounding area in the Scottish Highlands.

“Sweet vanilla, toasted marshmallows and heather honey aromas give way to liquorice, cherry tart and stewed cooking apple with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg on the palate. A spicy, nutmeg-loaded finish is long and lingering and warming”
