NOSE : Cocoa, liquorice root and baked orange on a base of sultana bread and crème brûlée.
PALATE : Treacle toffee and raisin-filled toasted brioche crescendo to baked apple and bramble pie, butterscotch and star anise.
FINISH : Layers of richly roasted malt, and a lingering dark chocolate, espresso finish.
Master Blender, Dr. Rachel Barrie said:
“The GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 9 is incredibly rich and full-bodied; the result of years of slow maturation in Pedro Ximénez puncheons and Oloroso sherry butts.
Add a drop or two of water to reveal a cornucopia of flavour; from treacle toffee and raisin-filled toasted brioche, to baked apple and bramble pie and star anise.This crescendos into a lingering dark chocolate, espresso coffee finish. The depth of this Highland Single Malt’s character is boundless.”
