GlenDronach 8 Year Old - The Hielan
Launched June 2015 to the UK market, an 8 Year Old whisky from GlenDronach.
Matured and married in a combination of the finest bourbon and sherry casks (both PX and Oloroso).
Appearance - Amber with a burnished copper glow.
Nose - Rounded waves of orange blossom and a citrus twist flow over buttery, golden sultanas, sun dried raisins and ripe yellow plums - all dusted with a touch of vanilla.
Palate - Crisp, vibrant oak spices warm soaked sultanas, apricot jam and gingerbread - all rounded by delicate hints of butterscotch, cocoa and toasted almonds.
Finish - Classic sherry overtones with a contrasting crisp dimension demonstrate the complexity of the traditional Highland character.
From GlenDronach Distillery.
