The first ever peated expression from the current owners of GlenDronach.
Matured in Bourbon casks, followed by a second period of maturation in the finest Oloroso and PX Sherry casks.
Non Chill Filtered and Natural Colour.
Peated to 25ppm.
Appearance - Vivid harvest gold.
Nose - A delightful aroma of ripe gooseberries dusted with cinnamon sugar combines with a contrasting crisp citrus twist. The delicate peat influence gives a smouldering charred wood character filled with freshly ground barley and hints of vanilla toffee.
Palate - Vibrant oak spices and floral heather honey develop to rosehips and barley sugars, all warmed by a touch of white pepper. Subtle peat notes complement the palate by giving a delicate depth and dryness of glowing campfire embers.
Finish - A unique marriage of crisp fruit and barley laden Highland characteristics surrounded by gentle peat smoke - an intriguing reminiscent of heather burning in the distant glens.
