Glendronach, Cask Strength Batch 4 (Scotland)
The fourth cask-strength batch from GlenDronach was released a few weeks ago, and comprises 17,806 bottles. It does not carry an age statement. GlenDronach Sales Director Alistair Walker notes that "The whisky for this fourth edition in our renowned series has been carefully selected from a combination of the finest Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks. Non-chill-filtered and of natural colour, the Cask Strength has been produced in the classic GlenDronach style." Initial reticence on the nose, followed by creamy vanilla, figs, tangerines and sweet Sherry. Viscous and sweet on the palate, with cocoa powder, raisins, cream Sherry, ginger and brittle toffee. Sweet chilli in the nutty, lengthy finish. 54.7% ABV, 70, 51.00, specialist whisky merchants.
