GlenDronach Cask Strength (Batch 6), 56.1%

Price: $71 Issue: Summer 2017 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The latest batch of cask strength GlenDronach should make Aberlour a'bunadh look to its laurels. It is matured in a combination of Pedro Ximenez and oloroso sherry casks. The nose is quite perfumed, with sweet sherry, figs, nutmeg, satsumas, and candied peel. Voluptuous in the mouth, with early bright fruit notes, cinder toffee, and caramel, followed by darker sherry and raisin notes. Lightly peppery and tannic, with plain chocolate. £55
