GlenDronach Cask Strength (batch 5), 55.3%

Price: $72 Issue: Winter 2016 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This batch of GlenDronach's popular cask strength has been aged in a combination of oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. Malt, honey, rose blossom, and chocolate-coated Turkish Delight, plus emerging vanilla on the nose. The palate is full and rounded, very sweet, with more milk chocolate and very gentle spice. The finish is lengthy, with milky coffee, sweet spices, and subtle oak.
