GlenDronach Peated Port Wood, 46%
Price: $97 ● Issue: Spring 2018 ● Reviewer: Gavin Smith
This is non-chill filtered and carries no age statement. The nose is earthy, with damp herbaceous borders, quite acrid smoke, and spicy cranberries. Fresh, juicy red berries on the palate, with background peat smoke becoming ashy, with rich red wine notes. The red wine persists in the finish, accompanied by prickly black pepper. £70; Not available in the U.S.
