Glendronach Sherry Single cask release Batch 14.

GLENDRONACH DISTILLERY has today (19th October) released its fourteenth batch of single cask bottlings.

 

Retrieved from dark corners of the warehouses and hand-selected by Master Distiller Billy Walker, there are twelve phenomenal malts in Batch 14 ranging from 12 to 30 years.

 

All twelve malts are drawn from either Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheons or Oloroso Sherry Butts.


The profile of the casks within this batch presents a range of fruit notes, from plums, prunes and apricots to orange marmalade, caramelised orchard apples and treacle-covered autumn fruits.

 

The oldest, cask # 1037, is 30 years old and was distilled in December 1985. Bottled at 52.3% vol, this dark amber gold veteran offers notes of fruit malt loaf with a dusting of ground almond and aged-oak spice.

 

As a contrast, the youngest in the batch is cask # 5523, a 12 year old distilled in January 2004 and bottled at 58.3%. White pepper and cinnamon combine on the nose with sweet dates and sultanas, while hints of ginger and vanilla add to a rich taste profile.

 

Sales Director Alistair Walker said: “As we select these batches of The GlenDronach single casks, we continue to discover a treasure trove of aged spirits in our warehouses. Batch 14 is a magnificent collection of rare casks which will be warmly welcomed by GlenDronach connoisseurs worldwide.”
