The GlenDronach Distillery has announced the tenth release of its Cask Strength Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. This expression is a marriage of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks.
“The GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 10 is incredibly rich and full-bodied with the full depth of sherry cask maturation at its heart,” says Master Blender Rachel Barrie. “Presented at natural cask strength, it offers a cornucopia of flavor, from richly spiced fruitcake to dark cherry and ginger jam.”
The GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 10 is 58.6% ABV. As is the case for all The GlenDronach expressions, it develops a deep color naturally over time from the Spanish oak in which it rests.
This new release is available across the U.S. at a suggested retail price of $99.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
On the nose is mocha, apricot and baked orange chocolate cake, with roasted almond, walnut and raisin on a base of aromatic toasted oak, the company reports. The palate brings spiced fruitcake with nectarine, dark cherry and honeyed sultana raisins.
This follows the recent release of The GlenDronach Aged 50 Years.
