The GlenDronach Allardice 18 Years Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Nestled in the valley of Forgue, deep in the East Highland hills, is The GlenDronach, one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland, creating the finest richly sherried single malts for nearly 200 years.
The GlenDronach Allardice is named after the distillery’s founder, James Allardice. This Highlander was matured completely in Oloroso sherry casks, and was originally released in 2009 following the distillery changing hands back in 2008.
Colour: Bright deep gold with a tawny center.
Nose: Sweet aromatics of fudge and Muscovado sugar. Fruit compote and glacier morello cherries provide added complexity.
Palate: Rich dark and seductive. Remarkable flavours of stewed fruits and all-spice marry together with classic aged Oloroso sherry and toasted walnut bread combined with chocolate.
Finish: Fresh blackcurrant, blueberry pancakes with a generous helping of maple syrup.
