Glendronach 12 Year Old single malt Scotch from the Highlands. A non-chill filtered whisky that matured by using a special double-cask method
This Glendronach 12 Year Old single malt whisky comes from the Highland region in the Scottish Highlands and presents itself with a strong, natural colour of sherry. But not just the complexion brings sherry to mind.
The rich scent of the sweet fortified wine rushes forward, couples with the aroma of barley, hazelnut and oak and evokes the temptation to try a sip of this beautiful Scotch whisky. The first aroma that touches the palate is the fruity sweetness of sherry.
It is joined by the taste of oak and nuts as well as a hint of marmalade on burnt toast. A voluminous, pure, long-lasting finish reveals the savour of buttery cereal and turns into a soft dryness.
Something special about this non-chill filtered Glendronach 12 Year Old is the method of production. While other double matured whiskies are firstly filled in ex-bourbon casks and mature during the second step in ex-sherry casks, this Highland whisky is produced the other way round.
The Scotch spent the first part of the maturing process in Oloroso and Pedro-Ximenez sherry butts. Here established the intense aroma of sherry. The Oloroso casks add a fruity flavour and the Pedro-Ximenez casks provide for the gentle sweetness.
Subsequently, the Glendronach 12 Year Old aged in casks made from American white oak. During this last step, the whisky becomes more complex and gains an aromatic oak flavour. A bottle contains 0.7 liter of Scotch with 43 % alcohol by volume.
The extraordinary method of production turned out to be successful. Combined with the long tradition and centuries full of experiences, the Glendronach Distillerys 12 year old convinced the judges of the following competitions:
- Malt Maniacs Awards 2013 Bronze in the category Daily Dram
- International Wine & Spirit Competition 2013 - Silver Outstanding in the category Scotch Single Malt Highland
Along with the 15 and 18 years old Glendronach whiskies, the 12 years old constitutes the core of the product-range. Around them, many artful produced single malts are to be found. One thing all of them have in common, is the sweet sherry flavour that is very typical for Glendronachs products.
