    GlenDronach based in the Scottish Highlands is known for their sherried single malts, so it's no surprise that a combination of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks were used for the maturation of this cask strength expression. The barrels were selected by GlenDronach Master Blender Rachel Barrie. This Highlands single malt carries no age statement and is bottled without chill filtration or added coloring. The 12th batch was released at 58.2% ABV. Available in the US beginning May 2023. (SRP $104.99)

Master Blender Sandy Hyslop was inspired by the flavors and spices of India and he created a unique blend of malt whiskies which were finished in virgin oak casks. This limited edition expression is available globally beginning May 2023. (SRP $160)
