GlenDronach was founded in 1826 in the Highlands of Scotland. Although the distillery originally used direct coal fire to heat the stills, in 2005 this distillery finally changed to an indirect heat source (steam). Today, Dr. Rachel Barrie is the brand’s master blender. GlenDronach Original 12 Year is a sherry matured single malt made using both oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma is fairly aromatic with dark malt and vanilla. Smoke is found as well, but it's a charred barrel quality and not peat reek. Smooth on your palate, there is dark caramel and more malt to be found. Somewhat chewy, the finish has a woody aspect and the sugar and spice are backup singers to the headliner that is dried fruit."
