GlenDronach Revival 15 Year
GlenDronach // Highlands, Scotland
In 2009, the GlenDronach re-launched its core bottlings; the 12, 15, and 18 year old. This was done as a celebration of sorts for its new owners, the folks that also own the BenRiach Distillery. Revival is a name chosen to highlight the fact that this distillery is once again independently owned. This is aged exclusively in oloroso sherry casks. Note: Due to insufficient stock, this was discontinued in 2015. A new bottling was reintroduced in October 2018.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask Typeex-oloroso Sherry
"There's a smoky element on the nose, almost like burnt coffee. Soft leather and toasted malt are found as well. A creamy texture and brown sugar sweetness are discovered on the palate along with more dark malt. Dried red fruit doesn't make an appearance until you're at the end of the road. "
