GlenDronach and Peated ... Yes, please!
This particular whisky has been distilled using peated malted barley. The GlenDronach ‘Peated’ pays homage to the peat historically used to dry the malted barley in the traditional floor maltings during the early days of the distillery. The subtle peated notes in this intriguing expression complement the classic GlenDronach Highland character and the sherried style using ex Pedro Ximénez, ex Oloroso sherry and ex Port casks, bottled at 48% abv.
A delightful aroma of ripe gooseberries dusted with cinnamon sugar combines with a contrasting crisp citrus twist. The delicate peat influence gives a smouldering charred wood character filled with freshly ground barley and hints of vanilla toffee.
Vibrant oak spices and floral heather honey develop to rosehips and barley sugars, all warmed by a touch of white pepper. Subtle peat notes complement the palate by giving a delicate depth and dryness of glowing campfire embers.
